Can Rap be music?
What do Rappers do? They talk!
What is your verdict?

Country and Western
grows strong. All kinds of talent
resides in its fold.

The Three Tenors breathe

XVI.
Bob Dylan---just a
fair singer, but rather a
very fine poet

how much it does mean?

XIX.
The ambassador

charming scat singing.

XX.
I do long for the
classic guitar--- Segovia.
He made it legit!

XXI.
Do you recall the
sound of the Kingston Trio
at the Hungry I?

XXII.
Lena Horne, with her
grace, beauty, and dynamic
musical outputs.

XXIII.
We long for Motown's
D. Ross and the Supremes. They
produced sweet music!

dynamite presence.

Bunny Berigan's
golden trumpet and solo---
I Can't Get Started
