I Will Be Back!


There they were on the stage,

The drummer starts drumming,

Memories of Jean Krupa

Came into my body,

As he played the introduction,

The introduction to ‘Sing, sing, sing’.

Such a  wonderful start to the evening,

An evening filled with music,

With such wonderful music

Played by this wonderful band.

The music of Swing flowed,

Flowed from their instruments

Played with such joy

Which captured the audience

By the way they played,

And enjoyed their playing.

The evening just shot by,

They seemed to finish so fast

But we have been there,

Been there listening for two hours

Embedded in the wonder of their playing,

Which took me into a beautiful world,

A beautiful world of jazz,

Jazz that has been with me,

With me all my long life.

All I can say is thank you,

But it does not seem enough,

Just two words is not enough

For the joy you gave to me

On that wonderful evening.

But I do have more words,

More words for ‘Down for the Count’.

“I will be back!”

  • Comment from author about the poem: We went to see this band, Down for the Count again last night, it is the fourth time we have seen them in the last 18 months and they are superb and enjoyed every moment of their music. They opened the concert with the music shown on the video.
