The discovery of song and the creation of musical instruments both owed their origin to a human impulse which lies much deeper than conscious intention:  the need for rhythm in life… the need is a deep one, transcending thought, and disregarded at our peril and this is the very reason I want to focus solely on music, also because:-

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination
and life to everything.”

Plato

Jazz

Jazz under the starsA jazz musician is a juggler who uses harmonies instead of oranges.  ~Benny Green

“Where words fail, music speaks.” Hans Christian Andersen, so as words fail me now I will let music speak on my behalf by dedicating to you some of the lyrics of one of my favorite songs as I encourage you to go out there and make memories:

If I could only find a note to make you understand
I’d sing it softly in your ear and grab you by the hand
Just keep it stuck inside your head, like your favorite tune
And know my heart’s a stereo that only plays for you

Tell me if that is not poetry then what is? Have a wonderful weekend people and have  yourself a musical weekend.
