Become rounded in jazz reminiscence

Become Rounded at a jazz restaurant. rounded at club3333 blue room Some years ago I casually became accustomed to jazz recordings performed by several female artists whose albums happened to be available in a tiny sleepy town. It started one day when someone real close got hold of one lone jazz album, Cool Edinburgh jazz vocalist Niki King’s Azure. After listening to her lithe and soulful voice, I decided to ransack a rather rare music store hidden in a cool back lane that sold only high fidelity expensive recordings to audiophiles. I managed to get a few jazz albums which I treated like rare gems in those days. I got to listen to Norah Jones’ Feels like Home. My friend and I then listened to Diana Krall’s The Look of Love…No, we did not have high-end audio playback system. But we really enjoyed listening despite our humbler audio player.

I never thought much of the meanings of the lyrics and did not bother to look them up. Neither did my friend bother. To round up today’s reminiscence of those jazzy and somewhat crazy days, I dig these out from the internet source. Well, here are some lyrics that seem well rounded and well presented of the lazy, lean, cool and casual mood and tone of those days.

Drifting, dreaming
In an azure mood
Stardust gleaming
Through my solitude

Here in my seclusion
You’re a blue illusion
While I’m in this azure interlude
I’m not wanted
I’m so all alone

(Ella Fitzgerald – Azure Lyrics)

Sunrise
Looks like morning in your eyes
But the clocks held 9: 15 for hours
Sunrise Sunrise
Couldn’t tempt us if it tried

Cuz the afternoon’s already come and gone
And I said

oooo, oooo, oooo
To you
Surprise
Surprise
Couldn’t find it in your eyes
But I’m sure it’s written all over my face

(Norah Jones – Sunrise Lyrics)

What am I to you
Tell me darling true,
To me you are the sea
Vast as you can be
and deep the shade of blue

When you’re feeling low
Oh to whom else do you do
see I cry if you hurt
I’d give you my last shirt
because I love you so

(Norah Jones – What Am I To You? Lyrics)

The look of love
Is in your eyes.
A look your smile
Can’t disguise.
The look of love,
It’s saying so much more than
just words could ever say.
And what my heart has heard,
Well, it takes my breath away.

(Diana Krall – The Look Of Love Lyrics)

The sky may be starless,
The night may be moonless,
But deep in my heart,
there’s a glow,
for deep in my heart,
I know that you love me.
You love me, because you told me so.

Love letters straight from your heart,
Keep us so near while we’re apart.
I’m not alone in the night,
When I can have all the love you write.

(Diana Krall – Love Letters Lyrics)
