In an earlier post, FEED THE KITTY, I proposed that rather than lament the grim phenomena that surround the music we love, listeners could be active in their support.

A musician friend sent the photograph below, which will serve as the objective correlative (to bring T.S. Eliot into the conversation) — the living representation and reminder of what we might be doing to keep the art form lively and healthy.  I think there should be far more twenty-dollar bills than ones, but JAZZ LIVES readers will get the idea.

It’s an old Southern custom!
