Love merely a whisper A shadow in the mind Breaks thru with music Totally sublime.
Thus what we had together Still active in song Floods me with an ecstasy Listening til dawn.
The beauty in our trade-off Traced thru these poems Lives in jazz fusion:
The energy of the sun Times an infinity of galaxies Caught in those tunes.
Reaching thru the cobwebs To raise the jewel-encrusted lid Within which rests the symbol: The saxophone channels breathing Into the perfect poem/bed.
For all the love I feel for you Keeps flowing thru those songs; Rich the beauty of our merging As bass and drum beat on, Alive, and flowing energy I feel you in every song.
Thus what we had as passion In every tune plays on: Overwhelming beauty The best gift that I own.
THAT SPECIAL SPOT
Have you any idea, the pain Suffering this solitude Tho no one I can blame. I do wish that you'd hold me. Untie the knot of restrictions, Fill me with that energy again: A fantasy I indulge in Listening as Miles Smiles And beauty roams thru my brain.
For all the pain you caused me Is nothing compared to the artistry You opened as you played, And there you stored your love for me: I feel it every day, That special spot in my brain Steaming with the music Calling out your name.
I was first exposed to jazz as a middle school band student. A college ensemble passed through and put on a concert for the band students (of which I was one). The level of mastery and musicianship blew me away, intimidated, and inspired me
I was first exposed to jazz as a middle school band student. A college ensemble passed through and put on a concert for the band students (of which I was one). The level of mastery and musicianship blew me away, intimidated, and inspired me. Try as I might, I was never able to achieve a high enough level of competency to perform at the level I was first and subsequently exposed to. Regardless, I was hooked on jazz and remain so to this day.
