Reefer Songs, 23 Original Jazz
& Blues Vocals
Milan 1989

Some people never quit, others give it up after a period.
I used to be a viper from 1976 till 2016, when I couldn’t
stop coughing I’ve never touched it again. I must say, life
was good in those days, it is even better today. Still, when
thinking back, a whole lot of crazy stories pop up and make
me laugh. What are we speaking off? Listen to this marvelous
cd and, if you’ve met that reefer man, you know ..

Sommige mensen stoppen er nooit mee, anderen hangen
de pijp in de wilgen na een tijd. Ik was een ‘viper’ van 1976
tot 2016. Toen ik maar bleef hoesten was het klaar, nooit
meer een korrel aangeraakt. Ik moet zeggen, het leven was
mooi, maar het is vandaag de dag nog mooier. Als ik terug
denk echter komen de leukste verhalen naar boven en wordt
er veel gelachen. Waar we het over hebben ? Luister naar deze
pracht cd en als jij de ‘reefer man’ kent weet je’t ..

  1. Cab Calloway, Bennie Goodman, Sidney Bechett, Ella Fitzgerald, Fats Waller… Quite a number of celebrities were member of tribe !

  2. I love this to bits Moos – thank you so much! It dupes with a lovely Stash LP I have, but there’s a few extra goodies here. I’m surprised it doesn’t include Cleo Brown’s wonderful “The Stuff is Here”.
