Happy Birthday, Hootie

Happy Birthday to Jay McShann. This is the second one since 1916 that he isn't around to celebrate it.

Cody and I used to see him from time to time in St. Joseph or Kansas City. One life-memorable time at the gorgeous Folly Theater, with Claude Fiddler Williams, and Harry "Sweets" Edison. All of them are gone now.

Absolutely the very last of the Blue Devils.
