Blues March
Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers Lyrics


'Look Alive Sunshine*
109 in the sky but the pigs wont quit
You’re here with me
Dr. DeathDefying
I’ll be you surgeon, your proctor, your helicopter
Pumping up the slaughtermatic sounds to keep you live
A system failure for the masses
Anti-matter for the master plan
Louder than god’s revolver and twice as shiny
This ones for all you rock and rollers
All you crash queens and motivators”
'LISTEN UP!
THE FUTURE IS BULLETPROOF!
THE AFTERMATH IS SECONDARY!
It’s time to do it now and do it loud
KILLJOYS, MAKE SOME NOISE!”
NA NA-NA-NA NA-NA-NA NANANANANANA
NA NA-NA-NA NA-NA-NA NANANANANANA
NA NA-NA-NA NA-NA-NA
NA-NA-NA NA-NA-NA
NA-NA-NA NA-NA-NA NA
NA NA-NA-NA NA-NA-NA
For My Security (NA-NA-NANANA)
(NA NA-NA-NA NA-NA-NA)
To to every enemy (NA-NA-NANANA)
(NA NA-NA-NA NA-NA-NA)
We’re on their property (NA-NA-NANANA)
Stand-ing-in-a-V-for-mat-ion
NA NA-NA-NA NA-NA-NA NA-NA-NA NA
NA NANANA NANANA
Drop like a bullet shell (NA-NA-NANANA)
NA NANANA NANANA
Just like a sleeper cell(NA-NA-NANANA)
NA NANANA NANANA
Id rather go to hell (NA-NA-NANANA)
Then be in a purgatory
Cut my hair
Gag and bore me
Pull this pin
Let this world
Ex-plode

Thanks for the info on the band members. I recently started listening to jazz - Dave Brubeck, Miles Davies and John Coltrane. I listened to Lee Morgan's Sidewindwer last night and thought the trumpet was brilliant and likewise on this album and now see it is the same wonderful musician

MERCI

Déjà le jazz est a un tournant,il annonce le hard bop,les années 60 sont fondamentales pour la suite du feuilleton et le renouveau!Monk,par exemple!...

Brian Coffey

The genius of Benny Golson, using the march meter to create a classic jazz tune. Benny Golson: Killer Joe, I Remember Clifford. And he's on sax.

I had a chance to see Benny Golson at Jazz Showcase in Chicago yesterday. He took time out from the performance to tell us the story of how this tune came to be. Golson was trying to address some of Art Blakey's frustrations by highlighting his drumming and felt the best way to do that was to channel some of the marching bands he'd seen in the south, particularly at Howard University, and pulling them into a song that allowed Blakey the playing time he was looking for. I think it worked.

Mitch Cole

ONE OF THE SWINGINEST BE-BOP AND POST-BOP DRUMMERS THERE EVER WAS----PLUS HE NURTURED GENERATIONS OF NEW TALENT WITH THE MESSENGERS A TRUE ICON AND GENIUS, GOD BLESS HIM

This is just one of the many fine compositions by Benny Golson.
