Dixieland Jazz Every Saturday – Will it ever be back? Not likely!


1:30 to 4:30??????????


It still is the best music anywhere!


HELLO 2021!!!!


WE’VE ALMOST MADE IT!!


 IT STILL WORKS. MY COMPUTER, THAT IS.


I HAVEN’T USED IT FOR AWHILE, BUT WHILE “MOLLY MAID” IS BUSY CLEANING UP OUR UPSTAIRS, I THOUGHT I WOULD DROP YOU A NOTE.


I ACTUALLY KEEP “MY OFFICE” IN THE LIVING ROOM WHERE I HAVE MY CELL PHONE, THE HOUSE PHONE, THE TV REMOTE, A NOTE PAD, PEN AND PENCIL, MY TABLET, THE DAILY NEWSPAPER, A BOOK, “HOME TO HEART” MEAL PLANNER, NAIL CLIPPERS, BACK SCRATCHER,  PEANUTS AND JU JUBES. WHY WOULD I MOVE?


I HOPE EVERYONE IS DOING WELL AND YOU ARE FINDING WAYS TO GET THROUGH THIS TERRIBLE TIME WE ARE IN. IT SURELY IS NOT FUN BUT SOME HOW WE ARE MANAGING TO DEAL WITH ALL OF THE NEGATIVE THINGS IN THIS WORLD TODAY.


NANCY AND I DO A LOT OF PUZZLES, WATCH A BIT OF TV, BUT REALLY LIKE TO GO ONTO “YOU TUBE” OR “YOU TUBE MUSIC” AND LISTEN TO MANY OF OUR MUSICIANS PERFORM. THAT IS USUALLY THE HIGHLIGHT OF OUR DAYS – WITH A LIBATION THROWN IN, OF COURSE. IT IS NICE TO HEAR THEM BUT IT SURE DOESN’T MAKE UP FOR SEEING AND HEARING THEM IN PERSON. WE MISS ALL OF YOU MUSICIANS AND FANS.


I KEEP IN TOUCH WITH MY FAMILY EVERY DAY THRU “GROUP MESSENGER” AND THAT IS FUN AND REWARDING. THEY ALL LOOK FORWARD TO MY MORNING “MESSAGE” OF INSPIRATION??? AND ENCOURAGEMENT??, AND IT ALLOWS ME TO COMMUNICATE WITH THEM, ESPECIALLY MY GRANDAUGHTER, NICOLE, WHO GIVES UPDATES ABOUT MY GREAT GRANDSON, MICHAEL. HE IS ALMOST 8 MONTHS OLD ALREADY AND IS STARTING TO PLAY THE DRUMS. LOOK OUT GLENN, JOHN, JAMIE.


TIMES WILL GET BETTER EVENTUALLY. KEEP WELL. BE SAFE.


HOW ABOUT A LITTLE SMILE TO MAKE THE DAY BETTER


SOME DRUMMERS HAVE ARRIVED AT A JOB, OPENED THEIR TRAP CASES AND DISCOVERED THEY FAILED TO PACK THE SNARE DRUMS OR THE CYMBALS. EVEN MORE PITIFUL IS THE TRAVELLING DRUMMER WHO GETS TO THE JOB AND FINDS THAT THE AIRLINE HAS SENT HIS DRUMS TO SOME OTHER CITY. ONE DRUMMER PILED HIS DRUMS ON THE SCALE AT THE AIRLINE COUNTER IN NEW YORK AND SAID TO THE CLERK “I’M FLYING TO LOS ANGELES. I WANT THE SQUARE CASE TO GO TO DENVER, AND THE TWO ROUND CASES TO GO TO SEATTLE.” “I’M SORRY SIR BUT WE CAN’T DO THAT.” “WHY NOT? YOU DID IT LAST TIME.”


 


THE JAZZ CLUB’S FUTURE??


WHO KNOWS?


WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING, THE WEARING OF MASKS, AND ALL THE PROTECTIVE HEALTH REQUIREMENTS THAT WE MUST USE, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO SAY WHEN, OR EVEN ‘IF’, WE WILL EVER BE BACK TOGETHER TO ENJOY THE MUSIC WE HAVE ENJOYED FOR SO MANY YEARS.


ALL WE CAN DO IS WAIT AND SEE, BUT MY FEELING IS, IT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE NEAR FUTURE - ONE DAY, WEEK, MONTH, YEAR??? AT ANY TIME?


WE CAN ONLY HOPE.


BE SAFE. KEEP WELL. LOOK AFTER YOUR FRIENDS.


KEEP YOUR CHIN UP AND YOUR POWDER DRY
