|In honor of all who love Jazz|
He was so cool and very calculated With a warm embracing tone And a stunning dexterity This sax player at the Green door. Had a brisk tempo to match his play. Softly but vigorously blowing his sax To make his audience glad and mellow. This Sax Player at the Green door. He had a joyous love for people One could sense it through his notes With the colored lights blending with the notes This Sax player at the Green door. He could navigate space and timing With high and low and medium notes While the Bass went off in a Boom Boom Boom This Sax Player at the Green door. Casually strolling to the Piano There for a drink and to wipe his brow To say hello to a patron or two This Sax player at the Green door. Knowing just when to get back to the beat He would sashay back to the center on time To follow the beat one more time This Sax Player at the Green door. Such an uncanny precision now in a dialogue with the band Followed by an applause from the audience This is Raw and unadulterated Jazz, pure and simple Jazz As played by the Sax Player at the Green door.
