Why Jazz Happened
An excellent read, not only for people who want to know why jazz happened, but also for the ones who are interested in history and politics.

Paul M. Roark says:
Well, Thank you Dr. Science.
Thank you for that bit of brilliance.
May we all go so forthrightly into the night.
members of the faculty, faculty members, students of Huxley, and Huxley students.
I guess that covers everything.
I must quote, for no one will ever reflect back on a man who was oh, so, cut-and-pastable:
"Why should anyone of today, particularly young people, be interested in the question "why jazz happened"? "
We all must all ask ourselves this same strange, tragic question.
The same question all must upon each other and other of the each must ask.
We must ask why anyone of today would breed a hippopotamus with an octopus,
and then call it a octopotomos,
and glance so gracelessly with the graceless dance upon with which it digresslessly slings it's dancing legs.
But as a wise man once said,
A man who rode forward from a foul smelling wind,
and you can read about the ride in that great tome
"Sad Heroes Of The So Sad Glowing Golden West",
Available from Time-Life Books, once and only, and only once, on that one time TV offer,
"Just because our brain farts do not make a sound, do they so less, no less, stink?"
Or, in other words,
if a no-brained, pseudo-intellectual,
reviewing a book he hasn't even read
falls in the woods,
would anyone hear what he means?

Why is it that people, especially non-musicians prone to writing and gas-bagging, believe jazz is dead? Jazz is alive an well and being played all over the world. There are more young people interested in music, especially jazz, studying now more than ever. Perhaps because the "numbers" herald slow sales, etc. your analysis heralds doom, but the art form is alive and well. Open you eyes and your ears.
