Subject: RE: Black music in Europe: A Hidden History
Well, yeah - it would stand to reason that some of these guys (and gals?) might be playing some African-ish music in their off-time, at least. .... But I can't help imagining some Hollywood production in which the Black horn-player suddenly goes all Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B in the middle of a solemn procession before the court - to the bemusement, initially, but soon the great delight, of the assembled lords and ladies ....
Sorry - too many Saturday matinees at an impressionable age ....
