Turn It On

I relish jazz that's smooth and light. First, Kenny G--what a delight! His "Songbird" helps my spirits soar, and "Breathless" makes me wish for more. Let Spyro Gyra start my day with "Morning Dance," and then I'll sway as Boney James and Peter White play tunes so fine both day and night. Euge Groove's "Chillaxin"' makes me move. I'm young again and born to groove. Add Botti's trumpet, Abair's sax for entertainment to the max. A breeze from Benson and Jarreau floats through my being. Let it flow! When stars turn on, I can't be blue. Acoustic Alchemy, thank you. When I need words that make me sigh, young Norah Jones croons "Don't Know Why." I thrill to Ingram's "Woo Woo Song." With picks like these I can't go wrong. Notes: Stanza 3: "Born 2 Groove" Stanza 4: "Breezin' " and "Summer Breeze" "Turn on the Stars June 21, 2019, entered in Geraldine Taylor's Poetry Anthology--Music Theme Contest

Janice, I wish I could come and dance with you. We would become 12 again and put our knees out, and still we would sway, and groove. I have to warn you, when I dance I STOMP too.

LOL! I still dance, but some parts don't move as smoothly as they did fifty years ago! Thanks so much for the comment, Caren! Janice
