They Got Tight ......


                  ........While the drummer and the bass fiddler made shock waves on the roof Bolling raised his voice and began to belt it out. About how he followed her up and down and around, and underground, up Russian Hill and Nob Hill and Telegraph Hill and across the Bay Bridge and back by way of the Oakland ferry. So he found the Sphinx on Market Street cadging drinks and they got tight and they danced on the golden asphalt of delight.
