Representin’?
Marsallis Wynton,
lippin’ high altitude
with vituperous vicissitudes
while the ground zero heroes
fiddle with Nero, Peter that is,
pianissimo, master fortissimo
riffin’ sixteen to the bar,
embouchure embraces
old and exciting faces
Lester leapin’ in,
vamped, turnaround
Savoy jumped up and down the town.
Far past braggadocios
now seems totally atrocious
down from the fifth
kick on the one, shuffle
along backbeat, step brothers two feet
up in the air, screamin’ tight lips
swirling hips, brass lit sound
smooth walking bass, brown
shoes and velvets cases
carrying musical heat,
back to the beat
Sweet!
J. R. is back in town.
That’s Joshua Redding
if you’re not down.


:cool:

Ra,

Brother "THIS" is poetry at it's finest. No unnecessary words. Just message and art.

Gracious Queen I hope you do come back to destee...I see last time you were online here was 6 years ago on my birthday...I was probably probably taking a puff on that good 'ol stuff at the time...maybe sitting back sipping Coffee, Tea, or Wine...I just had to go back and read your previous posts.
Moved back to the Borough of my birth...Queens New York...Originally from SouthSide but now I live in Far Rockaway.
Clarity to pursue my mission in 2020
