Friday Wisdom – Jazz

We went to see a jazz concert last night so a few jazzy funnies popped into my head:

How do you get a jazz musician off your porch? Pay for the pizza.

The difference between a rock guitarist and a jazz guitarist is that the rock guitarist plays 3 cords for 1,000 people while the jazz guitarist plays 1,000 cords for 3 people.

The difference between a jazz musician and a large pizza is that the pizza can feed a family of four.

How did the jazz singer end up with 1 million dollars? She inherited 2 million dollars.

My doctor says jazz is in my blood – she said I have a deep vein trombonses.

A lawyer wanted to join a jazz band, but they said he didn’t have any soul.

Smooth jazz puts me to sleep … must be the mellow tonin’.

Farmers are now playing smooth jazz for their corn — it’s easy on the ears.

Jazz is the most common music to get couples “in the mood” because it’s so saxxy.

A bus full of jazz players broke down on the freeway. Police are reporting a massive jam.

My parents didn’t let me listen to classical or jazz when I was a kid. They said it had too much sax and violins …

  1. Massive jam! Though the last one is a close second. I think I liked the image of these musicians having been in an accident, but spending the time waiting to be picked up playing their instruments. That’s a happy thought.

    I’ve always liked jazz and I’ve just discovered the recording of various artists in the 1920s. That’s all from watching Ken Burns!

    “Sax and violins” is my favorite. Very good list. It is nice to hear that you’re finding music venues and outlets accessible to you in a new home, and post-lockdown. Hope you can find a nice way to celebrate the 4th.
