I saw Jesse in the 60's with Taj he was excellent. Don't forget Redbone, Buffy-St Marie, Marty Robbins, Oscar Pettiford, The Ventures Nokie Edwards, Elvis Presley, Wayne Newton many more.

I saw this film in the US on a one night only showing two years ago. There are plenty of rock'n'rollers and jazz stars who have Native American ancestry. The whole band of Blackfoot for instance. They scored big hits in 1979 and the early 80s with 'Highway Song', 'Fly away', and of course 'Train' with that killer harmonica!
