Elephant Blues

Moving soulful blues ballad


An elephant goes into a high class restaurant and sits at the piano bar, where a pianist is playing some nice, up-tempo jazz.

The pianist switches to a long and soulful blues ballad, and when he finishes his ballad, the pianist notices that the elephant is all teary-eyed over his drink.

He says to the elephant, “Wow, man - I didn’t think you would be that affected by my ballad...”

“No, no it isn’t like that,” said the elephant. “I just recognized some of the keys.”
