Great Songs Of The Twenties

Books | Piano and Voice, with Guitar chord boxes

Publisher: Hal Leonard
Format: Sheet Music | Songbook
The magic of the Roaring Twenties captured in the words and music of 46 truly timeless classics. The birth of the radio and the Jazz Age meant that the 1920s has become fondly remembered for being the birth of popular music for the masses, and Great Songs Of The Twenties is a celebration of the best music to come out of that decade.

There are some true classics in here that everybody knows to be some of the greatest songs ever composed and performed. Standards like Honeysuckle Rose, Ol' Man River and Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen harken back to simpler days when serious and affective emotion was conveyed through nothing but the lyrics and melody of a song.

Not only these, but some tunes that are lesser-known are included such as I Cried For You, I Ain't Got Nobody and Sugar Blues that may be unfamiliar but no less fun to hear and play. Each song is arranged in standard notation for Piano and Voice, with Guitar chord boxes for a simple Guitar accompaniment. 

With the golden age of Hollywood, the Surrealists conquering the art world, and the end of Modernism creating some of the greatest literature ever, it's no wonder that the 1920s are a time remembered for being a fantastic explosion of art and creativity. This 1920s sheet music songbook will allow you to relive that incredible decade when the music was raw, the emotions were real and the tunes were the greatest ever.
