Speaking of Jimi Hendrix; anybody know his connection to the show Law & Order?











Mariska Hargitay, who plays Olivia Benson, is the daughter of bodybuilder Mickey Hargitay and '50s blond bombshell, Jayne Mansfield, who, as her film career waned in the early '60s did some sound studio work with Hendrix.

Hey cats, I'm gigging tomorrow in Toronto - trombone and piano.

12 bar jazz blues in C:

C7 ...... F7 ...... C7 ...... C7
| \ \ \ \ | \ \ \ \ | \ \ \ \ | \ \ \ \ |

F7 ...... F dim ... C7 Bb7 A7
| \ \ \ \ | \ \ \ \ | \ \ \ \ | \ \ \ \ |

D7 ...... G7 ...... C7 . A7 .D7 . G7
| \ \ \ \ | \ \ \ \ | \ \ \ \ | \ \ \ \ ||

Don't forget to throw in all those 9ths and blues notes like the flattened third, the fourth and the augmented fourth, and of COURSE the 7th, or it just ain't blue.

And Anders - the blues is a singular word. Sheesh.
