Title: Mon., 9/15 Don Rosenthal
Post by: magus on September 15, 2014, 09:04:25 AM
THEME:   last word of a phrase can be a receptacle for beer
Brew found in increasing quantities {theme}   BEER   
Scat legend   ELLA [I think constructors really know nothing about Ella Fitzgerald except the little scatting she did at the end of her fine singing career.  Her greatest singing on record is not scat, and she was a living legend before she and Luis Armstrong, a gifted trumpeter, tried the silly jazz vocalization which died before they did.]   
Don must be a francophile:  AMI, ETE, and ILE.  Not being so inclined, I'd clue them as follows:  "Old soap, Bon ___"; "Gam end?"; and "Percent plus?"   
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
