Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

Gordon F. Phillips Takes Five

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
