Help me to release Pent-up emotions Thru flowing sounds That re-activate your image Playing til dawn Such amazing music Meticulously done Flowing with love's charms Yet so unique the aural angle In a world of its own Kept me company When the rest I'd blown.
Swallowed by time Yet right here each moment Listening to tunes --- The warmth of your bones Flowing thru those sounds Invading brain's home With a warmth, a deep passion That can never be gone.
I love jazz because next to my kids, it's the love of my life.
I was first exposed to jazz by Joe Rico from a tiny station in Niagara Falls in 1954 when I was 13.
The best show I ever attended was Maynard Ferguson who blew the roof off Massey Hall in the late 50s.
My advice to new listeners is to listen to everything you can and then listen again.
