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

                        two)

 

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

                       face.

 

How:               Feel it.

All cats know how to land on their feet, or else they‘re not cats, 

but rather they’re perhaps armadillos.

   Cowering 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.
