Influenced by jazz, pianist and singer Hoagy Carmichael was perhaps the first
great songwriter of the century (and the prototype of the "singer-songwriter"),
as Free Wheelin' (1924), a "hot jazz" piece (recorded by Bix Beiderbecke as Riverboat Shuffle),
Washboard Blues (may 1925), accompanied with cornet, trombone, clarinet, piano, bass, banjo and percussion,
Stardust (october 1927), styled as a ragtime and reminiscent of Louis Armstrong's Potato Head Blues (1927),
Rockin's Chair (december 1929), a duet with Armstrong,
Lazy River (november 1930), recorded with
Bud Freeman on tenor saxophone, Tommy Dorsey on trombone, Jimmy Dorsey on clarinet, Joe Venuti on violin, Eddie Lang on guitar and many others,
Georgia on My Mind (september 1930), with Bix Beiderbecke on cornet, Bud Freeman on tenor saxophone, Jack Teagarden on trombone, Jimmy Dorsey on clarinet, Pee Wee Russell on clarinet, Joe Venuti on violin, Eddie Lang on guitar, Gene Krupa on drums and many others,
Lazy Bones (september 1933) for solo piano and voice
but much of published music still served the Broadway stages.
He was also one of the first white musicians to truly "understand" the rhythm
of black music.
