Put it this way: Jazz is a good barometer of freedom… In its beginnings, the United States of America spawned certain ideals of freedom and independence through which, eventually, jazz was evolved, and the music is so free that many people say it is the only unhampered, unhindered expression of complete freedom yet produced in this country.~~~Duke Ellington

Dubbed "The First Lady of Song," Ella Fitzgerald was the most popular female jazz singer in the United States for more than half a century. In her lifetime, she won 13 Grammy awards and sold over 40 million albums

I think the idea is now for blacks to write about the history of our music. It's time for that, because whites have been doing it all the time.
It's time for us to do it ourselves and tell it like it is~~
Hahahaha...Yeah, Diz you hit the nail on the head. Tell it like it is...
