The conversation continues with Belafonte talking about his album, "Belafonte Sings of the Caribbean". The songs, explained Belafonte, were both reflections of his childhood and things he was exposed to as an adult. Belafonte believed both Louis Armstrong and Jack Teagarden played important roles in jazz music.
