Herding Cats

…an expression I often use about running a jam session.

It does have an idiomatic jazz-related connotation, and as you’ll hear at the conclusion of the video:

“it ain’t an easy job, but when you bring a herd into town and you ain’t lost a one of ’em – ain’t a feelin’ like it in the world”…

I hope the guys at EDS won’t mind me linking to this. Hey, I do happen to have an HP laptop.

    I was always profoundly grateful to anyone who could actually run a good jam session. I have been the victim of many bad ones.
