debussy is father of jazz

ragtime was incorporated by debussy after he heard Sousa play in paris in 1900 - the later jazz musicians took debussy's complex harmonies in turn and this formed much of jazz as we know it - so thank you claude! He processed ragtime - kinda cross breeding it with impressionistic harmony.
