Not only an American phenomenon. You may have noticed that in the UK we 
recently had a Royal Concert supposedly celebrating the last 50 years in 
popular music.
Where were Humph, Barber, Ball and Bilk who have been playing here all that 
time? Nowhere!. We had a plethora of hasbeens who had a hit for 2 weeks in 
1965 plus a drugged out character from the Beach Boys. Jazz? Not a note!

A prophet is not without honour except in his own country.
