Jazz was founded by Black musicians in New Orleans in the late 19th century.
Some of the biggest names in jazz include Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Cab Calloway, Billie Holiday, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Louis Armstrong.
The artist with the most jazz GRAMMY wins, the late jazz composer and musician Chick Corea garnered 25 GRAMMY wins and 67 GRAMMY nominations overall across his six-decade career. He posthumously won his most recent GRAMMYs at the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards in 2021, one month after his death, for Best Improvised Jazz Solo and Best Jazz Instrumental Album.
