Dear Brian,

I never intended or supposed to imply you did it in malignance. 

No need to apologize an innocent oversight. 
But please, stop that "inspired", "verbal and poetic skills", "gentle
art of adapting medieval sonnetry", heck, I just stole some verses and
put some orgiastic disorder on it.

And about football and latter-day Brazilian intelligentsia, you saw what
happened to the bright British football team just some hours ago! OK we
had good weather at our favor, but the judge just stole off our better
player to help the brits!
Don't mind, we'll be always in good speaking terms, my brother!

Jazz content:  "Don't go 'way nobody, let's have a good time!"

Tito "Poetastro" Martino

Subject: was nice newsletter - now Jazzin' the Great Bard! (warning -
minimal jazz content)

Tito -
My profuse and abject apologies for this unforgivable, though innocent
While I realised the "verse" was posted by you, I did not realise that
inspired jazz adaptations were your very own.   Worthy of the Great Bard
himself, I might add, which led me to use the frivolous pseudonym "Will
Spearshake", as the writer, in my newsletter.
I am copying this to the DJML, to compensate in some small way for the
in which I appear to have taken advantage of your verbal and poetic
in the gentle art of adapting sonnets.

My newsletter has now been changed. (better late than never!)
It is to be hoped that the change will reflect and pay due recognition
this intriguing collaboration between medieval sonnetry and latter-day
Brazilian intelligentsia!

Seriously, though, my congratulations too on your enviable command of
English language and literature.

Jazz content:  Would Shakespeare have been a jazz lover, if he had been
around in 1917?
Warm regards,
Brian (Canada via England!)

I hope we shall still be on speaking terms after the great game coming
this Friday  - England versus Brazil!    Let's hope for an impartial
referee!   I think your guys will find the afternoon heat more to their
advantage than the English.   Now, should it rain, better watch out!
