The Music of 1954

With the advent of cool jazz and hard bop, you could say that 1954 was the turning point that marked the beginning of modern jazz. Modern pop was also at a crossroads, as Frank Sinatra entered into his mature period and Bill Haley & the Comets put rock’n’roll on record. A sign of great things to come.
