Jazz Band Combo

Street musicians, in poverty’s finest,
beg recognition for a few spare coins.

The rhythm of their beat intoxicates,   
seducing you with their audacity.

Trumpets, offset by the whisper of strings,
harmonize in a release of passion.

Enraptured by the sound of their music, 
youthful bravado numbs pangs of hunger.

Brass brings depth and life to their playing, 
as feelings intensify with each chord.  

Pathos and revelry played in tandem, 
one speaks to the heart, one calls to the soul.

    Emile how can I not like this. Took piano lessons for 7 years and play the trumpet. Enjoy many genres but favor jazz, though of the chamber styles like a Studnitsky or Julian Wasserfuhr. Standup poetry Emile! g

    I'm guessing you live in New Orleans. I can feel the sun's heat, the bricks, hear the music. And I've never even been there. Nicely done.
