The Popular Style
This chapter, which takes the story up to about 1914, deals first with the late 19th-century vernacular (and its early twentieth-century successor), demonstrating what this ‘light’ music had in common with the ‘serious’ music of the same period. It then proceeds to the blues and early jazz, pointing out its links to the same vernacular.
