Anyone read Nick's followup?He calls what he plays "Black American Music (BAM!)" In the next installment he says, "Black American Music is created by Black musicians, but anybody can play it."Let me make one thing clear. I am not dissing an art form. I am dissing the name, Jazz. Just like being called N!gg@r affected how Black people felt about themselves at one time, I believe the term “JAZZ” affects the style of playing. I am not a N!gg@r and I am not a Jazz musician.
OK then. But what do we call BAM created by non-Blacks or non-Americans? I kinda like BAAM. Black-American-Affiliated Music.
