The radio and phonograph had entered most of the American homes during the 20s. That essentially spread one of the biggest American musical movements to date. Although under-appreciated today, jazz was the music to listen to when it came about.
Rodrigo Mola Mendoza's insight:

The roaring '20s featured some of the most famous jazz musicians like Kid Ory, King Oliver, Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Paul Whiteman and Duke Ellington. 
This site includes a brief biography of each one of these musicians. It has also a Jazz sub-genres section, which explains the bases of each one of them. It is also a good site becouse is up to date.

I really like this site becouse of the detailed explanation of the history of Jazz, by Chris Tyle, Jazz musician and historian. It also contains a playlist with some of the most famous songs of the 1920's, such as "Whispering" or "My Blue Heaven". Some of the songs in the playlist were played at Broadway musicals.
