  Music history of the United States (1940s and 50s) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Many musical styles flourished and combined in the 1940s and 1950s, most likely because of the influence of radio had in creating a mass market for music.
Based most strongly off an electric guitar-based version of the Chicago blues, rock also incorporated jazz, country, folk, swing, and other types of music; in particular, bebop jazz and boogie woogie blues were in vogue and greatly influenced the music's style.
Monroe became the father of bluegrass music, and his band was a training ground for most of bluegrass' future stars, especially Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs.

 Theodor Adorno   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Already as a young music critic and unordained sociologist, Theodor W. Adorno was primarily a philosophical thinker.
His 1932 essay "On the Social Situation of Music" ("Zur gesellschaftlichen Lage der Musik") was Adorno's contribution to the first issue of Horkheimer's Zeitschrift für Sozialkunde ("journal for sociology"); it wasn't until 1938 that he joined the Institute for Social Research.
This was less an engagement with this style of music than a first polemic against the blooming entertainment and culture industry, a system by which he believed society was controlled by a top-down creation of standardized culture to intensify commodification.

 Coleman Hawkins feat. Kenny Clarke: Lausanne 1949 - PopMatters Music Review
In late 1949, jazz titans Coleman Hawkins -- who among his many accolades is credited with no less a distinction than virtually inventing the tenor saxophone as a legitimate jazz instrument -- and Kenny Clarke -- one of the founding percussionists of bebop -- toured France and Switzerland with a pick-up band of European players.
Lausanne 1949, Volume 13 in the Montreux Jazz Label's Swiss Radio Days Jazz Series, is a flawed, but nevertheless fascinating, and occasionally brilliant, artifact from one of these trans-Atlantic musical meetings.
His trademark tone, deep, husky and powerful without being blustery, combined with his acrobatic speed is actually the one element of the band that is consistently well-recorded on Lausanne 1949, and it is a marvel.

 Theodor Adorno - Education - Information - Educational Resources - Encyclopedia - Music
Especially Schoenberg’s revolutionary atonality inspired the 22-year-old to pen philosophical observations on the new music, which however were not well received by its protagonists.
Adorno's theoretical method is closely related to his understanding of music and his friend Alban Berg's twelve-tone revolution, which dethroned what we now know is a uniquely Western concept of tonality.
Thus his method was to use language and its "big" concepts tentatively and musically, partly to see if they "sound right" and fit the data.
