Daily Joke: Conductor Does Not Want to Admit a Jazz Clarinetist to the Orchestra
A conductor was getting an orchestra together for a performance he had planned to have at the end of the month. However, he was having trouble finding a clarinet player.
After several days of searching for a musician himself, he finally got into contact with a contractor. The contractor explained, "I've only got one guy available at the moment, and he is a jazz clarinetist."
The conductor sighed and said, "I can't stand working with jazz musicians. They dress badly, they're always late, and they usually have an attitude problem, plus they always have so many things going on!"
"Well," said the contractor, "he's the only clarinet player I have on my list. '
The conductor was getting pretty desperate, so he said, "Alright, I guess I'll have to take him. I'd rather have a jazz clarinetist than none." A week later, the conductor held his first rehearsal.
He arrived early and noticed the new clarinetist was wearing a spiffy and brand-new-looking suit and tie, with a pencil on his stand, and was sitting on the stage already practicing his piece.
During the rehearsal, the clarinetist played very well and was responsive to all of the conductor's instructions. Furthermore, the same thing happened at the second rehearsal, but this time the clarinetist performed almost perfectly.
A week later, at the dress rehearsal, this happened again, with the clarinetist playing his part absolutely flawlessly. The conductor was very impressed and started to feel bad about his previous assumptions.
So during the break, the conductor addressed the orchestra, "I have to apologize. I was dreading having to work with a jazz musician, but I must say, our clarinet player has really stepped up and completely prove me wrong."
Addressing the clarinet player, he said, "I have to apologize because you really blew away my expectations."
The conductor continued, "You've been here early for all the rehearsals, played your part beautifully, and have really been a team player. I want to tell you that I really appreciate your effort and dedication."
The clarinet player replied, "Hey dude, it's the least I can do considering I can't make it to the show."
