Jazz History: The Standards (1920s)

JazzStandards.com: The premier site for the history and analysis of the standards jazz musicians play the most.
Kaylee Tolman's insight:

"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.'"

Kaylee Tolman's insight:

            "The Roaring Twenties was alternatively known as The Jazz Age. This "movement" in which jazz music grew in popularity by immense standards in the U.S., also influenced other parts of the world.

            Following World War I, around 500,000 African Americans in search of better employment opportunities moved to the northern part of the United States. With them, they brought their culture and in New York, the start of the Harlem Renaissance. During this period of time, the works of African Americans in fields such as writing and music escalated. Styles of music including Dixieland and blues became popular as well..."

King Oliver's Dixie Syncopators - Slow And Steady (1928)

"He was particularly noted for his playing style, pioneering the use of mutes. Also a notable composer, he wrote many tunes still played regularly, including "Dippermouth Blues", "Sweet Like This", "Canal Street Blues", and "Doctor Jazz". He was the mentor and teacher of Louis Armstrong. Two of Armstrong's most famous recordings, "West End Blues" and "Weather Bird", were Oliver compositions. His influence was such that Armstrong claimed, "if it had not been for Joe Oliver, Jazz would not be what it is today"

Kaylee Tolman's insight:

"By the mid-1920s, jazz was being played in dance halls and roadhouses and speakeasies all over the country. Early jazz influences found their first mainstream expression in the music used by marching bands and dance bands of the day, which was the main form of popular concert music in the early twentieth century."

The Jazz Age

The Jazz Age | Music&Jazz In the 20's | Scoop.it

The jazz age is an iconic time in in American history because of the fashion and the music.  In the 1920’s woman would go out and buy hundreds of dollars to try to look like a flapper, which is a famous look in the 1920’s because every woman in the USA wanted to look like a flapper.  Flappers would wear very shiny and outrageous dresses which people consider today as a costume or and outfit that a famous singer would wear during one of their concerts.  Also back in the 1920’s all people ever listened to was smooth, cool jazz.  Jazz was sold and played in black neighborhoods in large cities such as New York and Chicago but it was also really popular down south because many people would listen to jazz day in and day out and never get tired of hearing it.  Jazz music was played with instruments that some people don’t normally like or have never heard of which made it all the more interesting because the sounds all put together by the instruments was something that you thought would never happen.  Jazz was club music back in the 20’s and now a days people don’t really listen to jazz anymore and listen to rock or hip hop and it’s not really played in the clubs either.  But some places still hold jazz music competitions and play it for the very mellow down to earth (artists and people like that).
