In the early 1920s, jazz musicians and bands came to Berlin to play music similar to jazz. Jazz was a new kind of music for Berliners and to that extent had a kind of exoticism. And this, in the truest sense of the word, brought the erotic Josephine Baker with their famous “Banana Dresses” on the Berlin stages.

Authentic jazz bands from the U.S. now guested more often in Germany, which helped the jazz all the more to notoriety as well as popularity. In Berlin, where now more jazz musicians of all styles performed, it came to a real jazz fever.
