    Current Earworm...

    Rodgers & Hart - " Lover " -from the 1932 film " Love Me Tonight " , because it is the last track on Dodo Marmarosa's album which I played this morning , where the tune is retitled as " Cosmo Street ". The 1947 recording ( album title " Dodo Marmarosa " ) was the first to feature jazz 'cello by bassist Harry Babasin . A catchy choon . Pizz cello solo at 2:17

    Your Worst Gig Ever

    Just remembered playing my Rhodes solo at a birthday party in a marquee when a group of uninvited surfers appeared and let all the ropes down so it collapsed into the centre . I had to crawl out . Afterwards people would remark how my singing had really brought the house down !

    I wouldn't be confused or dazed if JPJ played it with his feet before getting a bass at 14 .

    George Shearing turned " Mack The Knife " from an uptempo swing tune to a haunting ballad in the relative minor .
