Sonny Clark Lyrics

Jump to: Overall Meaning


Overall Meaning

As these are instrumental lyrics, there is no actual message being conveyed by a vocalist. However, the music tells a story of its own. The song Cool Struttin' is a jazz standard that is characterized by its lively, upbeat tempo and a series of soulful and funky horns. The instruments work in harmony to create a cool and jazzy sound that is perfect for strutting to. The song is almost entirely based on improvisation, which makes it a unique and interesting piece of music.

The song starts off with a funky bassline that sets the tone for the rest of the song. As the track progresses, the horns begin to play their melody, which is characterized by short phrasings and syncopated rhythms. The piano then kicks in with a bluesy solo that adds a touch of soul to the song. The drums provide an energetic beat that drives the song forward, and the horns continue to play their soulful melody throughout the track.

Overall, the song Cool Struttin' by Sonny Clark is a classic piece of jazz music that combines improvisation, intricate melodies, and harmonies to create an upbeat and fun tune. It is a perfect example of the cool jazz style that was popular during the 1950s and 1960s.

Sonny's solo is so killin'!!!! One of the greatest of all time


BOTH his solos are killin'!!! Love how he gets two solos on a few tracks on this album. I always feel more comfortable going last, but he goes first and last!
