THE SONGWRITERS, COMPOSERS AND LYRICISTS

Much of the vocal music of jazz came from popular entertainment: vaudeville, revues, musical variety and dramatic shows from Broadway and Hollywood. The best of the hundreds of songs written for those productions passed the test of time and became the standard material for jazz instrumental and vocal music. These songs came to be informally known as The Great American Songbook.
