The music would have been the boisterous Jazz of the 1920's. Fitzgerald coined the phrase, "the Jazz Age" that same year to describe the flamboyant orchestra-type Jazz,
"By seven o’clock the orchestra has arrived, no thin five-piece affair, but a whole pitful of oboes and trombones and saxophones and viols and cornets and piccolos, and low and high drums."
Certainly this paints Gatsby as a host with seemingly unlimited funds to throw a party. The whole time period also represented this decadent excess much like the music.
