Juke Box Memories – Doo Wop An American Art-form

With the advent of CD’s, MP3’s,  I-Tunes, have made listening to your favorite music from any era easier.  Yet, none of it can replace the charm and memories that surround the quaint old Juke-Box.

As a pure American art form, invented by Americans in the music genre, music makers like W.W. Handy and Jazz hold that distinction.  However, not many know that the evolution of Doo Wop and Jazz evolved from slavery, when accapella singing was used in the fields not only to pass the time and ease the tedious labor but as a means of communication.

The harmonic sounds of the human voice gave rise to neighborhood singing stars and neighborhood talent competitions, that produced  Dion and the Belmonts, Frankie Lymon and the Teen-agers, creating musical phenomenons.

So, take a moment, enjoy the link and share with ROCKLANDVOICE your favorite Juke Box Memories.
