  Polish Music Journal 5.2.02 - Labunski: Poland's Contribution to Music
The first half of the 18th century was characterized in Poland by the growth of secular music, the further development of instrumental music and the shifting of art patronage from the court to the wealthy magnates and landlords.
This period was marked by the development of symphonic music and produced several distinguished composers: W³adys³aw ¯eleñski (1839-1920) chiefly known as the author of the opera "Goplana," and of symphonic and chamber music.
[12] Their music is remarkable for its model character and unusual scales, derived from Polish folk music; by its fresh and vigorous rhythm; by its humor and healthy objectivism, all in keeping with the spirit of the new Poland, a spirit of action, optimism and self-reliance.

 The History of Production Music
Music packagers in Hollywood during the 1950s, found ways to re-package B-movie film cues into libraries to score the new medium of television and a few radio shows along the way.
Although such companies may be listed in media directories as sources of Production Music, we omit them from this history since, by and large, their styles do not overlap the Light Music genre, and their composer/arrangers may be a bit less skilled than those composers listed in the Light Music Hall of Fame.
MUTEL music editor Leon Klatzkin often is credited as a composer, for the purpose of collecting royalties from the uses of MUTEL cues and themes.

 Journal of Music Therapy: Early Beginnings of Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy, The   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy is an improvisational and compositional approach to individual and group therapy that resulted from the pioneering teamwork of Paul Nordoff and Clive Robbins over a period of 17 years.
The Nordoff-Robbins approach to creative music therapy is based upon the belief that there is an inborn musicality residing in every human being that can be activated in the service of personal growth and development.
A historical examination of the early Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy may be useful in understanding visions and foundations of the approach itself eventually contributing to the growth of the field of music therapy as a whole.2

 Various Artists: Savoy Blues 1944-94 - PopMatters Music Review
Billy Vera, producer (whatever that means) and below standard editor and annotator of this three-CD set in the Savoy Jazz series tells us that Lips "was a lively, engaging performer and a powerful trumpet soloist in a day when the line between blues and jazz was a blurry one".
Lips Page came up in Kansas City, and there (and in few other places) some of the music produced really was jazz with more intense blues than was elsewhere usual; and blues which remained intense despite how much jazz was in it.
Lips is featured at the beginning of a fairly clumsy selection of very good 1940s jazz-blues from a Savoy catalog handled infinitely better by previous reissues.

He left Pomona College early to travel in Europe (1930-31), then studied with Cowell in New York (1933-4) and Schönberg in Los Angeles (1934): his first published compositions, in a rigorous atonal system of his own, date from this period.
He moved to San Francisco in 1939, to Chicago in 1941 and back to New York in 1942, all the time writing music for dance companies (notably for Merce Cunningham), nearly always for prepared piano or percussion ensemble.
There were also major concert works for the new instrument: A Book of Music (1944) and Three Dances (1945) for two prepared pianos, and the Sonatas and Interludes (1948) for one.

A decade of struggle lie ahead and, when Bradshaw's big band recorded again, in 1944, the music was more R&B and jump-oriented.
The majority of Bradshaw's recordings were cut during 1950-1954, although there would be one session apiece made in 1955 and 1958.
With his sister Ella seductively serving for decades as his primary vocalist, pianist Buddy Johnson led a large jump blues band that enjoyed tremendous success during the 1940s and '50s.
