    Greeting My People,​
    Jus' alil' something I'd written years ago ...
    Enjoy!:)
    Jazz ...
    It’s like … ‘Round Midnight Sensuality
    Broad & Strong “it” sings to me;
    Through the wind that envelope’s my sanity …
    And calls me by my name.
    It’s like … cool, crisp, casuality
    Notes synchronized into melody
    Lifted high, slurring low, with endless longevity
    Speaking “Softly” … “Don’t Explain”.
    It’s like Southern Trees – Willow Weep For Me
    Branches bending Soft & Free;
    Nature Boy, dance in harmony
    As we venture toward it’s flame!
    It’s like Ethiopian nectar soothing a thirst … Oh, soooo ... Tenderly
    April In Paris - A “feeling” one can see
    Hearing the bass, pressing my Body & Soul effortlessly
    After You've Gone … & left me cryin’, throbbing, sighin’ & feelin’ no pain!

    Jazz!

    Nearly forgot this, had to come back for the drop Gracious:




    THE LAST POETS JAZZOETRY LYRICS

    Rhythms and sounds
    in leaps and bounds
    Scales and notes and endless quotes
    Hey! Black soul being told

    Hypnotizing while improvising is mentally appetizing
    Off on a tangent
    Ain't got a cent
    Searching, soaring, exploring,
    seek and you shall find
    More time, more time
    More time, more time
    More time, more time
    More time, more time
    to find who? How? Where were you? Are you blue?
    We're not thru digging the new
    Climbing higher, soul's on fire
    Seeking the top, can't stop, dig bop!
    Left earth on a new birth
    In space, out space, our place and face us.
    Regenerated hiss complicated, vibrating, educating, stimulating
    Young and old as a whole

    Those who know jazz is prose
    And how it goes and is going to be
    Me, us, we, free
    Baby cant you see
    Hey! Check tt out without a doubt what it's all about then shout!
    Off and on, being born
    Rhythmically in a wail can't fail, smooth sail
    Break it down, run it around
    and give it a pound on the town in the world
    dig the sound of our love inside our pride that's on the ride

    Jazzoetry is poetry!
    Getting hat on a scat
    The beginning of this, the end of that
    Riffling on a cue, the play is never through
    Solid, baby! Me and you
    Smooth glowin' and flowin' while your horn is blowin'
    Puttin' on the show
    digging some mo' black ego!
    Going up, growin' up that's us
    Smokin', cooking, hard boiled like a cobra-coiled
    Blowing your mind to rhythmic time
    Digging up driving, striving, arriving at conclusions
    Life and death all in one breath!
    Minor chords, soft keys, summer breeze, winter freeze, listen please!

    Breakin' the rules, schooling the fools
    Jazz is cool that's the truth
    dig my proof rhythm and swing doing your thing
    Abnormally, informally, Jazzoetry is poetry

    Poetic vibes, masculine bass
    Flute and drums pick up the pace
    Piano keys on a spiralling flight

    That's jazzoetry in black and white
    Brilliant colours, glowing hues
    intimate expressions, personal views
    Spreadin' the news, by way of the blues
    Brothers, others, lovers, mothers, sons, friends
    Brothers, others, lovers,
    mothers, sons, friends
    Brothers, others, lovers, mothers, sons, friends
    On the setain't none of y'all been freed yet!

    Trying to pin what's happening
    what you're coming from and going to
    Communicating with me and you
    internal feeling is spiritually healing
    When I'm dealing with jazz
    that has turned me on

    Blow that horn!
    Of course it's boss, get on your horse
    And ride with pride jazz and poetry side by side!
