When Jeremy Cohen was a kid, he heard Joe Venuti playing in San Franciso. After the performance he asked Joe to give him lessons.

Joe said "Kid, I don't teach!"

Jeremy was crestfallen, of course. Then Joe said:

-- Kid, you play classical?

-- Yes.

-- Then don't stop.

Here's Joe:

Amalgam- The Dudley Moore Trio.

Club-footed working-class Dagenham kid Dudley Moore wins an organ scholarship to Oxford University where he discovers Jazz because he pulled more women that way. Then he teams up with Peter Cook in a famous comedy double act, but continues to play jazz in the basement of Cook's 1960's Establishment Club and provides the musical interludes on the cult Cook/Moore Not Only...But Also TV series.
