Why do we have a track artist when the recording artist and composer are sufficient?
Half the “Classical” CDs I look at on MusicBrainz (incorrectly) show the performer as the track artist, and, half show the composer. Why do we have an option to manually override either, rather than the database choosing to display the classic recording composer or performer (if non classical)?
The only place I see that the track artist may differ from the recording artist/composer, is on the CD itself, where some artists chose to credit the composer(s) of their tracks, and some compilations chose to credit the performers, but this information preference is not recorded anywhere.
Is Jazz considered classical, should I be replacing track artists with recording composers?
