V/A - RAG & STOMP: A RETROSPECTIVE ON 1930s WESTERN SWING
Regional and cultural variants have long been a distinctive feature of American folk culture and its musical scene. During the 1930s in the vast region of the American Southwest, particularly in Texas and Oklahoma, a younger generation, exposed to different musical heritages and contamination coming from different ethnic backgrounds, gave birth to a new form of popular dance music. In the hard years of depression, both rural enthusiasts who played by ear, and others who had basic notions of written music joined together and participated in the development of the so-called “western swing”. The elements which flow into this music are easily detectable on recordings by Western Swing groups, melting white and black swing across the country (Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Cab Calloway, etc.), together with blues, fiddle music and ragtime, which was particularly strong in the regional heritage of Texas.
