Jazz began in 1997 as a game system called Heroin. Heroin was intended as a variant of the Fuzion game system published by R. Talsorian and Hero Games. A year later, the name was changed to Fuzion Jazz. In 2001, the "Fuzion" was dropped, along with what remained of the Fuzion-based game mechanics, leaving only Jazz.

Despite its origins, the current version of Jazz owes far more to games like Amber, Over The Edge, and Risus than it does to games like Fuzion or Champions.

In early 2010, Jazz was converted into a wiki, in the hope that others might like to participate in Jazz's development.
