Back in the sixties Australian jazzman Len Barnard observed that when we 
became jazz enthusiets in the forties we called the jazz of the twenties 
"classic jazz" . Now in the sixties, he said, bebop etc has been around for 
the same period. Should we now call bebop "classic jazz".

Of course Len was only stirring the possum, and nobody, at least in 
Australia, fell for the trap.

Best wishes
