All the musicians and vocalists given individual entries would born before 1920. Only musicians born or raise in the USA are included in this volume. Some musicians born before 1920 I deliberately excluded, on the grounds that most of their professional successes occurred after the demise of "Swing Street"." -- from the introduction page 9.
