Great Depression: American Music in the '30s collects popular songs from one of the nation's most challenging eras. Songs like Victoria Spivey 's "Detroit Moan," Billie Holliday's "Gloomy Sunday," Bill Cox 's "NRA Blues," and Rudy Vallee 's "Brother Can You Spare a Dime" convey the hard times and despair synonymous with that period, while Ted Lewis ' "There's a New Day Comin'" and "Headin' for Better Times," Hal Kemp 's "With Plenty of Money and You," and Artie Shaw 's "Whistle While You Work" add an optimistic touch. Great Depression: American Music in the '30s gives a good representation of how swing, big band, folk, and blues helped America express and enjoy itself during tough times.

A form of American music that grew out of African-Americans' musical traditions at the beginning of the twentieth century. Jazz is generally considered a major contribution of the United States to the world of music. It quickly became a form of dance music, incorporating a “big beat” and solos by individual musicians. For many years, all jazz was improvised and taught orally, and even today jazz solos are often improvised. Over the years, the small groups of the original jazz players evolved into the “Big Bands” (led, for example, by Duke Ellington , Count Basie , and Glenn Miller ), and finally into concert ensembles. Other famous jazz musicians include Louis Armstrong , Benny Goodman , and Ella Fitzgerald .
