Bird 'n' Diz
and Diz, "big band music that's where it is"
swinging hard, but soon thought they might have more to say
I've been hearing
things inside my head at night
like to see where the thoughts will lead
I don't know where they'll take me, but all I need
is just a little time to see, just a little time, I know it's inside of me
Don't give up
the search for the piece that works
look for love in your life
a fresh voice is long lived, like Bird and Diz
virtue's found in the fight it's life, it's life
Hang at Mintons
trading licks "fresh harmony, fast tempos at six"
early morning jams with Monk, when Bebop was invented
Now we're making
changes like never before
turning heads, confounding ears
cut a record at Savoy, then we'll hit the road
1945, it's clear, 1945, revolution's in the air this year
Now I don't need
my mind to keep my eye on the ball
Moose the Mooche has got a grip, but 'long as I got my horn
"Reach, Bird, reach for us all!"
"Reach, Bird, reach, we'll be there when we hear you call!"
