There was a presence in those who loved HH when it first came out, but no presence from the artists.
If you ever watched a jazz documentary (PBS, History Channel etc.) you would be under the impression the only people that ever done anything in jazz is white folks. They attempt to convey to the viewer an image of whites as the ones who put the wheels in motion - taking much credit for the evolution of jazz then claiming it to be an "American" art form (which we all know is synonymous for white)...
You mean to tell me that Kenny G. didn't invent Jazz???!!!
