It’s Our Jazz

The J and is America.
Freedom playing new classical
Jazz will. Noted free ideas

Those of will, feel of music.

Time         Crazy



Yeah, coooool…


Beat, beat, beat


Send me places.
Send me now!

Scat for me Ella!

Your sweet riffs
and fragments…

Blow me away Ella!

Black, blue, yellow, white

Hard! Soft,

American notes evolves
Evolves, evolves

Roots, roots, routes…

It’s our jazz!

Baby, our jazz
