Sample text

And, like most myths, they all have elements of truth. The pop music world that began with ragtime is fiercely democratic. Whatever its underlying commercial foundations, it claims to be the music of all America, rich and poor, country and city, black and white (and yellow, red, and brown, when it bothers to acknowledge such subtleties). The only gap it does not strive to bridge is that of age: Each shift of genre blazons the arrival of a new generation and threatens all doubters with the ignominy of hunching over their canes and mumbling impotent imprecations as youth dances by.

When his blues hits swept the country, he did everything he could to get them performed and recorded by white artists as well as black, and one sign of his success was that many white dancers and listeners thought of blues as a new style rather than as a racial style. It is standard practice to write rock history as a story of white musicians building on black foundations, but for seventy years it has been anathema to write ragtime or jazz history that way.
