In 1918, Columbia Records sent Ralph Peer, its Director of Artists and Repertoire, to New Orleans to find a jazz band. Ralph Peer would discover many important acts in the 1920s, such as the Carter Family and Jimmie Rogers.

But in 1918, after searching high and low for three weeks, he wired back: “NO JAZZ BANDS IN NEW ORLEANS.” Neutral
