They think one's playing melody, one's paying harmony, and the other's playing percussion.

In New York City, an out of work jazz drummer named Ed was thinking of throwing himself off a bridge. But then he ran into a former booking agent who told him about the fantastic opportunities for drummers in Iraq.

The agent said "If you can find your way over there, just take my card and look up the bandleader named Faisal--he's the large guy with the beard wearing gold pajamas and shoes that curl up at the toes."

Ed hit up everyone he knew and borrowed enough to buy transport to Iraq. It took several days to arrange for passport, visas, transportation into Iraq and the shipping of his equipment, but he was finally on his way. Ed arrived in Baghdad and immediately started searching for Faisal.

He found guys in pajamas of every color but gold. Finally, in a small coffeehouse, he saw a huge man with a beard--wearing gold pajamas and shoes that curled up at the toes! Ed approached him and asked if he was Faisal. He was. Ed gave him the agent's card and Faisal's face brightened into a huge smile. "You're just in time--I need you for a gig tonight. Meet me at the market near the mosque at 7:30 with your equipment."

"But," gasped Ed, "what about a rehearsal?"

"No time--don't worry." And with that, Faisal disappeared.

Ed arrived in the market at 7:00 to set up his gear. He introduced himself to the other musicians, who were all playing instruments he had never seen in his life.

At 7:30 sharp, Faisal appeared and hopped on the bandstand, his gold pajamas glittering in the twilight. Without a word to the musicians, he lifted his arm for the downbeat.

"Wait." shouted Ed.
"What are we playing?"

Faisal shot him a look of frustration and shouted back, "Fake it! Just give me heavy afterbeats on 7 and 13."

Once upon a time Art Thieme was on his way to a gig when he heard a strange noise under the hood.

He slowed down and the noise stopped, so okay he thought, but then cars were passing him and he was worried about going so slow.

On his CB, it them days, he picked up a conversation and it turned out to be Al and Bobby Unser who were right on his rear and late for their next race.

Art picks up the mic, explains his problem and asks why they don't pass.

They respond that they tend to drive cautiously because public roads are so scary; and rarely pass, preferring not to draw attention or send a bad messages to their fans.

Then, they offered to help.

At the next rest stop Al checks under the hood and discovers a package of pastrami causing the problem.

Art, it turned out, put it there to heat for lunch and had forgot about it.

So he sang a few tunes and they all enjoyed sandwiches and then headed back to the road.

They waved so long as they pulled out passing Art who was still packing up his guitar.

Out on the highway Art picks up a new conversation and recognizes the voices . . .

"That Thieme fellow's okay; can't say much for his pastrami, but as a folksinger, he's unserpassed. Ohhhhhhnoooooo!!!!!! punsterpunishment

True story: At a jazz gig one evening, during a break, a cowboy-looking guy with slicked hair, Levi's, fringed leather jacket and boots comes up to the bandstand carrying a guitar case and asks if he can sit in. The piano player/bandleader isn't too enthused and sort of sneers down his nose at the guy. He tells him, "We don't play much Country!"

Well, it's a slow evening and there aren't more than a dozen people in the place so the other bandmembers prevail upon the bandleader to let the guy play. The piano player grudgingly agrees. Well, the guitar player plays like Joe Pass! Absolutely cuts the piano player and plays him under the table. The rest of the band members are having a great time playing with a great musician when, after about three tunes, he makes a move to get up and put his guitar away to leave. "Why do you wanna leave?" the piano player asks. "I guess you'all don't play much jazz, either!"

Then he announced the first act and two guys came up with African drums.

The drummer in a moderately successful rock band is feeling fed up. He's making as much money as the rest of the guys but nobody notices him behind all those cymbals and things. So he's getting no groupie action.

Determined to change this, he marches into a shop. 'Gimme a red vintage Strat, the biggest Marshall stack you've got and a couple of dozen of those effects things,' he demands.

'What do you want all that for, you're a drummer aren't you?' says the shopkeeper.

'How did you know that?' says the drummer.

'This is a greengrocers!' says the shopkeeper.

Nice story about Duke Ellington and Fletcher Henderson, conductor of another big band and greatest competitor to the duke:

On evening Duke Ellington found that he had by accident accepted two engagements in two cities, distance some hundred miles. Fletcher Henderson saved the day: Duke Ellington played with Henderson's orchestra, Fletcher Henderson conducted Duke Ellington's orchestra, so both dance halls were satisfied.

Afterwards everyone said Duke Ellington's orchestra had been better than ever this evening...

another nice little story is about dizzy gillespie. He started as a jazz drummer, but decided to change the instrument. The reason: everytime the gig was over and he had stowed away the drum set, the other band members had allready engaged with the beauties and he stayed alone that night.

I went to a party the other day, but got very drunk and left my banjo behind.

The following day I called round to retrieve the banjo, but couldn't remember which house the party had been in. I knew which street, and the fact that the toilet was golden, so I started knocking on doors.

