Well, Hey Mary,
Where ya' been? That's an interesting site, U of A, sqirrel city, but you'll like David M. Newell's book "If Nothin Don't Happen" better because
you'll, well it's kind of like music, if you have to read to play, you don't know how to play. Once I thought it was good if you could play
someone else's solo, until a real musician asked "why would you want to do that"? Of course that wasn't Charlie Parkerthat said that to me, but
he did know and admire him. Anyway, as you say, go figure?
I guess I owe johncodie for stirring up my interest in The Old South, what with his insistence on referring back to the way way things used to
be, they ought' still be that away. Can you say something rude to Ridge, just for kicks?
