If your idea of cowboy jazz is Sonny Rollins's "Iím an Old Cowhand" or Stan Kenton's "Take Me Back to My Boots and Saddle," ponder agin, pardner. According to country singer Paul Marshall, cowboy jazz is yippee ki-yay giddyup sons of pioneers tumbling tumbleweeds cool water home on the range and don't fence me in. It's a campfire glowing under a silvery moon, harmonica bleating, coyotes yowling and prairie dogs yodeling in 5-part harmony. In other words, it's Wyoming, our least populated state, with half a million people scattered across 100,000 square miles. On second thought, we'll stick with Sonny.

    Just to be mentioned in the same paragraph as Sonny Rollins and the classic "I'm An Old Cowhand" is an honor. Thanks, Alan.
