    Boyo is headed to a Jazz jam, lots of College kids but also regular jazzers. I asked him how he was feeling about going to the jam. We were messaging back and forth as usual.

    Boyo:
    Terrified

    Because

    I don't know if i'm gonna know a tune they call

    Dado
    yeah
    Collin
    scary

    Dado
    can you just scream and run if they call something you don't know?

    Boyo

    Dont know

    Dado
    if you are fast enough they can't stop you
    Boyo

    lolol

    He can find the one. Collin is gifted. Don't tell him I said that.

    I really really want to hear the septet that he is working with at school. That's a big enough band to raise the roof.

    Hanging out playing some and watching, listening, learning and enjoying the night is a great feeling. Glad he had a good time!

    Me too, given his vocational choices.....

    He was with other players from his program that have been attending the jam regularly so I would think that would make it all more fun and less terrifying.

    One other thing. I've never been someone that took pics when I was out doing stuff. And I've often wished I'd made some kind of visual record now. Not a big thing, but decades from now it'll maybe be nice to look back on and enjoy.

    OMG apparently all the Proffs and all the students refer to people as "cats." :D

    Would have though that had died out.

    I agree. At this point it's a matter of whether people bother to move their pics from phone to comp and back them up and print.

    I only have a very limited number of pictures from my early years - I wish I had been more serious about documenting my life.

    I even wished I'd have kept my gig calendars since 1972.

    Nope. It's in the lexicon of jazz.

    I had some cool cats that were nice to me when I were a lad. I enjoyed the "cats."

    I've been "that 'cat' with the ...whatever" ...more times than I can count. And I've known what a googolplex is since the 70's, so I can count pretty high.
    Of course there have been the times when it been "that cat who can't count"...so, yeah tell boyo the guy who sent him that disk of fakebooks has been where he is and...I'm still here to tell the tale.

    So there's that.

    Yep. I think he feels pretty comfortable among the cats.
