Clubscene - WordJazz


Magic keys magic chords

piano and guitar synchronized

in their message to the devoted

minds locked like no Vulcan ever knew

each firing the other into new

more complicated melodies

and all the while the drums and bass

are building the beat cranking the vibe

and we few remaining stalwarts

slapped the tables and hooted our enthusiasm

and when we knew the tune couldn't grow any more

the ghost of Gene Harris appeared

and moved into the piano player's hands

sending us all to Jazz Valhalla.
