The Music of 1951

1951 was another year in which popular music had no clear direction. Although the most noteworthy musical developments were happening in jazz — including the first A-plus record of the decade — disparate genres such as country and avant-garde classical had unique advancements of their own. Legendary performers ranging from Duke Ellington to Hank Williams released several classic LPs in 1951.
