    A couple of days ago I gave a pipe that I made to the manager of a local restaurant. I don't know him well, but he seems like a good guy and he's building community in the town. So I gave him a pipe. I don't think he smokes.

    It got me thinking, I have a box full of pipes that I made while learning the basics of drilling and shaping. Many of them smoke just fine, and some look half decent, if a bit wonky here and there.

    So here's the deal:

    The link below is a 20 second clip of turning a stummel on my lathe. The first person who can correctly name the tune playing in the background gets a free pipe. NO SHAZAMMING YOU YOUNG ONES. :old:

    Hint: It's a somewhat obscure jazz standard.

    Mington guesses that it sounds like Mingus. Getting warmer?

    Ha, I "Shazamed" and it worked even with the extra noise of the lathe. Pretty amazing stuff this technology. I never would have got it otherwise.

    Warmer? Depends where you're starting and which direction you're headed. Closer to Mingus than Jelly Roll for sure.

    I don't think it is ABBA.

    Just trying to narrow the field for the others.

    Hint: It's Wes Montgomery on guitar
    Hint: The guy who wrote also wrote a pretty amazing ballad dedicated to a famous trumpet player.

    I feel like I know it, but I'm drawing a blank. My brother would have it in a heartbeat (he's a jazz musician - trumpet).

    Sounds familiar but I don't know the name. I'll guess it is dedicated to Dizzy Gillespie (?) ? I saw him once in a small venue. Imagine those cheeks over a pipe.

    Great image! I'll reward that with another clue:

    It was written about the trumpeter Clifford Brown. The ballad is, "I Remember Clifford."

    That's the ballad, but not the tune playing in the background.

    Are we looking for a title? Or person? Or the words? Lee Morgan?
