Fiona's Comments

A song with several chapters. Begins with an easy intro but some subtle tension, followed by a conflict of call and replies that argue and fight for superiority, and then we turn the page to the next chapter, and apparently the main characters have worked their difference out, because the song ends like everyone's at the bar having a friendly drink. Fun tune.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
