My Poe to You


Sign in to view read count

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.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
