    This video shows why I could never play Jazz. It's just waaaaaay over my head.



    Too deep for me.

    Thanks Dreads.

    It's a very humbling video. I've been playing bass for 40 years (mostly classic rock covers), but that jazz stuff is on a whole 'nother level.

    That part where the trumpet player said "tune???....this is jazz!" just blew me away.

    Maybe if I changed my name to "Clam" I might stand a better chance of comprehending this stuff.

    The Dizzy Gillespie spoofer was scary . . .
    Backing that up would have to be a paid gig . . . :D

    Yeah, that's a classic

    I love how Mark King really got the maximum mileage out of his 'testimony' :p
