Rebecca asked:

"I was looking at www.redhotjazz.com and next to the instruments played by
Adrian Rollini, there is listed a goofus.  Can anyone explain what that

My memory might be playing tricks again but I seem to recall reading
somewhere that a goofus was one of those little plastic gadgets with a
miniature keyboard and a mouthpiece. Blow into the mouthpiece, press the
keys and you are playing the goofus.
