John Hernandez Child-safe music (28) RE: Child-safe music 31 Mar 06

Jazz, blues, and ragtime were once considered unsuitable for children. It was music that celebrated the bad life and the musicians who played it often led the bad life. I don't know if any children went bad just by listening, but parents didn't want their kids to be corrupted by the jazzman's lifestyle.
