The introduction of the recorder in the music industry was a turning point for jazz music. While in the past, entertainment was initially confined to venues such as cabarets, dance halls, and hotel super clubs, with the dawn of the recorder people were able to listen to music in their own homes. One major advantage was that the people could listen to their favorite piece tirelessly for as long as they desired. It also allowed the artists to exercise their creativity more freely, without the pressure of a live audience to reckon with. Musicians were able to preserve their spontaneity of their work. These Chicago recordings created a distinct genre that has surpassed the jazz age and was carried on to the future decades.
