Mercer Ellington has stated that Juan Tizol conceived the melody to "Caravan" in 1936 as a result of his days studying music in Puerto Rico, where they couldn't afford much sheet music so the teacher would turn the music upside down after they had learned to play it right-side up. This "inversion" technique led to a modal sound throughout Tizol's work - wikipedia entry for "modal jazz"

First, an "Acoustic Blues Summit" at the Royal Room on September 22, 7:30, with some familiar names/faces for people who've attended the Port Townsend workshop:

Second, Jim Kweskin and Meredith Axelrod doing a late afternoon show on Sept 28 -- 5 pm -- also at the Royal Room

Third, the next day, Sept 29, Jim and Meredith move from Seattle south to Seattle north for a 7 pm show at the Phinney Center:

And a reminder that Del Rey will be doing a show at Couth-Buzzard Books in the Greenwood District starting at 7:30 on October 11, sponsored by the Pacific Northwest Folklore Society.

One more: Orville Johnson will be sitting in with an acoustic jump blues band called the Jump Monkeys at Couth-Buzzard, September 27, 7:30. Two band members are recent Port Townsend Workshop participants.

Wow, fat city for acoustic blues in the Seattle area for the next week or two! Support these musicians if you can.
