In Walked Bud
Thelonious Monk Lyrics


Dizzie, he was screaming
Next to O.P. who was beaming
Monk was thumping
Suddenly in walked Bud and then they got into Somethin'

Oscar played a mean sax
Mr. Byers blew a mean axe
Monk was thumping
Suddenly in walked Bud
And then the joint started jumping

Every hip stud really dug Bud
Soon as he hit town
Takin’ that note nobody wrote
Putting it down

Dizzie he was screaming
Next to O. P. who was beaming
Monk was thumping
Suddenly in walked Bud
And then they got into something

Hello koast 1..Essa sua postagem levou a mais de 100
comentários. O que foi muito bom. Só achei que não falaram
muito do trabalho do excelente
contrabaixista Ahmed Abdul
Malik. Em julho de 1961, Malik como integrante do grupo
American Jazz Festival esteve
no Brasil. Eles tocaram em São
Paulo e no.Rio de Janeiro.
No Rio. onde eu morava foi perguntado a Malik sobre o
que ele achou desse set no
Five Spot Cafe em 1958.
Ele respondeu I don't know
but it was good. Não precisava
dizer mais nada.

My heart is sad and lonely
For you I sigh, for you dear only
Why haven't you seen it
I'm all for you body and soul

I spend my days in longing
And wondering why it's me you're wronging
I tell you I mean it
I'm all for you body and soul

I can't believe it
It's hard to conceive it
That you'd turn away romance
Are you pretending
It looks like the ending
Unless I could have just one more chance to prove, dear

My life a wreck you're making
You know I'm yours for just the taking
I'd gladly surrender myself to you body and soul

My life a wreck you're making
You know I'm yours for the very taking
I'd gladly surrender myself to you body and soul

Just so you know, Thelonious Monk and Bud Powell were best friends.

This one is about how he felt when Bud walked into the room. Just listen to the first few notes. Off tone and at a very strange timing. Just like when a certain friend of mine walks into the room and ups the conversation several notches and more.

I hope everyone is lucky enough to have a friend like that.

I've heard a different version of how this song came about. Apparently Bud walked into a jam session very late one night when he was extremely drunk and started a fight which turned into a bar room brawl. I have no idea if that is true - but it is the story our guitar player gave us when he introduced us to the song... I always thought it was a happy song, so I'm not so sure ;)
