The most passionate advocate of the Original Dixieland Jazz Band's importance to jazz history was LaRocca himself, who never ceased claiming that his band had played a vital role in the "invention" of jazz in New Orleans during the early years of the 20th century.

 A "Dixieland" and "Jazz" Overview, Part 1 of 4
It's rather sad to relate, but even many Americans (the land where Jazz was born) no longer understand the meaning of the expression "Dixieland Jazz".
If we define 'Jazz' as the free improvisation on a melody, then "Dixieland Jazz" is that type of improvisation which we today associate with bands originally playing in America's 'Southland'.
That is to say, it is ensemble playing, with each instrumentalist getting adequate 'space' to display' his musical ideas on music written by composers of virtually every nation in the world.
