What is the Difference between New Orleans Jazz and Traditional Jazz

Musically, traditional jazz musicians play in more of a swing-style.  The New Orleanian preference is not for an ensemble sound therefore it is  deemphasized in favor of solos. Traditional jazz  also differs from its southern origin by being faster paced, resembling the hustle-bustle of city life.

Traditional  jazz  is also characterized by its use of syncopation. New Orleans jazz, on the other hand,  is characterized by its use of collective improvisation.
