Jazz Sites - Autumn re-lated



Terry Callier - Paris Blues
taken from the album - The Mr. Bongo Years (2008)





The sky was grey when I woke up this morning
Seems to me that nothin’ was the same
My situation changed without a warning
(The) Sad thing is I don’t know who’s to blame
Once upon a time our love was shining brightly
Maybe it was just too good to last
(Or I don’t know) perhaps I held to tightly
I had no idea the end would come so fast
Au revoir, she said
She’s out of my life-fm out of my head
So difficult to know which way to choose
And she’s gone c’est ca
Can I go on - je ne sais pas
Got to find a way to loose the Paris Blues

The boulevard is just another by-way
Where we walked together - now I walk alone
One more lonely heart (and) one more lonely highway
One more drifter - one more rollin’ stone
Au revoir, she said
She’s out of my life-fm out of my head
So difficult to know which way to choose
And she’s gone c’est ca
Can I go on - je ne sais pas
Got to find a way to loose the Paris Blues

Almost blue 
Almost doing things we used to do 
There's a girl here and she's almost you 
Almost 
All the things that you promised with your eyes  
I see in hers too 
Now your eyes are red from crying 
Almost blue 
Flirting with this disaster became me 
It named me as the fool who only aimed to be
Almost blue 
Almost touching it will almost do 
There's a part of me that's always true... always 


(Not all good things come to an end now, it is only a chosen few 
I have seen such an unhappy couple) 
Almost me 
Almost you
Almost blue






Sarah Vaughan - Whatever Lola wants
lyrics & recorded by Sarah Vaughan in 1954








Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets and little man, little Lola wants you 
Make up your mind to have 
(Make up you mind to have) 
No regrets (no regrets) 
Recline yourself 
Resign yourself, you're through
I always get, what I aim for 
And your heart and soul 
Is what I came for 
Whatever Lola wants (Lola wants) 
Lola gets (Lola gets) 
Take off your coat 
Don't you know you can't win 
You're no exception to the rule 
I'm irresistible you fool .. give in 
(Give in, you'll never win)
Whatever Lola wants 
Lola gets
 [Instrumental Interlude] 
I always get, what I aim for 
And your heart and soul 
Is what I came for 
Whatever Lola wants (Lola wants) 
Lola gets (Lola gets) 
Take off your coat, don't you know, you can't win 
You're no exception to the rule 
I'm irresistible you fool ... give in 
(Give in, you'll never win) 
Give in (give in, you'll never win) 
Give in (give in, you'll never win)




Hird - Keep Your Kimi 
taken from "Dealers of Nordic Music" 2003





Uh uh uh...
Full moon
Make this night
Love will 
Heal the wound
The glowing light
Will set things right
It's alright
Full moon
Wait in vain
Love for sure
Will come with rain
Rain for sure
Will make it right
It's alright
Uh uh uh...
[Repeat]
It's alright
It's alright...
[repeat]
Dark Sky - rinse me with rain and I'll cry
Love tears blurring my sight, it's alright
Filled up and want to be empty
Rinse Me
[repeat]
Uh uh uh...






Mario Biondi and the high Five Quintett
"This is what you are" 


Italian jazz/soul vocalist Mario Biondi is born of artistic stock in the Sicilian state of Catania





Take me up and let me down
Hold me when I'm sad
Take my eyes to look around
Take my ears to listen to the stars
This is what u are
Knock me down Knock me out
Make me feel shy
But when you hold me in your arms
I can just forget the tears I've cried
This is what u are
Write your number on my wall
It's all u gotta do
Carve your shadow on my soul even when you break my heart in two
This is what u are
lala
This is what u are

sha la la

Take me up and let me down
Hold me when I'm sad
Take my eyes to look around
Take my ears to listen to the stars
This is what u are
Knock me down knock me out
Make me feel shy
But when you hold me in your arms
I can just forget the tears I've cried
This is what u are
say ah ah
This is what u are
lala
This is what u are

sha la la

Can - She brings the Rain (1973)
taken from their 1970 album "Soundtrack"


video


Yes, I care if she brings me spring, 
But don�t care about nothing, 
She brings the rain, 
Oh yeah, she brings the rain. 
In the dawn of the silvery day 
Clouds seem to melt away, 
She brings the rain, 
Oh yeah, she brings the rain. 

She brings the rain, it feels like spring, 
Magic mushrooms out of dreams, 
She brings the rain, 
Oh yeah, she brings the rain. 
So mellow yellow, grey disappears, 
Flying on the raven�s wing, 
She brings the rain, 
Oh yeah, she brings the rain. 
Yes I care, she brings me spring, 
But don�t care about nothing, 
She brings the rain, 
Oh yeah, she brings the rain. 
She brings the rain, it feels like spring, 
Magic mushrooms out of things, 
She brings the rain, it feels like spring, 
She brings the rain, it feels like spring, 
She brings the rain, it feels like spring, 
She brings the rain. 

In the dawn of the silvery day 
Clouds seem to melt away, 
She brings the rain, 
Oh yeah, she brings the rain, 
Oh yeah, she brings the rain, 
Oh yeah, she brings the rain, 
Oh yeah, she brings the rain.
