blooz Willie McTell, Robert Wilkins, Leadbelly At the dawn of recorded music technology, a few fans stuck microphones next to itinerant, often blind, black men and women in the American south. Thank god!
gospel Sister O.M. Terrell, Sensational Nightengales, Golden Gate Jubilee Quartet, Swan Silvertones, Reverend Martin Babb Most of the folks compelled to sing music have been compelled by spirit. Gospel is the roots of R&B at least. What a transition!
jaz Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Art Tatum Witty and often hyperactive. What's not to love?
rok Jane's Addiction, Jimi Hendrix, Fishbone, The Smiths The energy of youth, mostly white Americans.

wurld Ali Farka Toure After all this attention paid to music made mostly in America, shouldn't we listen to music from the rest of the world?
