Notes and Editorial Reviews

Much more than any other European melodies, there were of course many English-language songs that were taken up and adapted by Count Basie, Jimmie Lunceford, Benny Carter and Art Tatum, all of them jazzmen from vast America. Folk songs, nursery-rhymes and music-hall airs all animated the swing of the New World. Immigrants also came from Eastern Europe, and Russians, Hungarians and Czechs all contributed their musical traditions to the melting-pot of jazz.
