    Korgsp,

    In CB (civilian band, two way) radio speak here in the US, a person, would say, "What's your 20?"

    That is code for, "What is your location?"

    The USA is a very young country . I would say that (arguably) Jazz and Blues are the closest thing to being the only truly “American” music we have. It is deeply rooted in our history and culture (which, by definition is multicultural). And, as a result, it speaks to everone - no matter the country.

    True Brian, but both (more so Blues than Jazz) have a deep African musical roots born out of the slave era in America. Lots and lots and lots of books on Jazz / Blues and their origins.
