Messages thru the wires Our love conspires To melt in the fires: All time spent apart Dissolving in the art, Expression from the heart Celebrating union After decades apart.
A dream woven in the music Illustrates the beauty in surrender As rish notes accentuate The flowing energy of love.
Complex hieroglyphics, those melodies I watched you play Still trace your image As the music sways.
The Range of Submission
Sitting in the shadows your image Playing mellow horn, sweet sounds That echo thru the blood stream Passions of long ago, made active With every tune as symbol of The range of submission to Oblivion thru flowing song Remembering how we swayed together Electrified in your arms.
Now searching thru the language Love to bring you to my home. A dream I can't abandon For it lives in every tune; The sense of flowing unity Reflected in those songs.
As Joy Slides
Caught in the waves of infinite Space Single moments like pearls flashing Give a meaning to stars' brightness: An end to our struggle for significance Acknowledging the beauty in NOW As a gift given every day Mixed with memories priceless Thru the transfer of melodies To our love as an act of grace.
Thus joy slides thru the music And I'll never forget your face As I close my eyes and daydream Tho denied the actual taste.
Recall Through Music
The first month in the long sweep Which winter casts across our shore: Days brief, strong cold winds Ripping at stark branches My only company, shared with memory For the passion has blown away.
Everything disappearing Save the recall thru music Roaming thru the brain cells Where memories of you play Exquisitely rich harmonies.
Thus the love here to stay Caught listening to beauty Makes it a perfect day To thank you for the gift Your love sent my way To fill me with an awesome joy Remembering how you played.
I grew up listening to my father's jazz records and listening to the radio. My dad was a musician for many years as a vocalist, bassist and drummer. His two uncles played in the Symphony of Reggio Calabria back in Italy
I grew up listening to my father's jazz records and listening to the radio. My dad was a musician for many years as a vocalist, bassist and drummer. His two uncles played in the Symphony of Reggio Calabria back in Italy. So music and jazz specifically have been a part of me since I was born. I love and perform in all styles of music from around the world. Improvisation in jazz is what drew me in, and still does as well as other genres that feature improvisation. A group of great musicians expressing themselves as one is the hallmark of great jazz and in fact all great music.
