HI JAZZ FANS

THIS VULGAR VIRUS IS VOLUMINOUS
WE HOPE EVERYONE IS WELL AND SAFE

HERE WE ARE AT WEEK NO. ???, AND DAY NO.??? WITH STILL NO END IN SIGHT.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY THAT WE CAN SAVE THE HUMAN RACE BY LYING - - - IN FRONT OF THE TV.

THIS IS LIKE BEING 16 AGAIN. GAS IS CHEAP AND I’M GROUNDED.

NANCY AND I PLAY THIS FUN GAME DURING QUARANTINE. IT’S CALLED “WHY ARE YOU DOING THAT?” THERE ARE NO WINNERS.

I’M HAVING A QUARANTINE PARTY THIS WEEKEND. NONE OF YOU ARE INVITED.

-         - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

FORTUNATELY, WE STILL HAVE MANY CHOICES FOR GREAT MUSIC AND SEVERAL OF OUR MUSICIAN FRIENDS CONTINUE TO PROVIDE A WEEKLY SHOW ON FACEBOOK THAT KEEPS US IN TOUCH WITH OUR FRIENDS AND THE MUSIC WORLD.

DAVE KOSMYNA’S “SONG OF THE DAY” EVERY DAY IS ALWAYS A TREAT. WITH A REPERTOIRE OF ABOUT 1000 SONGS, DAVE NEVER RUNS OUT OF MATERIAL. OUT OF CURIOSITY I ASKED DAVE LAST WEEK APPROX. HOW LONG IT TAKES HIM TO BLEND 3 0R 4 INSTRUMENTS HE IS PLAYING, PLUS DOING THE VOCAL, INTO ONE SONG, AND HIS ANSWER WAS, “SOMETIMES, HOURS”. THAT’S A LOT OF WORK, BUT A MOST ENJOYABLE RESULT. A COUPLE OF THE SONGS HE PLAYED LAST WEEK WERE, “MANDY, MAKE UP YOUR MIND”, AND “THE ONE I LOVE BELONGS TO SOMEBODY ELSE”. CHECK DAVE OUT. HE’S ON FACEBOOK.

WES LINENKUGEL PRESENTS HIS SHOW WITH “THE HAMMERED DULCIMER” ON TUESDAY NIGHTS FROM TOLEDO AT 8:00pm. THIS UNUSUAL INSTRUMENT IS RARELY SEEN AND IS WELL WORTH WATCHING.

OF COURSE, “RAGTIME RICK” COMES ON AT 8:00pm EVERY WEDNESDAY. LAST WEEK RICK TALKED ABOUT STILL BEING UNDER “HOUSE ARREST” WHILE POLITICIANS AND A FEW OTHER “ESSENTIAL”?? WORKERS, WHO ARE STILL GETTING PAID, TELL US “WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER”. RICK WAS BORN IN BROOKLYN, NY, AND TALKED ABOUT MONDAY BEING “WASH DAY” AND TUESDAY BEING “IRONING DAY”. SOME OF YOU MIGHT REMEMBER THAT. HIS GRANDPA LIKED “WON’T YOU COME HOME BILL BAILEY” WHICH RICK PLAYED WITH ALL OF THE INTRODUCTION, WHICH ONE DOESN’T USUALLY HEAR. “MY MOTHERS EYES” FOR MOTHERS DAY WAS ANOTHER GOOD ONE, PLUS THAT OLD BLISTER “ROLL THE PATROL”.

ROBERTA HUNT WAS ON AT 8:00pm FRIDAY NIGHT AND HAD A GREAT HOUR OF SINGING AND PIANO PLAYING WHICH WAS GREAT TO SEE AND HEAR ONCE AGAIN. WE HAVE BEEN SO BLESSED OVER THE YEARS TO HAVE “THE RED HOT RAMBLE” AND “KREWE DE ROUX”, FEATURING ROBERTA, PLAY AT OUR JAZZ CLUB MANY TIMES. CAN’T WAIT TO GET YOU BACK.

