Papa Jo

There is a smile of love,
And there is a smile of deceit,
And there is a smile of smiles
In which those two smiles meet.

– William Blake

This is wondrous, truly a smile in which all the smiles meet. And who but Louis himself smiles better than Jo Jones?

Some missing from so much music: wit. Even rarer: wit that is profound.
