Thaddeus Russell: 7 tracks the mafia is the United States A Better Place: "Renegade History" (PHOTOS)

Imagine an American free jazz. Imagine an America that alcohol is illegal. Imagine an American without Broadway, Hollywood and Las Vegas. Imagine an American without racial integration or freedom to be gay in public. In my new book, "A Renegade the United States history", I show that you have to do is to imagine the American history without organized crime... Here are 7 ways gangsters made America a better place:

At the end of the 19th century some Sicilian mafiosi 300 controlled significant portions of the economy of New Orleans, most significantly many homes closed, saloons and nightclubs that defines New Orleans as the capital of southern pleasure. When avoided respectable American new music called 'jass' as black and criminal jungle music, but many others have shown a willingness to pay to hear and dance, he New Orleans gangsters him happily rendered their business. The first buildings in which eventually renamed "jazz" music played professionally - brothels in Storyville district near French Quarter - belonged to the Sicilian Mafia.In 1917, a teenager Louis Armstrong received his first salary to play the trumpet in a tavern belonged to Henry Matranga, head of the family of Matranga and probably the most powerful criminal United States at the beginning of the 20th siècle.Armstrong and other black jazz as Buddy Bolden, Freddie Keppard, inventors and Joe Oliver received their first pay George Delsa, Manager of Anderson Rampart street café, a first feature jazz clubs, which used to protect the club and prostitutes who worked mafia connections to police.

In Chicago and New York, Italian gangsters and operated many Jews number initially most important jazz clubs.Al Capone, who controlled several clubs of Chicago who introduced jazz to mainstream audiences, had a passion for music and was the first to pay the performers better pay subsistence.Clubs belonging to the crowd on State Street in Chicago employee that jazz musicians sing a national phenomenon, including bands by Armstrong, King Oliver, Fletcher Henderson and Benny Goodman.Selon one interpreter, "the worst places on State Street always had the best music."But it was true in New York, where, according to a jazz musician, where music was invented rather than simply made to the general public is "managed by large do wonderful not tramps...." clubs that had a way to run them better than anyone else

According to the scholar Jerome Charyn, "it would have no age of jazz and very few Jazz without white gangsters who have taken under their wing black and white jazz musicians."

Gangsters have that!

Way to go, gangsters!