JON SEIGER PERFORMS ON SATURDAYS AT 5:00pm AND HAD A GREAT SHOW AGAIN, ONCE HE GOT THE SOUND FIGURED OUT, THANKS TO ONE OF OUR FANS, DAN RUDOW, WHO SUGGESTED THAT THE VIDEO MAN TAKE HIS FINGER OFF THE SOUND MICROPHONE AND “VOILA”. JON’S SONGS INCLUDED, “KISS TO BUILD A DREAM ON”, “I STILL GET JEALOUS”, “AVALON” AND “SHOW ME THE WAY TO GO HOME” PLUS MANY OTHERS.

AND DON’T FORGET JAMIE & JOY MACPHERSON, KNOWN AS “SIDE BY SIDE”, WHO I’M SURE WILL BE BACK WITH SOME MORE RENDITIONS OF FINE MUSIC.

“THE BIG BUTTER AND EGG MEN”, A RELATIVELY NEW BAND, HAVE JUST RELEASED THEIR FIRST ALBUM WITH SOME FINE JAZZ TUNES. THIS BAND IS LED BY TOM RICHARDS, A FINE TROMBONE PLAYER WHO HAS PERFORMED FOR US SEVERAL TIMES WITH A FEW DIFFERENT BANDS. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PURCHASING THIS NEW CD, AND SUPPORTING THIS GROUP, PLEASE CONTACT TOM AT: Email: tom.insoundmusic@gmail.com AND HE WILL SEND YOU CONTACT INFORMATION. YOUR SUPPORT FOR THIS YOUNG BAND WOULD BE MOST APPRECIATED

AND, THERE IS SO MUCH GREAT MUSIC ON “YOU TUBE”.

 GOTTA GET THIS IN. MY GRANDAUGHTER, NICOLE, CELEBRATED HER FIRST “MOTHERS DAY” WITH MY GREAT GRANDSON, MICHAEL, WHO IS ALREADY A MONTH OLD. HE GAINED ONE lb. AND WEIGHS 8lbs, 10 OUNCES. LIFE IS GOOD.

 HANG IN THERE ALL YOU MUSICIANS. HOPEFULLY, THIS WILL SOON BE OVER AND WE’LL GET YOU ALL BACK TO THE CLUB – MAYBE NOT ALL AT ONCE, BUT WOULD’NT THAT BE A BLAST. WE’LL TRY TO RESTART AS SOON AS WE CAN.   WE MISS ALL OF YOU.

SMILE IT’S GOOD FOR YOU

1.     Our cleaning lady just called and told us she will be working from home now and will send us instructions on what to do.

2.     Due to isolation I finished 3 books yesterday. And believe me, that’s a lot of colouring.

3.     Anyone else getting a tan from the refrigerator?

4.     So, we don’t go to restaurants, kids aren’t signed up for anything, and we just stay home for Spring break. Sounds like my childhood.

NICE FRIENDS

ONE DAY LAST WEEK OUR FRONT DOOR OPENED AS WE SAT IN OUT LIVING ROOM AND THEN IT CLOSED. WHEN I GOT UP TO CHECK, I FOUND A NICE PACKAGE INSIDE THE DOOR. I QUICKLY CAUGHT THE VEHICLE BACKING DOWN THE DRIVEWAY AND DISCOVERED IF WAS OUR FRIEND, HERMAN BEERTHUIS. WE HAD A NICE CHAT, FROM A DISTANCE, AND AFTER HERMAN LEFT WE DISCOVERED SOME VERY NICE LIBATIONS IN THE BAG. THANKS HERMAN.

AND OUR FRIENDS, AND NEIGHBOURS, THE DUBOULAYS, ARE CONTINUALLY DROPPING OFF FRESHLY BAKED MUFFINS, PIES, AND BAKED BREAD. WE’RE NOT SURE WE WANT THE VIRUS TO STOP. JUST KIDDING.

IT’S SO NICE TO HAVE GENEROUS, THOUGHTFUL FRIENDS. THANK YOU FOLKS.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

STAY HOME. STAY STRONG. SAVE LIVES.

 

HELP EACH OTHER ALL YOU CAN. SEE YOU SOON.

Wayne and Nancy
