Instructions to students: Choose one of the discussion questions to answer in your initial post, being sure to address all parts of the question. Respond to two other students in the class who chose different questions from the one that you chose, if possible. 1. Jazz music was America’s most popular radio and dance club genre from the 1920s–40s. In the 1950s, its popularity began to dwindle, even though respect for the genre steadily grew. Today, jazz music is considered to be the equal in artistry and complexity to classical music, and it has about the same relatively small number of devoted listeners. What do you think caused this shift in jazz from popular to art music? 2. Listen to Billie Holiday singing “Stormy Blues” (acquire through legitimate music source or web search). Then, compare this legendary blues singer with modern day blues singer Amy Winehouse singing, “Love is a Losing Game” (acquire through legitimate music source or web search) What do these singers have in common? What is different about them? Which singer moves you more? 3. Listen to Robert Johnson’s recording of “Hellhound on My Trail” and then listen to Muddy Waters’ recording of “Hoochie Coochie Man”. What differences do you notice between Johnson’s Mississippi Delta Blues style and Waters’ electric blues? Comment on the instrumentation, tempo, lyrics, and feel of the music. In what type of venue would you be likely to hear Robert Johnson? Muddy Waters?
