Video and Pics are now posted for the recent Great Jazz Safari and Jamison Gigs.
A ukulele player and his wife were woken at 3 o’clock in the morning by loud knocking on the door.
The ukulele player got up, went to the door and found a banjo player standing in the pouring rain.
“I need a push”, said the banjo player.
“Not a chance”, said the ukulele player, “it’s 3 o’clock in the morning”, slammed the door and went back to bed.
“Who was that?” asked his wife.
“Just some banjo player bloke asking for a push”, he answered.
“Did you help him?”, she asked.
“No, I did not, it’s 3 o’clock in the morning and it’s pouring rain outside” he said.
“Well, …. you have a short memory”, said the wife, “don’t you remember, about three months ago when we broke down, and those two nice young men helped us?. I think you should help him and you should be ashamed of yourself”.
The ukulele player does as he’s told, gets dressed, and goes out into the pouring rain.
He called out into the dark night, “Hello, are you still there?”.
“Yes” comes back the answer.
“Do you still need a push?”, called the ukulele player.
“Yes please”, came the reply from the dark.
“Where are you?”, asked the ukulele player.
The banjo player replied, “Over here on the swing”.

Featuring a new website Jazz Ramble which has been added to the sidebar links to the right….
“My name is Jane La Scala. I’m a retired librarian and jazz fan (fanatic, freak, whatever), living in Melbourne, Australia.
Jazz Ramble is about Australian traditional jazz – those who made it or are currently making it, their music, the “second liners” or serious followers and supporters of jazz in this country, the venues where you can hear live jazz played, where you can buy recordings, and jazz clubs for getting together to enjoy jazz in the company of people who share your obsession. Along the way there will be rambles into the roots and other flowerings of jazz, both where it all began in America, and how it has developed in Australia.”
