Igor Stravinksy in USA - in the middle of the 1900's
from Memories and Commentaries, page 235:
The only jazz I had heard in the United States was in Harlem, and by bands in Chicago and New Orleans, and the jazz performers I most admired at that time were Art Tatum, Charlie Parker and the guitarist Charles Christian. To me, 'blues' meant African culture.
