From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jazbo Brown was, according to legend, a black delta blues musician from around the turn of the 19th century.

Jazbo Brown is semi-legendary, referred to in DuBose Heyward's Jasbo Brown and Selected Poems (1924) as an "itinerant negro player along the Mississippi and later in Chicago cabarets". This book also states that the Jazz music genre has possibly taken its name from this travelling musician. Jazbo Brown is featured in the song "Jazzbo Brown from Memphis Town" composed by George Brooks and performed by Bessie Smith.
