Bebop Spoken There

Gretchen Parlato: "There's always an essence of the original [tune] that should be protected. I try to find that first - it's the thing that draws me to the material" - (DownBeat, March 2021)

Gordon F. Phillips Takes Five

BABY BLUE*
There’s a sound that’s buggin’ me,
Baby blue (3),
An’ its’ diggin’ into me,
Baby blue (3).

But what you hear,
It’s all you ever wanted to hear (2),
Baby blue.
Come on, unwind.
Why can’t you give me more of your time? (2),
Baby blue.
There’s a tremor in the air,
Baby blue (3),
An’ it echoes in the air,
Baby blue (3).
But what you hear, etc.

There’s a sound that’s buggin’ me,
Baby blue (3),
An’ it’s diggin’ into me,
Baby Blue (3).
G. F. Phillips
*In 5/4 time, based on the Dave Brubeck Quartet instrumental:  Take Five
