"Trust" by Rolanda Pyle

A Tribute to Daddy's Music

Ella jumps

Sarah’s sassy

Billie thumps

Carmen’s brassy

Gloria croons

Aretha’s queen

Gladys booms

Diana’s supreme!

Nat’s king

Jimmy plays

Marvin sings

John sways

Miles blows

Nancy’s mellow

Ray crows

Patti bellows!

Jazz strokes

Gospel provokes

Calypso whines

Reggae shines

Blues soothes

R&B smooths

Rap grooves

Music makes me want to move!

Learned to listen at Daddy’s feet

Where he would listen to different beats

Learned to appreciate with Daddy’s ear

All kinds of music I would hear.

Learned that music was in his heart

That’s how my love for music got its start.

             

(Note: A tribute to the music my father listened to, especially JAZZ!  Also a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday, Carmen McCrae, Gloria Lynne, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Diana Ross, Nat King Cole, Jimmy Smith, Marvin Gaye, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Nancy Wilson, Ray Charles and Patti LaBelle, who I listened to as I grew up. - RTP)
