JAZZ

es un discurso que me dice todo
una charla entre amigos
“la alegría de vivir”
una terraza al infinito
en la tarde del mejor día
la discreción del sol
alejandose
y una estrella aparece
como siempre bella y distante

la voz de allá en la penumbra
saxofón grave
se lleva tiempo
en explicar lo que siente
al mirar la pintura del ocaso

jugueteando las baquetas
animan sin distraer
a seguir el rítmo de la discusión
que el piano entabla
al lado del contrabajo

un río de cerveza
acude al fondo
mientras el tarro se llena
la espuma
es la delicia que desaparece
al beberla

un cigarrillo
lleva horas esperando
ser encendido

la noche perdura
la charla sigue
un solo del piano
sincroniza la nostalgia
y el brillo lagrimoso
de unos ojos
en la penumbra

de repente alguien
empieza a hablar del silencio
y todos callan
ya es de madrugada
solo el sax insiste en la charla (RafaSoto )

This and his "In a Sentimental Mood" are beyond words. Some of the finest American music ever recorded.

@richard shepherd that is stupid since hip hop started with people sampling jazz music and putting some drums to it so yeah xD

@richard shepherd Not if they enjoy quality music. Many do, of course some don't. Not unlike fans of all music genres.

I knew Naima. This song conveys the feeling you had when with her. She had a calming influence and she was very wise. The beauty of this song is exactly like the beauty of her spirit. I can see why Trane loved her.
