Album

The obscure rock group the Jam Factory is totally out of place their inclusion is a feeble attempt to connect the evolution of music from ragtime to rock. Host Hugh Downs' narration is unconvincing, because it sounds as if he knows little about jazz and is reading the prepared script for the first time during the broadcast. The failure to identify the rest of each band's members is regrettable. You may submit artist- and album-related corrections to the TiVo data team by following the steps on this page.

The music history of the United States includes many styles of folk, popular and classical music. Some of the best-known genres of American music are blues, rock and roll, and country. The history began with the Native Americans, the first people to populate North America. The music of these people was highly varied in form, and was mostly religious in purpose.

The Today Show was obviously trying to show how music had evolved to the current day, but picked the uninspired rock band The Jam Factory, which released one record or so for Epic before disappearing for good into obscurity. Downs' description of them as a new and excellent band sounds more like scripted hyperbole rather than his own opinion their song You Better Listen is hardly worth a second hearing. Severinson and company return for another medley of tunes, yet it comes off rather stale, as most scripted medleys of numerous songs in a short time frame do. American music can find it's start in the early 18th century, mainly centered around church psalms. Much of this music had been brought over from English churches and it symbolizes the start of Music in the United States. These religous songs dominated America in its earliest stages as a country. The Ragtime Craze. The craze of the new genre of music called Ragtime sweeps across the southern portions of the country. Michael Jackson releases his greatest album Thriller which quickly rises to the greatest album of all time. Michael Jackson helped to poplarize Pop music and change that genre. He is often recognized as The Greatest Entertainer of All-Time. African American music. African Americans brought work songs and spirituals into the limelight of the 20th century. Spirituals were what they sound like Christian hymns with big and bold vocals written in a call-and-response style. African American and Appalachian folk music are the main roots of American popular music today. Powwows were also popular in the early 1900s, but tended to maintain its own identity instead of joining the musical melting pot. Popular American music. The 1990s saw rock music evolve into grunge, popularized by Nirvana, Soundgarden and others, which quickly gave way to mainstream alternative rock
