Ah, That's It

It could be as small as just the tapping of your foot,
Or it could make you get up and dance—
Either way, jazz makes you feel like a million bucks.

The beat is infectious, spread through the air
Like a virus, weaving through crowds and making its way right into your body

It’s as complicated as “Donna Lee,”
And as simple as “One o’Clock Jump.”

There’s the Village Vanguard, Birdland
And Minton’s Playhouse

“Yeah man,” the listeners call out, filled with excitement
“Ah, that’s it,” cries another.
