(Very detailed cartoon!  An ornate Baroque concert hall, filled with the hoity-toity of the day, in both balcony and orchestra seats.  Frilly shirts, powdered wigs, lady with a fan, sheet music, footlights with candles . . . very impressive!  I thought all the clue words were challenging.  I thought we had seen “bemuse” sometime in the past, but the ralis95 database says it’s new.  In total there were four new words today.  Surprisingly, “shrimp” is also a new addition, as are “clamor” and “revive”.  For me, “uptown” was difficult.  It’s not new, so I have to credit the jumbling for its difficulty.  I had to write out about ten combinations before I was able to come up with “clamor”.  Very worthy word, both to today’s cartoon and to the database.  I’m sure the answer letter layout gave some of you fits, as it gave away nothing.  I guess I’d have to say this is a . . . Classic Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
