I've linked to all three bass bags now, but only God knows why!

Hi all,
I've just added links to all three of Richard's Bass Bags. Following the three bass bags gives one the feeling of sifting through sand, it's like going to see a jazz group where everyone solos on every tune. Okay, we've just had the trombone solo, now here's the guitar again, and here comes the piano solo. Personally, I think that jazz has run out of ideas. Richard needs to experience the thrill of being part of a forty or fifty piece ensemble. Oh, hang on, I forgot that he probably couldn't read the parts. He'd be standing in the bass section and trying to make things up! How charming, he'd be playing his own little parts, he'd be improvising! Well, how clever is that?

    He's been playing with those for years

  4. Rich,
    I don't think it's very funny to make fun of an older person's bladder problem.
    Maybe you can keep those types of remarks for your own multiple blogs? I'd appreciate you not saying things like that here.

  5. Hey Dave,
    I've just been looking at the Southern Sinfonia's web site and there's no mention of you being one of the bassists. Why's that?

  6. Rich,
    Yeah, good point. I noticed that myself and have asked management to update the site. You know what IT people are like, they take ages to get anything done.

  7. Or maybe you're just not in the orchestra?

  8. Rich,
    Now you're back to your old silly ways. Please understand that I really don't want you clowning around here. Discussion closed.
