The jazz movement in Eastern Europe is believed to have contributed to the fall of Communism and the increased popularity of jazz around the world. After the Second World War and the Communist takeover of Eastern Europe, jazz was considered an art form of imperialism and forbidden in official media.

Musicians learned about jazz by listening to the American shortwave radio broadcasts or smuggling jazz records from abroad. Jazz became a symbol of resistance against the censorship and yearning for freedom of an unrestricted artistic expression.
