St. Lucia Jazz Festival - Herbie Hancock

Thad Jones & Mel Lewis - The Groove Merchant (1968)Jones, Mel L

So the bass videos were going very well, but I knew I had to post this video, so I'm apologize to any bass players for not keeping the theme going. This video does have a very nice upright solo though! Oh, and yes, this is the answer to the last post...

Great musician jokes

Hey guys,

Just found some great musician jokes you might get a kick out of.

A young child says to his mother, "Mom, when I grow up I'd like to be a musician." She replies, "Well honey, you know you can't do both."

Q: What do you call a beautiful woman on a trombonist's arm?
A: A tattoo.

Q: What's the difference between a banjo and an onion?
A: Nobody cries when you chop up a banjo.

Q: What's the similarity between a drummer and a philosopher?
A: They both perceive time as an abstract concept.

Q: What is the difference between a drummer and a vacuum cleaner?
A: You have to plug one of them in before it sucks.

Q: What's the difference between a folk guitar player and a large pizza?
A: A large pizza can feed a family of four.

Q: Why do clarinetists leave their cases on the dashboard?
A: So they can park in the handicapped zones.

Q: What’s the definition of perfect pitch?
A: When you toss a banjo in the garbage and it hits an accordion.

Q: How do you get a clarinetist out of a tree?
A: Cut the noose

Q: How do you get a three piece horn section to play in tune?
A: Shoot two of therm.

Q: How many vocalists does it take to screw in a bulb?
A: None. They hold the bulb over their head and the world revolves around them.

Q: How many drummers does it take to screw in a bulb?
A: None, they have machines for that now.

Q: How are trumpet players like pirates?
A: They're both murder on the high Cs.

Welcome to the Blog!

Hey Everyone,

This is a brand new blog  designed for jazz videos. Let me explain what its idea is all about. I want this to be a place where  jazz musicians and enthusiasts can post videos they’ve discovered, and which they enjoy.
If you are interested in posting a video, simply comment on this post and I will watch it and put it up if I like it.

This is not a site for every jazz video ever made. As you check it out, you will find that we post only the best videos by the jazz greats. I think you won’t be disappointed with our selections.

Thanks for checking it out!
