Background Information on Popular Songs of the 'Great American Songbook' era

The group of songs known as the 'Great American Songbook' were popular songs written mainly from about 1910 to 1960, with the period of 1924 to 1950 being particularly fruitful for the creation of pop and jazz standards. Sheet music was still a huge industry during the first half of the 20th century, and these songs reached music fans via both sheet music and recordings.

This MuseScore group is intended to serve as a home for public domain piano sheet music documenting Great American Songbook standards as well as novelty songs and other songs from the era (and the 2-3 decades just prior to that era) that have been less frequently revived.

Copyright Background Information

As of 2019, perhaps only a 40-50 of the songs played consistently by jazz and traditional pop artists are in the public domain in the United States, but from 2020 forward, each year will see a treasure trove of pop and jazz standards pass out of copyright.

If you have transcribed or would like to transcribe public domain sheet
music of popular song standards, this is the group for you. For most works created prior to 1978, copyright expires after 95 years. This means that in 2019, works first published during or before 1923 are in the public domain.

The 'Great American Songbook' really started to kick into high gear around 1924, the year George and Ira Gershwin hit their strides with "Lady Be Good" (the Broadway show, from which comes the standard). Of course, Irving Berlin, who is often considered the first of the great 'Songbook' writers, published many songs (and a few big hits that have become enduring standards) from 1907 to 1919, a period when Jerome Kern was also writing and creating a handful of standards himself.

After 1924 came the torrent of song classics from the Gershwin Brothers, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, Harold Arlen, Harry Warren, Jimmy McHugh, Duke Ellington, Burton Lane, Jimmy Van Heusen, and dozens of other composers and lyricists, some of whom had long careers, and others of whom we know only for one or two songs.

While Vaudeville and the more upscale Broadway theater market created the initial demand for these songs, the advent of sound films in the late 1920s meant many more high-quality songs were needed every year. Simultaneously, the rise of the touring swing bands looking for radio hits created even more demand for songs, and thus the period of 1924 to 1950 became a golden age for composers with a knack for memorable melodies. Therefore, the years 2020 to 2050 will see the public domain get much much richer on the popular song front.

UPDATE: MuseScore user James Brigham writes in the notes to some of his scores that in Canada and the European Union, some newer songs are already in the respective public domains of those entities.

Sources of Free Public Domain Digitized Sheet Music

Many academic libraries have shared free scans of public domain popular song sheet music, and these collections will grow much richer over the next 20-30 years as songs from this golden era become available. The following links are just a few of the collections available online:

Johns Hopkins Libaries' Lester S. Levy Sheet Music Collection:
http://levysheetmusic.mse.jhu.edu/collection-search

Maine Digital Commons Vocal Popular Sheet Music Collection:

Sheet Music Consortium project via UCLA:

Note that newer sheet music arrangements of public domain songs may still be under copyright. The purpose of this group is to transcribe the original commercial piano sheet music publications that are now in the public domain.
