Let's try also to remember that almost all the Classic Cartoons that those 
kids watch just like many of us did have OKOM Jazz in them.  

They are ready and willing to embrace it if only somebody will explain to 
them what the heck it is and get them further motivated to like and play it as 

Teaching them to play death rock and Coltrane in school is not going to get 
the job done, nor is teaching them midi computer electronica.

'Tis the World War Twelve of Music coming Folks, get out your weapons of 
choice, (washboards too) and get out to those schools and start teaching those 
kids a thing or two about OKOM.  Who knows maybe some of them will actually REBEL 
from their parents OZZY OSBORNE music and play some real music and like it.  
The only bird's head they will bite off will once again be the head of a 
marshmallow chicken from the Easter Basket.
