For many years, Chicago has been a historic player in American music, putting its own spin on the genres of blues, jazz, soul, folk, rock and other styles. While the Chicago blues scene has produced such legends as Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf, Chicago-style jazz (derived from Dixieland) produced Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, Nat King Cole and others. Other prominent acts connected with the Chicago scene include Styx, Patti Smith, Liz Phair, Plain White T's, and of course, the rock band Chicago.
