This chapter presents the text of Mary Herron Dupree's article titled Jazz, the Critics, and American Music, which was published in the fall 1986 issue of American Music. This article describes the musical climate into which jazz arrived and flourished in the US. It also notes how George Gershwin capitalized on his connection with jazz during the 1910s and 1920s and then gradually began to disassociate himself from the term in the next decade.

Keywords:   jazz, American music, George Gershwin, music history, US, Mary Herron Dupree
