We have a specific vocabulary we share with musicians. We also have sub vocabularies we share with other players of our instrument. With other musicians who play the same genres of music we do. With others who work in other ways in the business side of music…

I am reminded of one of my favorite swing songs by Levey Smith and the Red Hot Skillet Lickers:

All the other cats were gathering round

To see what he was trying to prove

But anyone could plainly see

He was pulling them out of the groove

At last the leader turned around and said

Listen Pops, you had better stop

There you go, you did it again

And you just beeped

When you should have bopped.
