THE ELECTRIC MICROPHONE WAS INVENTED IN 1925, AND THE FIRST TALKING MOVIE  THE JAZZ SINGER IN 1927.  THE JAZZ ERA, DANCE BANDS, AND HOUSE BANDS OF THE TWENTIES, LEAD TO AND ALONG WITH ADVANCES IN SOUND AND FILM RECORDING TECHNOLOGY  TO THE GOLDEN AGE FOR MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS, AND THE GOLDEN AGE OF HOLLYWOOD.
