The Upside (A Slice of My Jazz)

Updated on June 19, 2016

Enjoy While Reading The Upside Message


Music To Carry You To A HIgher Plateau

The upside is a side of music

That gives you peace of mind

It allows pursuing dreams

Ecstasies desired and kind,

The upside is upward character

That refuses to go down

And will defeat all opposition

To climb or maintain ground,

The upside is motivation

To avoid pain and despair,

It moves in an organized pattern

With the Designer always there,

The upside supplies the mood

That makes life easier to live,

The upside is only good

Good to receive and to give,

The upside is enormous,

It supports the feelings of pleasure,

The upside is for any of us

With no limits or measure,

On the upside is nothing wrong

For righteousness abides,

The upside is so strong

Hear it mellow as it strides,

The upside of melodious blends

With sounds moving in glory,

As you hear the sounds in sync

You hear and feel a story,

On the upside is the place to be

On the upside is the place to hear

On the upside is the place to see

On the upside life is clear.

The God Side Of Life

Of course, this is my my own little Master piece of music. It was very uplifting when I recorded it. The upside of life can be permanent because it is simply on the God side of life .

    This is very nice. At first reminded me of "Tangerine Dream" kind of music. This is also an interesting take on jazz--more organ than brass--

    You are very talented. V+
