The end of the 1920s brought about a new world of music, what became known as the "Big Band". Similar to the syncopated dance and big band feeling found in society during the early 1900s. A new interest in jazz and more specifically blues had begun to develop although it seemed to reflect the feelings of what was known as the "Slapstick" phase.
