"The mental health problems of one musician could have led to
the creation of jazz.
Without his schizophrenia, Charles "Buddy" Bolden - the man
credited by some with starting off the jazz movement - might
never have started improvisation, psychiatrists have heard.
And without this style change, music might never have evolved
from ragtime into the jazz movement we know today. "