'Do you have a golden toilet?' I asked each householder.

After three unsuccessful attempts to find my beloved banjo, I met with this response:

Okay, here's another joke about brass players...

So one night, this girl goes out with a Trumpet player.
She gets home, she says goodbye, she goes inside, and her roommate asks her how her date went.
She says: "Oh, I had a good time."
"So are you going out with him tomorrow?"
"No."
"Why not?"
"Well, he really couldn't kiss and he thought he was like, soooo good, you know?"


So the next night, she goes out with a Tuba player.
She gets home, she says goodbye, she goes inside, and her roommate asks her how her date went.
She says: "Oh, I had a good time."
"So are you going out with him tomorrow?"
"No."
"Well, why not?"
"Oh, those thick, floppy lips! Ugh! He totally slobbered all over me, it was disgusting!"


So the next night, she goes out with a Trombone player.
She gets home, she says goodbye, she goes inside, and her roommate asks her how her date went.
She says: "Oh, I had a great time."
"So are you going out with him tomorrow?"
"Um, well, no."
"Oh, let me guess, he couldn't kiss, right?"
"Well, actually, that part of it was okay, but, I don't know, well, it, um, he wasn't that great, yaknowwhatimean?"


So the next night, she goes out with a French Horn player.
She gets home, she says goodbye, she goes inside, and her roommate asks her how her date went.
She says: "Oh, I had a good time."
The roommate gets to the point:
"So could the guy kiss or not?"

"Well, he wasn't any better than anybody else,
but I *loved* the way he held me."


This is my second favorite Brass joke,
my third favorite is the one that ends with "the Horn player IS God."
But I think that one would be egotistical. (sp?)
(Not to mention waaayyyy too long to type today. Me tired.)

Here's a truly musical joke, about a musician, and I will tell you how to tell it, but to work it has to be heard rather than read. OK?
There's this brilliant perfectionist clarinet player, part of a combo, and he and the rest of the band are playing the rooftop garden or a really fancy French bistro in Paris.
After a while someone in the restaurant starts a challenge: they name a tune and the band plays it. If they succeed, he buys a round, if they fail, they have to quit playing.
Well, the clarinetist is carrying them. Guy names a tune, he immediately starts to play it (you can provide some cues here, like "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes'; name it and then sing it).
Then the guy says "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", and the clarinetist launches into it, but when he hits the bridge, he locks. Total blank. He absolutely cannot remember the bridge. The guy smirks. Clarinetist starts again (you sing it here). Once again freezes on the bridge. (you stop at that point, stumped). "All right," he shouts, "I'll get it right or I'll kill myself!" (sing it again, stop at the bridge [the bridge starts with the "Where troubles melt like lemon drops"] after a pause, scream). The clarinet player throws down his instrument, tears across the dining area, and flings himself over the edge of the roof. He drops 15 stories, and hits the pavement, and as he is lying there, dying, the last thing he hears is the ambulance coming. (imitate the sound of a french ambulance: the intervals are the same as the beginning of the bridge).
Blessings,
Barbara

A true tale: Mozart and Hayden(sp?) were great friends who liked to play jokes on each other when they were able to meet. Once Mozart handed Hayden some music to play. The right hand came to a high chord, the left hand came to a low one, and there was a middle C to be played as well. Hayden stopped, unable to see how to play it, so Mozart showed him how. When Mozart came to that passage he swooped down and played the middle C with his nose. Later, when they were laughing about it Hayden said "But with your nose it looks easy."

At the very last minute, a guy is looking for some musicians to play his New Year's Eve party. Everyone is booked...except for a duo: an accordionist and banjo player. In desperation, he books them. On New Year's Eve, the duo walks into the room, instruments in hand. Everyone is prepared for the worst New Year's Eve ever. However, much to everyone's surprise, the duo turns out to be a great hit.

At the end of the evening the host asks if he can book them for next New Year's Eve. "Sure, great," the players reply. "Hey," says the banjo player, "can we leave our instruments here?"

As a bodhran player I appreciated the list of bodhran jokes my friend's son had last Whitby - there were over 100 on it already and he was still adding to it. I hate to think how many there will be this year, especially as he plays one too.

It was dress rehearsal night just before the gala first concert of the orchestra's world tour. The conductor raised his baton, fell over in a dead faint and was rushed away to the hospital. As the stunned musicians sat there, the manager said, "Unless one of you can conduct tomorrow, we're ruined and will have to cancel the tour."

The first violist said, "I studied conducting in school if that will help." He took over the rehearsal and went on to conduct the gala concert to the acclaim of the critics and audience. The orchestra left on its tour and received rave reviews where ever it went.

Six weeks later, the conductor had recuperated and rejoined the orchestra. His first act was to stand on the podium and ask the entire orchestra to applaud the violist who had saved the day. He then asked the violist to take his original chair. As the violist sat down, the second violist next to him turned and said, "Where the hell have you been?!"
