Film Music Friday - September 23, 2020 (Jazz in Films)

In the beginning jazz and films had a problematic relationship. Until the 1950s the main function of jazz in a film was strictly for entertainment…or what’s called “source music”…in other words, music that—on film—might be heard in a bar or playing on a radio. However, in the hangover following World War 2, and the rise of film noir, more composers began to use jazz in their film scores.
