And All That Jazz by Allen Kanovsky

And All That JAZZ,  written by Allen Kanovsky and recited live, 
Jazzonian Youth event 10/27/2012

I've been hanging out, listening to JAZZ since way back in the day.
In hip joints, clip joints and even get a grip joints.
Coast to coast, even abroad.
Europe, Asia, Central and Sur America.
They share a commonality where ever they may be
The acoustics suck, the bartenders should be driving trucks.
The only thing that keeps you coming back is the music,
and All That JAZZ

Talk "Dixie, "Swing", "Blues", "Bop" and "Fusion"
Saxophones, Trombones, Trumpets, Pianos Bass, Drums and Guitars
Duos, Trios and sometimes Quartets, Quintets, Sextets, Septets and even Octets
and All That JAZZ

Open that door, blindfolded, I mean worldwide, and you will be able to find the bar,
 or tables or the men's room. They look alike and most of the time they smell alike.
You're not there for the ambiance. You're there for the music
and All That JAZZ

There's an exotic tone to a soprano sax, an almost sexy tone to the tenors and
trumpets jumping in with alacrity. The rhythm section, piano, bass, drums and guitar
sometimes match your heartbeat.

Where did it start? Who started it? When? Why?
No one cares, except historians. All of us are here for the music
and All That Jazz.
