This Week's NEW Channel
The 1940s was a pivotal decade in the history of jazz. Swing was still America’s popular music, as bands led by Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, and Count Basie were household names in America. In the mid-40s, however, everything changed. Swing music waned in popularity as it became harder and harder to keep big bands together. Small jazz groups became more prevalent. New York-based musicians Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie developed a completely new style of jazz known as “Bebop,” and the rest is history. “Decade: ‘40s” has the best in 1940s jazz, from swing to bop.
