Don Cherry for a mother? How can you be so cruel?

Ed Leimbacher

Lots of Stitt, grit and Mother wit in your list. Could ever-sentient other-Sonny Rollins really not have recorded any suitable candidate? Meanwhile, for no coherent reason I am reminded of Jack Lemmon in The Apartment, sitting at the bar getting sadly smashed on martinis, arranging his toothpicked olives and telling the bartender, "Lemme have another one of those little mothers..." (That's Billy Wilder for you: ever sentimental.)

How about ......

And Her Mother Came Too - Bobby Short

The Whistler's Mother in Law - Bing Crosby


Ed Leimbacher

Oops, I forgot to mention that great old standard (played by many), "Mom's the Word."

John P. Cooper

"Mama, Pin a Rose on Me" - Mary Lou Williams

Jon-Erik Kellso

"Mama's Gone, Goodbye" is a good ol' good one.

"Mother Popcorn," by James Brown...hehe.

"Theme From Shaft..."

Rab Hines

All fine choices ... but God bless the child who's got her own...
