The Crooners is an epithet for artists of the early to mid 1920s through the 1950s, all of whom can be characterized by a distinctive soft, subtle style — or in other words, “crooning.” These artists were generally accompanied by a big band (think of jazz ensembles of the early 20th century) or more simple piano piece.
