All of whom could qualifymust, presumably, by their categorizationas "rogue artists." The word refers to a vagrant or dishonest person, but could also refer to the members of the British colonies rebelling against King George or the leaders of the French revolution or the organizers of the Underground Railroad. Or perhaps simply those committed to their art despite the dictates of the market.
"Jazz is not only the music of African Americans," Dorbon said. "It is the music of any people who had to struggle to be themselves, to free themselves. It is not by chance that a gypsy who lived in France, Django Reinhardt, selected jazz as a means of expression. It is not by chance that jazz welcomed the gypsy musicians. In a certain way, all the musicians who selected jazz to tell what they have to say, wherever they originally came from, never found a place in the economic and political systems imposed on them. 'RogueArt' is a natural name for a label that provides shelter for music that is outside the mainstream."
