White like me

First let me say that I have thought often and hard about the whole question of authenticity, especially when it involves race, and my thoughts have generally roamed to the question of blues and other Old World forms of African-American music, from country songsterism to post–ragtime guitar, Delta to Piedmont blues, and gospel shouting to Jubilee quartets (and of course toward jazz, which is what brought me, originally, into the whole American music scene).
