the couple who like jazz


Cynthia arrived home as I was listening to “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat”.

“Mingus?”, she wondered aloud.

“Jeff Beck,” I gently corrected her.

“What a perfect beginning to an amazing evening!”

“I somehow thought you’d say that.”

“It was first on Charles Mingus’ ‘Ah Um’, I reminded her. “Then Jeff Beck recorded it on ‘Blow By Blow’ sixteen years later.

We sat back, drank gallons of black coffee, and relaxed.

Quiet simple conversation and jazz filled the room.

Just then she looked at her computer’s screensaver.

“Let’s listen to Miles Davis’ “On Green Dolphin Street,” she recommended.

“They’re black whales,” I joked.
