Why am I so nervous for Jackie tonight? I know that she will have them in the palm of her hand. This is however perhaps one of the most upscale audience that she has played for. Oh, well this is just me being me. I have GAD anyhow. Can't wait to hear the reaction tomorrow. Are the performers at the Carlyle reviewed in the NY papers? Hoping for a good review.

10 straight shows in New York, music critics attending, a debut in many significant ways...
Are little girl is really all grown up now. It is like she is stepping through a door to even greater things to come. As the old expression goes, "The past is prelude". I hear Frank Sinatra now, "If I can make it there I can make it anywhere. It's up to you New York, New York."
Jazz, with its built-in improvisation, is judged by somewhat different standards. There are lots of very good musicians playing in the genre.
Varnk, whose posts have been discussed on this forum, is also a clarinet player. I wonder what he'd have to say about Woody's clarinet playing.
Ken plays in a non-professional band, I assume as a hobby. He has a degree in music education. I also play clarinet, although not on a regular basis like he does. If you don't want to throw up your hands and give up, don't listen to the clarinet players in the Berlin Philharmonic.
And now, for something completely different...
Wow, this lady Chloe Feoranzo is GOOD. Very talented, both on clarinet & vocally.

If he weren't Woody Allen, nobody would let him on the bandstand and do this:
Clarinet is hard to be really good on, so I shouldn't judge.

Yeah, I usually say if you enjoy making music, have fun and who cares how good you are. And he's 81, at that. I play guitar and harmonica, and I'm probably no better than he is. (But, oh God, I wish and hope and pray I am. )

rickolsen: I'm munching corn chips and watching football. I like corn chips better than potato chips. Phoenix and Sampson are sleeping in on my bed. Brandie is preening herself on the love seat. She will be sleeping soon. I have a good life. I love my cats.

rickolsen: Brandie is sleeping, so all 3 of my cats are sleeping now. I gave them gravy dinner about an hour ago. I'm watching a good football game. Peyton Manning is creaming Arizona. I'm going to eat a couple of cucumbers now. They are so good.

rickolsen: I got some Greek pasta salad, cole slaw, and deviled egg potato salad today. The Greek pasta salad has lots of feta cheese. I love feta cheese. I gave my cats some gravy dinner a while ago. They will be sleeping soon. I'm eating Greek pasta salad.

rickolsen: My cole slaw is gone. I've got half the Greek pasta salad and potato salad left. I'm not supposed to eat pasta or potatoes, but my doctor said I can eat them in moderation. When you are diabetic you can't eat anything good or cheap. I eat what I want.

rickolsen: My cats are all sleeping. Phoenix and Sampson are in on my bed. Brandie is on the loveseat here in the livingroom with me. I'm watching football and munching corn chips. If you like corn chips get Great Value corn chips at Walmart. They are really good.

rickolsen: It is 10:00 am. My cats are all sleeping. Phoenix and Sampson are in on my bed. Brandie is on the love seat. I didn't give them gravy dinner because they didn't ask for it. When they do I will give it to them. I'm watching football.

rickolsen: I just gave my cats some gravy dinner. Prime filet chicken. They like that kind. They are gobbling it down. They will be sleeping soon. I'm watching football.

rickolsen: My brother died yesterday. We weren't close. Now I'm the only son of 4 left. All 3 of my cats are on my desk. They came to see me.
Feb 10, 2020 16:54:26 GMT -5
Willyiam: May your Brother RIP!!
Feb 14, 2020 8:31:08 GMT -5
rickolsen: Thanks. I haven't seen, or spoken to my brother since my biological mother's funeral in 2009. I was adopted and didn't meet my biological family until 20 years ago when I was 44. We were never close. I see my biological father once in awhile.

rickolsen: One of my sisters found me. I didn't go looking for them. My cats are all sleeping. I'm watching football, and I'm hungry, so I'm making a big pot of stew. Of course it has mushrooms and lots of garlic.
Feb 18, 2020 18:37:03 GMT -5
rickolsen: My stew is so good I wish I could share it with you. I'm glad Agog suggested I cook my own food. I'm a good cook, it's cheaper, tastes better, and it's better for you. I love to cook so it works out perfectly.
Feb 18, 2020 18:55:35 GMT -5
rickolsen: I would cook for my cats, but they need cat food from the store. It has all the minerals and nutrients they need including taurin for good health. You should resist the temptation to feed your cat or dog people food. Give them the pet food they need.

rickolsen: All 3 of my cats are in the livingroom with me. Brandie is on the loveseat. Phoenix is on the arm of the arm chair and Sampson is on the couch. Today is trash day. I have to run a few errands and then I'm going to put out my trash.

rickolsen: I just gave my cats some gravy dinner. Chicken, turkey, casserole. They like it. They will be sleeping soon.

nipper: So Jackie's part in Disney dream weddings will air this coming Friday I believe on Disney + channel. Does anyone have that channel? I believe it is an streaming channel!
Feb 23, 2020 8:45:31 GMT -5
nipper: Does anyone have a hunch on what the exciting collaboration Jackie talked about last month that will happen this year?
Feb 23, 2020 8:46:56 GMT -5
johnnyb: Sorry Nipper, Jackie fans have left the building, head over to Jackie Amazon if you want to have a conversation or find some news on Jackie's career. Unfortunately Rick has lost interest in Jackie and now only wants to talk about his cats. 😺
Feb 23, 2020 14:27:13 GMT -5
nipper: I see that. As an Ice breaker should I talk about my cat who died in October?
