The Perception of "Evilness" in East German Music in the United States AMYM. PUETT During the Cold War era from 1945 to 1989, there was an under- lying notion in the US that the political ideologies of socialism and communism 1 should be avoided at all costs and were a threat to democracy.

ethnomusicologist John Blacking1 – regarding his experience of mu- sic in South Africa — suggested that music very often has a sense of where things are going politically, before the politics get hardened. This implies that creative people of ten have a presentiment about the situation of which they are not fully aware.

Conover’s own words and actions paint a picture of a man who loved jazz and wanted to share it, boundaries notwithstanding. As he had earlier assisted in the racial integration of the Washington DC club scene during the late 1940s (Conover, CD 1, Track 2), he showed a lifelong disdain for arbitrary conditions that separated people with a common passion for music, whether it be the color of one’s skin or geopolitical situations.
