Polly-Vous Francais

"Finally Beiderbecke took out a silver cornet. He put it to his lips and blew a phrase. The sound came out like a girl saying 'yes'."

Or maybe a Chorus saying 'yes'...

Brendan Wolfe

The sweetest sound there is, trust me.

Thanks for stopping by, Polly. Hope to see you soon . . .

About the Banner

  • The banner image is a detail from Grant Wood’s “Young Corn.” Now owned by the Cedar Rapids (Iowa) Community School District, it was painted in 1931: the same year Bix Beiderbecke died and a year after Wood painted “American Gothic.”

So Sayeth Snoop

  • “But I somehow, some way, keep coming up with funky-ass shit, like, every single day.”

So Sayeth Merle

  • “We don’t make a party out of lovin’.”

So Sayeth Aldous

  • “Nobody can make a habit of self-exhibition, nobody can exploit his personality for the sake of exercising a kind of hypnotic power over others, and remain untouched by the process.”

So Sayeth Van

  • “Gonna put on my hot pants and promenade down funky broadway ’til the cows come home.”

So Sayeth Bob

  • Oh, my name it ain’t nothin’. / My age it means less. / The country I come from / is called the Midwest.
