Come and Trip It: Instrumental Dance Music, 1780's-1920's
Instrumental Dance Music 1780s to 1920s The Federal Music Society; Dick Hyman and His Dance Orchestra; Gerard Schwarz and His Dance Orchestra This recording demonstrates some of the major developments in American social dancing and its music from after the Revolution up to the beginning of electrical recording in the mid-1920s. Dances such as the waltz, polka, tango, quadrille, charleston, cakewalk and turkey-trot are still familiar today, their names holding a permanent place in popular culture. The music they were danced to, however, is often forgotten. This collection of hits, fads and phenomenons from the history of social dancing makes clear the evolution of popular dances and the reason they were popular. The lively performances capture an old-time feel with modern-recording clarity. The 36-page booklet includes extensive liner notes revealing the history behind each dance, where it came from and how it differed from region to region. Their stories, as they crossed back and forth between the continents and up through the classes, show the history of the United States from an intriguing angle. Come and Trip It is a delightful romp through the history of the exquisite social dance.
