I have tried not to get drawn into this one, but the time has come to state 
my $0.02 worth. It's ALL music. I am a professional musician and I play with 
my bands and others. If the audience don't like the music we make they can 
walk away and not return. We perform a in variety of styles and to date they 
keep on coming back...whether it's "Moldy" music or Electric Blues. Listen 
to it all and make your own judgement.

I love listening to A.J.Piron, King Oliver, the 1940s revivalists and beyond 
in the "OKOM" genre. Also I listen to Muddy Waters and BB King. To say 
nothing of the MJQ and Charlie Parker. No-one can say that one musical form 
is intrinsically superior to another. What one can say is that  "Style X is 
my kind of music" without denigrating other styles.

Sermon now over. With the results of Katrina now so very apparent we should 
all pull together.
