Description - Tin Pan Alley by David A. Jasen

For nearly a century, New York's famous 'Tin Pan Alley' was the centre of popular music publishing in the US. It was where song writing became a profession and where songs were made-to-order for the biggest stars. Covering the full history of Tin Pan Alley, from its humble beginnings in the 1860s to its demise following World War II, this is the first resource to identify its major publishers, composers, lyricists, singers, dances and bands. Entries are arranged alphabetically and include names, birth and death dates, brief biographies and bibliographical listings. This will be an eminently useful reference work for libraries catering to music teachers, students, professors, musicians, writers and fans of popular song.

Buy Tin Pan Alley by David A. Jasen from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
