Cannonball Adderley Lyrics

And now the purple dusk of twilight time
Steals across the meadows of my heart
High up in the sky the little stars climb
Always reminding me that we're apart
You wander down the lane and far away
Leaving me a song that will not die
Love is now the stardust of yesterday
The music of the years gone by.

Sometimes I wonder, how I spend
The lonely nights
Dreaming of a song
The melody
Haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago
And now my consolation is in the stardust of a song

Besides the garden wall, when stars are bright
You are in my arms
The nightingale
Tells his fairytale
Of paradise, where roses grew
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain.

so pure just a sweet tone cannonball had but allso had a big fat round blues tone the mans playing was class and so dam real,


Wonderful playing. This is jazz storytelling at its best.

Inez Patino

Tthis is absolute friggin' paradise!

Ole Birger Pedersen

For me the greatest storytellers on the altosax were: Johnny Hodgers, Charlie Parker, Sonny Stitt and Cannonball Adderley . They all had the same gift as Lester Young, beeing able to creat new melodies over the existing tunes. What a musiical inspiring gift to spent us. THANK YOU ALL.

Been on a little Stardust trip tonight and I do believe this is now my favourite version.

Michael Sherman

No better rendition in my humble opinion. The phrasing. The way of emoting is soul stirring for those of a kindred spirit. 4am driving my Love to work. Feeling the cool air rush through me with a simple joy. Incomparable.
