Together, they delved deeply into ragtime, Louis Armstrong fare and other classic jazz staples.The free-and-easy repertoire included "Struttin' With Some Barbecue," cornetist Wild Bill Davison's theme song "I Never Knew," "Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans?," "Waiting for the Robert E. Lee," Bix Beiderbecke's "Singin' the Blues," Scott Joplin's "Rose Leaf Blues," and "Back Home in Indiana," among others.

This time Leary included 1947's "Huggin' and Chalkin'" and his exaggerated falsetto take on The Ink Spots pop hit "I Don't Need to Set the World on Fire." They lose their humorous impact the second or third time you've heard him. For me, this was number four.
The matinee concert was held at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Venice.
