Bolden was born the year Reconstruction ended.
There's only one photograph of his and no recording of his playing. Legend says he created the jazz beat,

Born in 1877, he was a key figure in the development of jazz. Like other musicians from the era he played everything: waltzes, polkas, mazurka, whatever the diverse population of New Orleans called for.
