THIS IS JAZZ - BY Annie O' Donnell (dedicated to Ron Mathewson who is the jazz master of glissando on the double bass)

falling over the chord into white notes dischords scream but if I wait in the suspended the other chords will come and carry me to resolution, resolved cadence improvise with the lies they've worn hackneyed words that have never played the voice that sings from the pit jazz was born in, from where the Spirit flew into wounds with a glissando from the hand of God to chase, to touch, to catch the note that beats in the heart so it runs like wild horses dancing with waves in the sea. That is Jazz. copyright Annie O' Donnell 2009
