The new kind of dancing the 20th century

Coming up this September on Fascinatin' Rhythm:

9/6       Irving Berlin’s Amazing Range Rhythm ballads, sob songs, syncopated dance tunes, ragtime songs, double songs. There was nothing the protean Irving Berlin couldn’t write.

9/13      Shimmy, Stomp, Slow Drag, and Strut  The new kind of dancing the 20th century gave us—hot, sexy, and deliciously low down.  An hour of “demonstratin’.”

9/20      Come Follow the Band  Once marches got so popular in the late 19th century, it was only a matter of time before Tin Pan Alley began to set its love songs to march tempos.

9/27      George Gershwin Early and Late  Even though George Gershwin had a discernable sound, the evolution of his style over a mere twenty years is striking.
