Growing up in the 1930's and 40's in New York City, how could Walter Seldon not be a Jazz lover? It was the soundtrack of the city, from Blues to Bebop and beyond. In clubs, at concerts, and on the radio, he listened...and he collected as much of that great music as he could. Though he'd missed the Dixieland Golden Age of 1920's Harlem, it was one of his favorite genres. One of his fondest memories was from 1947 when he attended a recording session of Duke Ellington and his band, then caught a...

Music, in all its forms, has long been a part of the domestic, religious, and social life of the Slovenes. With the spread of Christianity in the 5th century, liturgical hymns were introduced in the region they later inhabited. Secular songs can be traced back to the 9th century. The first director of the Vienna Boys Choir, established in 1498, was the Slovenian scholar, composer, and choirmaster Jurij Slatkonja, who also served as leader of the emperor’s musicians and as Bishop of Vienna....
