Just back from a gig and some single malt. This limerick is for Tito
Martino, adapted from Gershon Legman's first volume of Limericks

A hip reedman while jazzing in Rio,
Was seducing a beauty name Cleo,
As she lowered her panties,
She said "no andantes;
I want this allegro con brio".

If you google search for "G Legman", or "G Legman + Limericks", you will
come up with a wealth of information about this master of the ribald
joke. Plus several sites with newer Limericks from his other fans
besides Bill Haesler, Phil O'Rourke and me. (Legman passed away in
France in 1999)
