Well TB. here's another chance for you to help me out. I've got a small oral to make (5 mins or so) on jazz in America in the 1930s and 40s. It's for English class, so I don't need too much technical detail, but more of an overview that can be absorbed by musicians and non-musicians all the same, and that focuses on the impact it had on the US at that time. Though I'll probably find a lot of info, I'd just like some suggestions on main topics I should focus on - the main musicians of the time, the main styles, the main fans of the genre. My English class is on the "beat" generation, by the way, so if it can tie in to them at all that would be great. Thanks.
