A Song Prompt That’s a Study in Contrasts


Again, I gotta thank mskatykins for this prompt recommendation. I chose a version of the song that offers a study in contrasts. I hope you enjoy “Bizet Had His Day” as performed in Tokyo by Jolly Fellow’s Jazz Orchestra.

September’s First Song Prompt — Jazz


A big, fat, sloppy, wet thank you (bet you thought a kiss was coming) to mskatykins for suggesting this song. I am listening to it as I write this post. I hope when the time comes for me to write the story it prompts, I remember the storyline running through my head now. It is hilarious. Anyway, see what images your mind conjures up when you listen to “Slow Drag” by Donald Byrd. There’s so much going on to stimulate creation.
