Francesca Mainiero MUS 106 Section 1 Extra Credit: Chapter 5 1. In what ways were the gangster controlled Harlem nightclubs different than the Harlem dance halls? The gangster controlled Harlem nightclubs were highly associated with illegal activities, including the distribution of illegal alcohol. The prices for these nightclubs were extremely expensive, mostly in attempt to keep blacks out of these primarily white establishments. Harlem dance halls, however, were much more affordable to enter. The dance halls were primarily for dancing and socializing, not for attaining illegal alcohol. Also, blacks made up a majority of the dancing crowd, however whites were welcome as well. 2. Why and in what ways was the Fletcher Henderson Orchestra so important to the development of the jazz big band? The Fletcher Henderson Orchestra played a very important role in the development of jazz big bands in many ways. For instance, the use of sectionalization to divide the band into brass and reed instrument sections. Also the incorporation of ensemble swing techniques and block chord writing, which worked to thicken the melody. Also, the extensive use of improvised solos.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
