    That's got his own

    Yes, the strong gets more
    While the weak ones fade
    Empty pockets don't ever make the grade
    Mama may have, Papa may have
    But God bless the child that's got his own
    That's got his own

    Money, you've got lots of friends
    Crowding round the door
    When you're gone, spending ends
    They don't come no more
    Rich relations give
    Crust of bread and such
    You can help yourself
    But don't take too much
    Mama may have, Papa may have
    But God bless the child that's got his own
    That's got his own

    Mama may have, Papa may have
    But God bless the child that's got his own
    That's got his own
    He just worry 'bout nothin'
    Cause he's got his own

  • So What - Miles Davis


    So What was the first track on the studio album Kind Of Blue by American jazz musician Miles Davis, released August 17, 1959 on Columbia Records. The recording sessions for the album took place at Columbia's 30th Street Studio in New York City on March 2 and April 22, 1959. The sessions featured Davis' ensemble sextet, which included pianists Bill Evans and Wynton Kelly, drummer Jimmy Cobb, bassist Paul Chambers, and saxophonists John Coltrane and Julian 'Cannonball' Adderley. After the inclusion of Bill Evans into his sextet, Davis followed up on the modal experimentations of Milestones (1958) and 1958 Miles (1958) by basing the album entirely on modality, in contrast to his earlier work with the hard bop style of jazz. Though precise figures have been disputed, Kind Of Blue has been cited by many music writers not only as Davis' best-selling album, but as the best-selling jazz record of all time. On October 7, 2008, it was certified quadruple platinum in sales by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). It has been regarded by many critics as the greatest jazz album of all time and Davis' masterpiece, and it has been ranked at or near the top of several 'best album' lists in disparate genres. The album's influence on music, including jazz, rock and classical music, has led music writers to acknowledge it as one of the most influential albums of all time. In 2002, it was one of fifty recordings chosen that year by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry. In 2003, the album was ranked number 12 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, Miles Davis was, with his musical groups, at the forefront of several major developments in jazz music including cool jazz, hard bop, free jazz and fusion. Many well-known jazz musicians made their names as members of Davis' ensembles, including John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans, Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea, John McLaughlin, Julian 'Cannonball' Adderley, Gerry Mulligan, Tony Williams, George Coleman, J.J. Johnson, Keith Jarrett and Kenny Garrett. Miles Davis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. This channel is dedicated to the classic jazz music you've loved for years.

    Join our Facebook:
    Edward Kennedy Duke Ellington (April 29, 1899 -- May 24, 1974) was a USA composer, pianist and bandleader of jazz-orchestras. His career spanned over 50 years, leading his orchestra from 1923 until death.
    Though widely considered to have been a pivotal figure in the history of jazz, Ellington himself embraced the phrase beyond category as a liberating principle, and referred his music to the more general category of American Music, rather than to a musical genre such as jazz. Born in Washington, D.C., he was based in New York City from the mid-1920s onwards, and gained a national profile through his orchestra's appearances at the Cotton Club. In the 1930s they toured in Europe.

  • Charlie Parker: Star Eyes


    Charles Charlie Parker, Jr. (August 29, 1920 -- March 12, 1955), also known as Yardbird and Bird, was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Parker acquired the nickname Yardbird early in his career and the shortened form, Bird, which continued to be used for the rest of his life, inspired the titles of a number of Parker compositions, such as Yardbird Suite, Ornithology, Bird Gets the Worm, and Bird of Paradise. Parker was a highly influential jazz soloist and a leading figure in the development of bebop, a form of jazz characterized by fast tempos, virtuosic technique, and improvisation. Parker introduced revolutionary harmonic ideas, including rapid passing chords, new variants of altered chords, and chord substitutions. His tone ranged from clean and penetrating to sweet and somber. Many Parker recordings demonstrate virtuosic technique and complex melodic lines, sometimes combining jazz with other musical genres, including blues, Latin, and classical. Parker was an icon for the hipster subculture and later the Beat Generation, personifying the jazz musician as an uncompromising artist and intellectual, rather than an entertainer...

