'self as follows:
"Does Jazx Belong to Art?'
(asks George Gershwin, the jazz
ecmposer, in the July issue of
"Singing." the musical magazine.
Jas ,the foremost writer of synco

f serious appraisal of the jazz con
' "No student of singing can af
Iford any longer to ignore jazz mu-
sic." declares Mr. Gershwin, "or
to" sniff Rt It as a thing of low
estate and negative cultural value.
The study and practice of jazz has
. a. .very important contribution to
make toward the complete train-
ing of any modern disciple of the
t musical art. It canbe of positive
benefit to the vocalist In every de-
