van lingle Which has been the best decade for music (57* d) RE: Which has been the best decade for music 14 Feb 09


From the aural evidence my favorite era would be the '20s into the 30's. This was the era of George and Ira Gershwin, Rodgers and Hart, Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern, Bix Beiderbecke, the prime of Louis Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton, Duke Ellington, Annette Hanshaw, Charley Patton, Blind Blake, Willie McTell, Jimmy Rodgers, The Carter Family, lots of great southern folk musicians and just a whole bunch of other great songwriters, bluesmen, jazzers and trad musicians too numerous to mention.
Then the '70's was a great time for Irish music with Planxty, The Bothy Band and DeDannan about and actually at present there is so much good Irish, Scottish, Galician, etc.(oh hell, Celtic music) going on all over.
