Abstract:

While most people are aware of the classic white songwriters of the '20s and '30s, few realize that many of the best-loved songs of this era were written by African Americans. Rarely given their due, and covered only briefly in standard pop song histories, these important writers are finally highlighted in this landmark work. Based on new research, original interviews, and decades of archival study, Spreadin' Rhythm Around is the story of these talented songwriters who introduced new rhythms and subject matter into American popular song.

In sheer depth of research, new information, and full coverage, Spreadin' Rhythm Around offers a comprehensive picture of the contributions of black musicians to American popular song. For anyone interested in the history of jazz, pop song, or Broadway, this book will be a revelation.
