jazz musicians were often considered to be "unworthy" to the upper class.....often seen as drug addicts and second rate criminals .....but the upper class all payed to hear them play and would hire them to play at their events so they could come across as "hip"
Wow I see. Wouldn't it be nice if the upper class viewed rock musicians in such a manner
