Explore turn-of-the-20th-Century through the early 50's music for use in your next project. 

Denton & Haskins

Denton and Haskins is one of the oldest turn of the 20th century through the

early '50's music publishers in the United States. Life Music and Chesley Music are part of the Denton and Haskins collection. Though no longer publishing new artists, the company focuses on placing and perpetuating use of the classic material within its catalogue through licensing. Songs from our catalogue continue to be popular for use in all forms of media including film, television series, commercials and video games. Many of our songs have remained "hidden"for decades, but we're back!


Peruse our catalogue, listen to a few samples from our MP3 files. You may be surprised to hear or learn of songs you may never knew existed from Artie Shaw, Vincent Lopez, Jimmy Lunceford, Bob Chester, Una Mae Carlisle, Mezz Mezrow, Tommy Dorsey, Fats Waller, Stuff Smith, Gloria Parker, Lionel Hampton, Jelly Roll Morton and so many other greats. 


If you don't see a music sample for the song you're interested in, please send us a request as we have many more available that aren't uploaded yet.
