.Possibly, but what about George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers,
Loenard Bernstein (West Side Story).

Then there's Hoagy Carmichael, Henry Mancini, Jules Stein, Meredith Wilson
(Music Man), And on and on and on.

Unfortunately all are now dead or retired so what we get is John Cage
without the talent - only the cacophany,
