Tonight’s Friday Night chill is the iconic jazz singer, Peggy Lee. Black Coffee is the first album by Peggy Lee, released in the ten-inch format in 1953 on Decca Records in the United States. I love Lee’s tude and all her come hithering. She is, for me, up there with Billie, Dinah, Sarah and Amy.

Peggy Lee – vocals
Pete Candoli – trumpet
Jimmy Rowles – piano
Max Wayne – bass
Ed Shaughnessy – drums

    Haven’t heard her in a long time. I like some of her music.

    Bill Cosby didn’t rape, or drug anyone. This is an enormous scandal. Look at these creatures who are accusing him. An absolute scandal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qiuNbcZHB-c

    Thanks for this Mrs. Geller, I’m always looking for worthwhile jazz artists to listen to.

    Simple Simon met a pieman, going to the fair.
    Says Simple Simon to the pieman, let me taste your ware.

    Says the pieman to Simple Simon, show me first your penny.
    Says Simple Simon to the pieman, indeed I have not any.

    Simple Simon went a-fishing, for to catch a whale.
    All the water he had got, was in his mother’s pail.

    Simple Simon went to look if plums grew on a thistle.
    He pricked his fingers very much, which made poor Simon whistle.———-
    1. Every night since he was 30 years old Izzy has prayed before bed to win
    the lottery….”Please God, let me win the lottery” he prays. Nothing.
    Next night, “Please God, let me win the lottery” Still nothing. This
    goes on and on for years and years and one night, when Izzy is in his
    80’s…”Please God, let me win the lottery”… God finally says “Izzy,
    meet me half way, buy a ticket!”

    2. An admiral visited one of the ships
    of the line under his command. While eating breakfast with the crew he
    was impressed to see the naval insignia stamped on every biscuit. He
    went to the Chief cook to ask how this feat was done, so it could be
    used on other ships under his command. The Chief replied “I’d be glad
    to share that with you, Admiral. After each biscuit is cut, I just slap
    it here against my belt buckle which bears the Navy insignia”.
    Horrified the Admiral exclaims “That’s very unhygienic!” The Chief
    shrugs and replies “Well, If that’s the way you feel, sir, I suggest
    you avoid the doughnuts.”

    3. A while back, when I was considerably younger, I picked up a lovely
    date at her parents’ home. I’d scraped together some money to take her
    to a fancy restaurant. She ordered the most expensive items on the menu.
    Shrimp cocktail. Lobster Patron. Champagne. I asked her “Does your
    mother feed you like that when you eat at home?” “No ” she replied.
    “but my mother’s not expecting a blow job and a piece of ass tonight.” I
    said “Would you care for dessert?”

    4. A distraught senior citizen phoned her doctor’s office. “Is it true”
    she wanted to know “that the medication you prescribed has to be taken
    for the rest of my life?” “‘Yes, I’m afraid so”‘ the doctor told her.
    There was a moment of silence before the senior lady replied “I’m wondering, then, just how serious is my condition because this prescription is marked ‘NO REFILLS'”…

    5. A blonde is suffering from a sore throat so she goes to see the
    doctor. She explains the problem to the doctor who asks her to sit
    down. He gets out his light and says “Open wide.” “I can’t ” replies
    the blonde. “This chair’s got arms on it.”

    6. A guy walks into a bar and sits down next to the best looking girl in
    the place and starts looking at his watch. The girl notices this and
    asks him if his date is late. “No” he replies “I’ve just got this new state-of-the-art
    watch and I was just about to test it”. “What does it do?” she asked.
    “It uses alpha waves to telepathically talk to me”. “What’s it telling
    you now?” “Well, it says you’re not wearing any panties”. “Ha! Well it
    must be broken then, ‘cos I am!” “Damn thing” the guy says tapping the
    watch “must be an hour fast”.

    7. A Texan buys a round of drinks for all in the bar because, he announces,
    his wife has just gave birth to “a typical Texas” baby boy weighing 25
    pounds. Congratulations resounded. Two weeks later, he returns to the
    bar. The bartender says, “Say, you’re the father of the typical Texas
    baby that weighed 25 pounds at birth. How much does he weigh now?”

    The proud father answers, “Seventeen pounds,” The bartender is
    concerned: “What the hell happened? He already weighed 25 pounds at
    birth.”

    The Texas father takes a slow swig from his Lone Star beer, wipes his
    lips on his shirt sleeve, leans into the bartender and proudly says,
    “Had him circumcised.”

    8. In a small town, the bell ringer for the church decides he’s had his
    fill and wants to retire, so puts an ad in the paper for applicants.

    The next day, a man without arms shows up. The bell ringer is a little
    skeptical as to the man’s ability, but the applicant offers a
    deminstration.

    At the top of the tower, the man charges at the bell, jumping at the
    last second and hitting it with his face. The bell lets out a loud ring
    and the applicant gets the job.

    A week later, the new ringer misses the bell and falls over the side to
    his death. Everyone in the church crowds around the body and the former
    bell ringer is called over to identify the body.

    Upon inspecting the victim, he says, “I don’t know his name, but the face sure does ring a bell.”

    She was so good. But I think Eddie Fisher had the best voice of all the
    crooners. Shame he picked the wrong women to marry but what a GREAT
    Voice. Some of his songs that were not big hits are so good. Check out the site on Facebook dedicated to him with loads of videos: Wish You Were Here is the name of the Facebook site. His fans still love him. I personally put many videos of him singing from his 1950’s Coke Time Show.
