Hoopla is incredible. It took me a while to realize that the jazz section was so deep. There is a whole history of the music now available. It covers it all. Old music I'd forgotten but that was instrumental in my development. I started going through what was available and I never actually got to the bottom. What joy, what amazement and wonderment. Then there are all the rest. WOW HEY THANKS
