The 1920s was dominated by jazz, jazz, and jazz. From the beginnings with Bessie Smith to the top with Duke Ellington. Much of it reflected the Harlem Renissance, but white men also got into the act, too.

Bessie Smith
The empress of blues and jazz always stunned the crowd with great singing and a little more.

George Gershwin
Broadway, Hollywood, and Carnegie Hall. George Gershwin did it all while writing songs that are still with us today.

Duke Ellington
The king of the big jazz band.
