A number of questions were used as thinking starters for the panel in advance of this discussion, in such a brief time they could not all be explored in any depth if at all. We would welcome any responses or thoughts to these using the ‘comment / reply’ link or box at the end of this text. You might also like to read the texts that were used or referred to in the discussion, by Dr Martin Luther King (at the 1964 Berlin Jazz Festival), Janine Irons (MD of Dune Records), and Dr Jason Toynbee who is leading the Black British Jazz Research Project – at www.liftingthelid.org/2011/07/jazz-roots-relevance-links-and-texts . Once the video is edited it may encourage further debate, but for now these questions (or your own?) may help stimulate further thoughts:
