i love jazz

Updated on June 16, 2017

i love jazz.

You need no piano, neither a trumpet, nor a percussion,
play me random, free style,
i am your music, all high,
rhythmic to your every glance, i sigh !!!.

To make me trickle, flow and fall down in those deep trance of blues,
enough are your two beautiful eyes,
improvising on me, at ease,
is their jazz.

      Thanks Louise. Yes here is pure music letting it to flow free with lots of liberty within the porous boundary of rules called jazz.

      Thanks Linda for a great comment. I wrote it after seeing la la land. It has a great jazz theme. I love Dave Brubeck.

      Have you ever heard Bobby Caldwell's Live Version of YouTube video "What You Won't Do For Love"? The instrumental in the background is so enchanting; dreamy... If you wish, I can find the link for you, and send it your way.

      Dave Brubeck composed his Jazz Mass on my Steinway grand piano while living in Hawaii on the island of Kauai. I wrote a hub about this. What a blessing it was to meet and exchange ideas with him.

      I sing jazz professionally and my son is a Jazz double bass instrumentalist. Your title caught my eye. I love the lines in your poem "play me random, free style, I am your music, all high..."

      Thank you so much for this fine tribute to Jazz and my late friend Dave Brubeck.

      Thanks bill for appreciation. Jazz sure is best form of free style music and when it is by masters of their instruments, music turns divine.

      I love jazz as well. I love the freedom of it, the seemingly randomness of it, but all of it within the framework of the piece. Yes indeed, I love jazz, and I love this tribute to it.
