    Close your eyes and listen w/your heart
    To a musical banquet for 2, shared a la carte.
    We'll climb unto the realms of love's highest ecstasy
    Starting w/The Duke, we'll make our own Black & Tan Fantasy

    Between us, there'll be neither pretension nor guile
    And w/Lester, we'll just relax, enjoy and Linger Awhile.

    With no need to rush, we could even start around 11
    W/the phenomenal Miles and his 7 Steps To Heaven…..

    We'll have a romantic interlude
    w/Oscar P's Blues Etude
    And after Coltrane puts us In A Sentimental Mood
    We won't feel the need to hum nor woefully sing Lonnie's Lament
    We'll just lay and play till ALL our passions are well drained & fully spent

    Yes, we'll let our hearts soar
    With "The Hawk" & "The Bird"
    And know just what the other
    Needs & wants w/o uttering a word.

    Closely to each other, we'll cleave, clasp, & cling
    Like Hampton , we'll find our very own Tempo & Swing

    So, close your eyes and listen w/your soul
    My heart and my body's under your control

    And if you wonder what it is that makes me so hot
    Well, like Ramsey said, it's just Something You Got!

    A potpourri of musical overtures

    …that puts us where we need to be…in capturing the essence of this PEACE. THANK YOU for allowing me this moment…

    …THIS MOMENT of Duke…and Miles
    As Coltrane relaxes us…for awhile

    My eyes are closed

    Their music calls our names
    And so many others
    We sometimes get lost in their fame

    As they establish a mellow mood for this…this
    Romantic interlude
    The ambiance
    A touch
    While dining on some finger foods

    AND THEN…there’s you.

    Thank you, Sister Plat!


    And I hadn't realized that I missed Baller, Queen, and Rich as well.

    THANK YOU ALL!

    There is nothing so sweet as groovin
    to the sounds of good music, with the lights low
    fireplace blazin and allow the music to flow
    into your soul.....close your eyes.

    it's an experience to savor with the one you love.


    You've captured the mood Cherry, so eloquently.
