it is time to pause and reflect."

MISSION STATEMENT
added at the insistence of my daughter, Alexandra Bassell
American Music is mostly Black Music seen through a kaleidoscope.

I believe that this is the best focus on the various forms of  Black inflected Music
ever done.

Ain't nothing else happening!

As a kid I knew some extraordinary people! See the DEDICATIONS below!

Here is the heart beat to thousands of performances!


This front page AND the dedications have been rewritten dozens of times, and slowly have evolved into something that does justice to my inner state.

Pay close attention. This is a serious issue!

PERFORMANCES DISCLAIMER CONTENTS DISCLAIMER LINKS DISCLAIMER REWRITE STATEMENT

PERFORMANCE DISCLAIMER

1.) Some of these performances are old, and less than ideal. The key word is PATIENCE!
2.) Annoying advertisements are common. You need to watch start-ups before clicking out. The key word is PATIENCE!!
3.) By today's standards many of the older performances can be "stinkin' to beat the band!"
PATIENCE IS THE MAGIC WORD!!!
4.) Sound quality and video quality can be questionable. I confess to editing out genius when it becomes intolerable. The key word is PATIENCE!!!!
5.) Many performances are posted by amateurs. Problems are common. Especially performances that STOP &  START. The key word is PATIENCE!!!!!

CONTENT DISCLAIMER
I DO NOT support content theft. If you do not want me to use your picture I do not want to use it. 
ALL The graphics came through extensive Search, including the one above. I have deleted graphics used when it appeared they MIGHT be of a copyrighted nature. IF YOU OBJECT TO MY USE OF YOUR GRAPHIC LET ME KNOW ABOUT IT.  I WILL REMOVE IT AT ONCE!
I will have NO trouble replacing it!

There are thousands of graphics on this website, which since they were not marked I DID NOT TREAT like copyrighted property.
Picture Names were altered from original, and may differ from how I saved them.

To remove one you MUST give me the NAME OF THE ARTIST AND THE PAGE WHERE THE GRAPHIC APPEARED. I WILL LOOK UP THE CORRECT FILE NAME! 
If not sufficient  I WILL contact anyone leaving an address for further instruction.

TO EXPLAIN: This site started as a private link collection, originally called Bebop & The Blues, with no thoughts of making it public! Shit happens!!

If you prefer I MAY include a link to your website, if I feel it appropriate, if allowed to retain use of the graphic.
LINKS DISCLAIMER

Everything listed is HERE! If a link doesn't work please hunt and peck. You WILL find it. Everything has been moved around, new pages created, and there was confusion with pages ending with .htm or .html

The most common problem takes this form: When a link is cut and pasted  THIS (JahJah.htm#THE)  becomes THIS
(file:///C:/Users/Mark%20Bassell/Documents/Jazz/JahJah.htm#THE) which exists on my LOCAL computer but does not exist out there in the "Cloud!"

The Sea Monkey program could be re-named Space Monkey!

REWRITE STATEMENT
THIS WEBSITE IS VERY PLEASING TO ME PERSONALLY.
PER 1/6/13 THE REWRITE OF THE PAGE ON INDIAN MUSIC HAD A ROUGH FINISH!
IN ADDITION, THE WHOLE SITE WAS DRAMATICALLY TOUCHED UP!

IT HAS BEEN CHANGED FROM VERY GOOD TO SUBLIME!!!
