When I Hear a New Melody

Sometimes when I hear a new melody that catches my attention I wonder if the great musicians and composers of the past were sitting up in heaven trading fours when one of them played something the others liked. Puccini would quickly jot it down and hand it to Gershwin to embellish it. Gershwin would then hand it to Gabriel, interrupting his conversation with Louis saying, “Here, this is good. Can you get this down there to one of the new guys.”
