Jazz jam session



Jazz jam session
only one eighth note
becomes a prelude
to Love in progression…

B-A-C-H anagram –
touch profondo flat B
rest, breathe out an Air
in climax crescendo to C
swiftly vanish in H
with morendo.

Pizzicato from bass
descended whipped cream
whoop-du-da-du
picked by squabble
trumpet with sourdine
wa-wa  -  wa-wa
amplified by drum
booom-purum-pum-poom
pacified trombone
sliding down to minor
in piano swing
s-s-s-swish (plates)
final quavering tone…

From short shore
(staccato) of impression
to lago-o-on of sensations
dive out whole 
stand spring tall
at ping-pong jam session
emphasize, vocalize,
live jazz…

  5. Love the interplay throughout - you captured here what I heard Wayne Shorter say about a month ago on a pbs interview - He said he defined the word Jazz as "I Dare You"! Isn't that great? And you picked right up on that thread here. Really enjoyed it!
