Song of Songs – extract 470 – work in progress

470
“That was great,” I told Jerry
Most lyrics include rhymes
I don’t expect to understand anything
The first time through
“No, no, definitely not”
“Really, it was beautiful”
“Not a bit. I messed up right after the bridge”
“I didn’t notice”
“I certainly did”
“But it still sounded good”
“Not to me, dammit all”
“I see”
“I’m very particular”
“I see that”
“When I sing, I’m trying to imitate perfectly”
“Perfectly”
“Notes, nuances, tones, precision”
“Band leader repeatability”
“Totally”
“None of the Art Blakely”
“Cab Calloway, all the way”
“No improv”
“Never”
“Damn. I love improv”
“It’s good when it’s good”
“But it ain’t your thing”
“None of it”
“I see”
“So I sucked”
