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"
