  • Overview

    From the Jazz Age to Streaming: The Soundtrack of the 20s-20s compares and contrasts trends in music and pop culture in the 1920s and 2020s – including how we purchase and listen to music (record players vs. streaming), how music is produced, marketed and released (radio vs. live concerts), trends around types of popular music and how that music was impacted by racial and economic disparities, and how artists from Louis Armstrong to Billie Eilish made their groundbreaking impact in these two musical eras.
