JOE'S ONLINE ADVENT CALENDAR 2021



Welcome to the 2021 version of our annual Holiday Advent Calendar.

We are going to keep this Advent Calendar up into January, so you can revisit any days you might have missed or want to visit again.

The theme this year is "The Great American Songbook,” focusing on the composers and lyricists who created it. 

As many of you know, there is no official physical book called The Great American Songbook.  It’s an expression that refers to songs from the 1920’s through the 1960’s that came from Broadway, Hollywood, and Tin Pan Alley, and have achieved eternal popularity.  Songs that are considered “Standards.”

It was jazz musicians who first created “Standards.”  They found that songs by Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, George and Ira Gershwin, Rodgers and Hart, among others, were the perfect springboards for jazz improvisation. 

We have Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald to thank for making “The Great American Songbook” available to mass audiences with their best-selling LPs of standards in the 50’s and 60’s.  They made it cool to sing oldies.

Even the rock ’n roll generation of performers often find their way to the standards - in the last several decades, artists such as Rod Stewart, Paul McCartney, and Linda Ronstadt have had popular albums filled with standards. 

And Lady Gaga is among those who have brought the Standards into the 21st century through her recent collaboration with the legendary Tony Bennett.




Each day, we put the spotlight on a different composer, lyricist, composer/lyricist, or composer/lyricist team. 

We tell you a little bit about them, maybe relate an entertaining morsel or two of gossip, and give you video links to several of their songs.

And, because this is a website for doll collectors, each day we feature 10-12 different doll-related items that we have for sale on our website.

We hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
