Don’t Snap Your Cat= Don’t Lose Your Cool
Who: Musician (Cat)
What: Should never lose the beat (AKA: snap, as if snapping in
Where: Any venue
When: While playing
Why: … better yet, why not? – If the cat loses the beat,
the cat will fall on its face. It’s uncool to fall on one’s
How: Feel it.
All cats know how to land on their feet, or else they‘re not cats,
but rather they’re perhaps armadillos.
Who wants to be an armadillo?
With a slight nod to jazz in the most virtuosic section (cool cats also make me think of jazz), Don’t Snap Your Cat is simply a work that allows the tubist to have fun, but to also show off serious skills. Easy breezy? I think not. Cool. Yes.
