Hi Jim:

Again I was trying to make a point that those countries have embraced the 
cultural contributions from America in the form of Jazz music since the 1920s and 
continue to appreciate it and enjoy it much more than the pop culture that we 
are mass producing today.

When I speak of Culture on this list I am Always speaking strictly about 
Music, I though everyone knew that by now, guess not.
