NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #266 ~ 04-17-21]

Although the white beat’s attraction to the jazz world is often the very core of his “white Negro” role, there is little uniquely “beat” about all this. Such involvement is socially not very different from the relationship of adolescent whites to Negro jazz in several American non-beat and pre-beat bohemias. For example, nearly twenty years ago…we often used to make the Harlem “balcony scenes” – boosting old Bessie Smiths and Hot Fives from the balcony of the Rainbow Music Shop before the wartime scrap drive wrecked the supply, going wild in the Apollo Theatre’s sweet-smelling second balcony – odoriferous from pomade and pot, though we didn’t know about the latter at the time – to a Basie-Millinder twin bill. And we traveled Swing Street when it still swung (where half the time we’d get kicked out despite our borrowed I.D.’s), to hear Billie Holiday at the Onyx Club or Tatum at the Three Deuces… But apart from the music itself, and the fact that now one merely listens to it at Birdland instead of stomping to it at the Savoy, not much has really changed.
