This week I visited a couple of 55-plus RV parks down here in Tucson. I was even invited to join a jam session of a trailer park band -- quite an honor given that I am only 44 years old.
The drummer was off playing baseball so the tempo sometimes lagged, but otherwise, the 1940s and 1950s big band classics such "String of Pearls" were entirely recognizable.
Other songs, such as "The Birth Of Jazz," we're new to me, so I just sat back and listened.
