Welcome to the Jazz Café Madame et Monsieur. Where would you like to sit? A table near the band if you please. \x26#34;Certainly and we guarantee a splendid show, if only you are willing to put down your soup spoons and listen. We can only hope diners are not offended by the supercilious tone of the head waiter at our imaginary Jazz Café. But he is a connoisseur of le jazz hot and can’t abide people talking during performances by artists such as Carmen McRae, Nina Simone and Peggy Lee, not to mention Dave Brubeck, Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong and Charlie Parker.
