The Big Band era fell between the wars, arising from the Depression and Prohibition. The world was ready to try something new, to have fun, and to start dancing to this new music. From the "Roaring Twenties" to WWII, Big Bands traces the existence of the great bands and the culture that inspired them. From Paul Whiteman to Benny Goodman, this book follows the influences of the speakeasies to the excitement and anxieties of the Second World War.
