But is that pretentious and any different from Punk, Metal, Shred, Death Metal, and everything that came from rock? And how about modern Techno Pop and dance music that evolved from Disco which evolved from Funk which evolved from Jazz Funk, and originated with Jazz?
You mean to say that American Jazz music is the father of all contemporary music? What a profound statement! I like profound. I couldn't agree more.
Didn't jazz spawn from the "Blues"?
So all contemporary music comes from Blues? Or did Blues and Jazz develop simultaneously?
I kind of like old drums:)
