A couple goes to see a marriage counselor. They say their marriage is on the rocks because they never speak to each other.

The counselor tries to get them to talk, but they just sit there with their arms folded and their mouths closed.

So he pulls out his upright bass and starts taking a solo.

Instantly, the couple turns to each other and starts conversing for the first time in months.

Shocked by this, the couple asks the counselor: "How did you know that would work?"

"Simple," he says, "Everyone always talks during the bass solo."

What would you have to do to make a jazz musician feel bad about their playing?
