At my age it is disappointing to see all these writers' names and yet they fail to make mention of a jazz vocal group,self sustaining wh have evolved for the the last 50 and with thecurrent line up (Group 21) have just won the Downbeat Award for vcocal group for the year 2000. (Check out Dec.edition); and your writers mentioned it not. By and large the new stuff is only great if it can weather time. The harmony of this group has weathered 50 years of continous effort; yet today they are comprised of 3 20+ and 1 40+ aged vocalists who do their own jazz accompanyment. Try the Gold Record label and listen to something really good and timeless.
