The Evolution Of Music
Although the international slave trade ended in 1807, in America slavery continued. In 1965, The Byrds adapted the song for “He was a Friend of Mine,” a tribute to President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Fine Clothes to the Jew , he turned to the blues for a poetic form derived from and answering to the desires, needs, and aesthetic sensibilities of the Black working class.
Ted Wallace’s House Rent Blues contrasted her with Fletcher Henderson’s piano and Charlie Green’s trombone. Pam Carter’s Weeping Willow Blues featured piano, trombone and Joe Smith imitating Smith’s vocals on cornet.

Blues lyrics rely on the idea that simple and understandable is easier for an audience to relate to than the eloquent and sometimes obscure lyrics in other popular genres of music.

The wealth of shows created a demand for new songs, and the popular music business began in New York’s Tin Pan Alley, a street named for the constant pounding of pianos by songwriters demonstrating their work to publishers. City or urban blues styles were more codified and elaborate as a performer was no longer within their local, immediate community and had to adapt to a larger, more varied audience’s aesthetic. Virginia’s white pianist James “Roy” Hall acted as the transmission chain between this generation of black boogie pianists and the generation of white rockers. His Dirty Boogie , Diggin’ the Boogie and Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On boasted some of the most manic rhythms of the genre. The year 1916 was the year of the mass emigration of blacks from the South to the North.
