Trad Jazz: and it’s goodbye from her

Daddy, who’s Awtly?

She’s Ottilie Patterson, Rufe; long before you were born she recorded Lawdy Lawdy Blues.

Liked that; ‘t’else, Dad?

Here’s three I like, young man: Beale St. Blues, Jailhouse Blues, T’aint No Sin.

Really, Dad! ‘course a river is wet, even Julia next door knows that. Can we dance ’round in our bones?

What, you and Julia?

Naaaah, girls are soppy. I’ll dance in my bones with Mum.

Talking of Mum, this is one of her favourites: Careless Love.

Actually, why not call Mum through? We can do a smoochy dance to Squeeze Me.

Uuuuugh! Just you two, Daddy. Not me.

Can we do a family caper now, Dad?

Stranger things have happened, Rufe.

    I liked all of hers you’ve included but particularly the last number [of course].

    Excellent – I do like Ottilie. No favourites, enjoyed them all.

    Maybe Careless Love.
