continued the series in the hopes of generating some. Time signature of
25:16 Patent Pending. The Bearskin Rug, a luxury item, is also a kind of
dance known as a rug. Time signatures of 35:16 and 33:16 Patent Pending.
Theme For Eric And Eric, aka tfe&e, utilized 23rd chord melodic
extensions, in the hope that a hypnotic effect would be produced on
those who could extend credit to the Frank & Joe Foundation (now
defunct). Eric Sampson (No "A") was an ardent supporter of the
Frank & Joe Foundation, and continues this tradition today with
Naked Kitty Productions and the Cat's A Bear organization. Eric Dolphy
used 23rd chord extensions. Ceiling Street was the Foundation's answer
to Wall Street. The intended height was not reached, signaling the
downturn of the Foundation's capital advances. Double Felix marks the
return of the two cats, Frank & Joe, playing the music of Cat's A
