Can Music Be Perfect? Vol. 36

Who made America's truly indispensable music? Armstrong, Holiday, Sinatra... JB if you like. But what is American music's most fertile era? I'll vote for the Blue Note recordings of the 1960s. So many riches to choose from. Go ahead, pick one out at random and take a listen. Here's one. Billy Higgins plays drums. He gets a couple paragraphs in Wikipedia. His face should be carved into Mt. Rushmore. Did as much for us as Mr. Jefferson.
