Crescendo Records - 1950

The Crescendo Record Company was founded in Hollywood in 1954 by Gene Norman.
He actually changed his name from Eugene Abraham Nabatoff to Gene Norman.
The label later became known as GNP Crescendo, which stands for Gene Norman Presents.
The inspiration for the label came from Gene’s successful nightclub on the Sunset Strip named, the Crescendo.
Beginning with live recordings at the club and evolving into studio recordings, the independent label’s releases eventually numbered in the hundreds.
Happily, they made studio recordings of some of the talented Hawaiian artists working in Hollywood in the 1950s.
The recordings are state of the art for the period, and are exceptional.

Hawaiian Country Rock - 1950s

The Hawaiian steel guitar, with its smooth, shivering sound, made its way to the US Mainland, where in the early 1900s, it showed up in blues and hillbilly music.
But the most important result of this trend was that country acts began adding steel guitarists to their rosters.
The 1950s developed a whole new type of music called Rock n’ Roll, created from a mix of rhythm and blues, and a little bit of country.
The 1950s country music had a mix of blues and rock n’ roll in it.
And in the 1950s, many country artists recorded Hawaiian tribute songs.
