"The Lady Is a Tramp" is a 'swing style' show tune from the 1937 musical 'Babes in Arms' .This song is a spoof of New York high society and its strict etiquette. It has become a popular Jazz Standard and recorded by numerous artists over the years....even Lady Gaga!
The decade of 1920s marked huge advances in the music industry. The phonograph record became the primary method of disseminating music, surpassing sales of sheet music and piano rolls. The music industry, ever keen to discover new ways of making profits, realized that record, sheet music and piano roll sales could all be tied together. The “song plugger” was born: a person who worked to make sure his company’s tunes would be performed by dance bands or by singers, live and on records, ever hopeful of a “hit.”The decade marked the beginning of independent (or indie) record companies, smaller operations that weren’t afraid to take a chance on music and artists that the bigger companies shied away from.
Watch this Video - Most Jazz Standard chord progressions are based on a diatonic Circle of 5ths!! This is an excellent demonstration and explaination of how the Circle of 5ths is used!! Even though it is demonstrated on piano, it is relevant to all jazz instruments.
Observe the above Jazz Circle of 5ths in "Fly Me to the Moon" following the sheet music. - Look at the chordal movement!! (Teacher will give you the 'lead sheet' - [Melody, lyrics and chords])
Bring the Sheet Music to your next lesson for prac work.
White Jazz groups such as "The Original Dixieland Jazz Band" first made Jazz popular with the white audiences around 1917. They developed a white New Orleans Jazz style we call 'Dixieland'. (While existing at the same time, 'Dixieland' generally refers to 'white jazz' and 'New Orleans Jazz' refers to the 'black' version.)
This 'white' style tended to be more harmonically correct, more technical and less expressive (less funky/soulful) and more orthodox in in its sound. The 'New Orleans jazz' tended to feature more expressive techniques such as - Slides between notes/ glissandi/vibrato/and solo improvisations.
