Biography

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Jazz (from Merriam-Webster dictionary):
American music developed especially from ragtime and blues and characterized by propulsive syncopated rhythms, polyphonic ensemble playing, varying degrees of improvisation, and often deliberate distortions of pitch and timbre.
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Journeyman musicians John Richards, Michael Doster, and Patton James are not the typical Nashville Cats.

These seasoned band-leaders and in-demand session players have combined efforts to create "top shelf" jazz and blues, in addition to a unique concoction of swing and lounge music.

Each member has achieved individual success (John Richards - John Richards Trio, Michael Doster - B.B. King, Patton James - Patton James & The Synchromatics) and now Set Jet Trio has become their main focus and musical outlet.

Their mix of personal influences and solid musicianship is authentic and affords them the ability to create music and not simply copy what has already been done.

Past festivals include:
- Summer Lights (Nashville)
- The African Street Festival (Nashville)
- Main Street Jazz Festival (Franklin)
- Cookeville Jazz Festival
- Franklin Jazz Festival

Lyrics

Qualified

Written By: Patton James

SHE WALKED INTO THE ROOM

SHE TURNED EVERYBODY'S HEAD

I SAY “WHO IS THAT JOE?”

BUT JOE DIDN’T HEAR A WORD I SAID

I WATCHED HIM AS HE WATCHED HER

SLIDE ACROSS THE FLOOR

“I DON’T KNOW HER NAME

BUT I’VE SEEN THAT WALK BEFORE”

DON’T FALL IN LOVE BOYS

DON’T FALL IN LOVE

IF YOU’RE NOT QUALIFIED

YOU BETTER BE PREPARED

EVERY HOUR OF THE NIGHT

TO GIVE HER WHAT SHE WANTS

TO MAKE HER FEEL ALRIGHT

YOU BETTER TAKE IT SLOW MAN

DON’T EXPECT TOO MUCH AT FIRST

YOU’RE GONNA HAVE TO GIVE

AND GIVE UNTIL IT HURTS

DON’T FALL IN LOVE BOYS

DON’T FALL IN LOVE

IF YOU’RE NOT QUALIFIED

IF YOU’RE NOT GENUINE, BONA-FIDE

AND POSITIVELY CERTIFIED

SHE’S OUT OF YOUR LEAGUE

DON’T BE NOBODY’S FOOL

IF YOU DON’T HAVE A BACHELORS DEGREE

IN THE SCIENCE OF MAKING LOVE

YOU BETTER TAKE MY ADVICE

GO BACK TO SCHOOL

IF YOU DON’T HAVE A HEART

AT LEAST A HEART OF STONE

GET HER OFF YOUR MIND

LEAVE THAT GIRL ALONE

‘CAUSE THAT’S WHAT IT WILL TAKE

A MAN WITH NERVES OF STEEL

TO HANDLE THAT WOMEN AND

THE WAY SHE’LL MAKE YOU FEEL

(REPEAT CHORUS)

(SOLO)

DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND SHE’S IN DEMAND

AND UNLESS YOU ARE SUPER-MAN

SHE’S OUT OF YOUR LEAGUE

DON’T BE NOBODY'S FOOL

IF YOU DON’T HAVE A BACHELORS DEGREE

IN THE SCIENCE OF MAKING LOVE

YOU BETTER TAKE MY ADVICE

GO BACK TO SCHOOL

(REPEAT LAST VERSE AND CHORUS THEN OUT)

“ you better go to school…”
