Now it's jazz,



"Now itís jazz, the place is roaring, all beautiful girls in there, one mad brunette at the bar drunk with her boys Ė one strange chick I remember from somewhere, wearing a simple skirt with pockets, her hands in there, short haircut, slouched, talking to everybody Ė Up and down the stairs they come the bartenders are the regular brand of Jack, and the heavenly drummer who looks up in the sky with blue eyes, with a beard, is wailing beercaps of bottles and jamming on the cash register and everything is going to the beat ó itís the beat generation, itís beat. Itís the beat to keep, itís the beat of the heart, itís being beat and down in the world and like old-time lowdown and like in ancient civilizations the slave boat- men rowing galleys to a beat and servants spinning pottery to a beat."

2. Well, you-tube naturally,

buts its from On The Road, set to some clowning drunken Kerouac footage I presume. (There's no shortage of sad documentary of it. Just went down hill from 1957-ish onward)

4. ya know...

personally the blues found me: it resonated, it made sense, then I discovered Kerouac and be-bop, and far beyond... and that was for my soul. No looking back. Just live in the moment.
