I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In


My older brother used to play with a very talented performer back in the day in Providence, RI. The fellow could do everything. Balloon animals, magic, juggling, mad piano skills, sing. He taught himself to play the musical saw for some reason. He would only play songs that could incorporate the saw properly -- I Saw Her Standing There; The First Time I Ever I Saw Your Face -- that sort of thing. Ave Maria would have been right out.

 I Saw Her Again, Last Night, though...

Good night Jose Rose, wherever you are.

(Thanks to Charles Schneider for sending that one along)

It's a good fit. I like a guy who saws away on a saw. Especially when it sounds that good.

I wonder if that saw player you knew has ever played at he NYC Musical Saw Festival. If you don't know of the festival, this is Time Magazine's report of it: http://youtu.be/eON-p4afeTkF
