This chapter presents an essay by George Gershwin about jazz music and its possible future role in American music, which was published in the August 1924 issue Theatre Magazine. In this essay, Gershwin acknowledges that the true importance of jazz in American music is a subject over which controversy has raged back and forth. He expresses his opinion that jazz is going to revolutionize American music and that it will become absorbed in the great musical tradition as all other forms of music.

Keywords:   George Gershwin, jazz, American music, forms of music, musical tradition
