Hi. I'm 20 and I'll second the Big Band vote. Just make sure you
throw in 30's and 40's Big Band also. But that's just me. My tastes in
music are a little weird for someone my age. Heck, in high school when
my music teacher told the class to bring in an example of music to
demonstrate monophony, homophony and polyphony, I brought in "Bach Goes
To Town" by Benny Goodman. Well, the teacher loved it. :-)
