An example is the listing for Oklahoma City, population & historical data, musician Jimmy Rushing, and a concise jazz history of the city at its heyday from 1900 until after World War II. The same insightful treatment is given to other cities such as Tulsa and its unique blending of jazz, pop, and country influences.
