    I wish I was in LA. I am a very immature old man and I have been playing that music for quite a few decades and, might I add, very immaturely. Sorry...

    Maybe they occasionally have performances where they would need your level of maturity Jim. It’d probably be worth it for them to fly you in. And you’d be happy to play all night and eat lots of spaghetti bolognese. (Delicious)

    I learned a lot of my immature style of playing from Harpo and Chico Marx.
