Tunes of the Twenties and All That Jazz-The Stories Behind the Songs

Tunes of the Twenties and All That Jazz-The Stories Behind the Songs

by Robert Rawlins

The first book of its kind to tell the stories behind the classic songs of the Jazz Age. With a Foreword by Vince Giordano (Musical Director for the HBO series Boardwalk Empire), this colorfully illustrated book embarks on a musical journey through the era of speakeasies, gangsters, and hot jazz. Robert Rawlins discusses each of the 250 songs in his previous publication "The Real Dixieland Book," and takes readers backstage to share the intriguing, sometimes unbelievable stories associated with their publication and subsequent history. "I do wish I had this book when I was working the five seasons of Boardwalk Empire - it would have been a great help to me!" - Vince Giordano. 294 pp.
