The 20’s were a time when many Americans sought to escape their strict, puritanical roots, kick up their heels, and party. The First World War had ended in victory for the US and its allies, and a new sense of freedom was in the air. However, the decade of the 20’s ended with a crash, leaving behind the legacy of its music, style, language, and behavior.

Music of the 1930’s was not one sound but many. From Jazz and Blues, romantic ballads sung by crooners, Scat singing out of Harlem, and Swing, music was danceable and unchanging.  Music was meant to keep people on their feet.
