For nearly a century, New York's famous Tin Pan Alley was the center of popular music publishing in this country. It was where songwriting became a profession, and songs were created-to-order for the biggest stars. This is the first resource tool that identifies the major publishers, composers, lyricists, singers, dances and jazz bands. It covers the entire history of Tin Pan alley, from its humble beginnings in the 1860s to its demise following world War II. Arranged in an A-Z format, each entry includes name, birth and death dates and a short biography and bibliography. Music teachers, students, professors, musicians, writers and fans will find this eminently useful, and even a bit addictive.