  • Stan Getz & Charlie Byrd - Desafinado


    Desafinado, a Portuguese word (usually rendered into English as Out of Tune, or as Off Key), is the title of a bossa nova song composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim with lyrics (in Portuguese) by Newton Mendonça. The English language lyrics were written by Jon Hendricks and Jessie Cavanaugh. Another English lyric, more closely based on the original Portuguese lyric (but not a translation) was written by Gene Lees, and appears on some recordings as well. The version by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd (from the album Jazz Samba) was a major hit in 1962, reaching 15 and 4 on Billboard's pop and easy-listening charts, respectively; their definitive rendering also reached No 11 in the UK, Ella Fitzgerald's version ranked number 38 on the charts.

    Jazz Samba is a bossa nova LP by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd, released on the Verve label on April 20, 1962. Jazz Samba was the first major bossa-nova album on the American jazz scene. It was the real start of the bossa-nova excitement in America, which peaked in the mid-1960s. Though Stan Getz was the featured star of the album, it was very strongly inspired and designed by the guitarist Charlie Byrd. They were joined by two bassists (Keter Betts and Charlie's brother, Gene (Joe) Byrd), and two drummers (Buddy Deppenschmidt and Bill Reichenbach) for the recording at All Souls Church, Unitarian in Washington, D.C. on February 13, 1962, and it was released on April 20, that year as Verve LP V6-8432.

    Although it is often described as music by Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, only two of the seven tracks on the album are Jobim compositions (Desafinado [Slightly Out of Tune] and Samba de Uma Nota Só [One Note Samba]), the rest being by other Brazilian composers and by Charlie Byrd. Getz won the Grammy for Best Jazz Performance of 1963 for the track Desafinado, and went on to make many other bossa-nova recordings, most notably with João Gilberto and Astrud Gilberto, and most famously The Girl From Ipanema.

    When I try to sing you say I'm off key
    Why can't you see how much this hurts me
    With your perfect beauty and your perfect pitch
    You're a perfect terror
    When I come around must you always put me down

    If you say my singing is off key my love
    You will hurt my feelings don't you see my love
    I wish I had an ear like yours
    A voice that would behave
    But all I have is feelings and a voice gone deaf

    You insist my music goes against the rules
    But rules were never meant for lovesick fools
    I wrote this little song for you but you don't care
    Its a crooked song oh but all my love is there

    The thing that you would see if you would play your part
    Is even if I'm out of tune I have a gentle heart
    I took your picture with my trusty rollaflex
    And now all I have developed is a complex

    Possibly in vain I hope you weaken oh my love
    And forget these rigid rules that undermine my dream of
    A life of love and music with someone who'll understand
    That even though I may be out of tune
    When I attempt to say how much I love you
    All that matters is the message that I bring
    Which is my dear one I love you

  • Duke Ellington - It dont mean a thing


    Duke Ellington and his orchestra playing this awesome tune in 1943.

    It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing) is a 1931 composition by Duke Ellington with lyrics by Irving Mills, now accepted as a jazz standard. The music was written and arranged by Ellington in August 1931 during intermissions at Chicago's Lincoln Tavern and was first recorded by Ellington and his orchestra for Brunswick Records (Br 6265) on February 2, 1932. Ivie Anderson sang the vocal and trombonist Joe Nanton and alto saxophonist Johnny Hodges played the instrumental solos. The title was based on the oft stated credo of Ellington's former trumpeter Bubber Miley, who was dying of tuberculosis. The song became famous, Ellington wrote, as the expression of a sentiment which prevailed among jazz musicians at the time. Probably the first song to use the phrase swing in the title, it introduced the term into everyday language and presaged the Swing Era by three years. The Ellington band played the song continuously over the years and recorded it numerous times, most often with trumpeter Ray Nance as vocalist.

    Recorded live at the Half Note, New York, New York and Van Gelder Studios, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey in June and September 1965.

    Personnel: Wes Montgomery (guitar); Wynton Kelly (piano); Paul Chambers (bass instrument); Jimmy Cobb (drums).

    Recording information: Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey; 1965.

    This album is the live equivalent of the INCREDIBLE GUITAR album--Wes Montgomery cooking with a seasoned and communicative piano trio on a set of jazz compositions, standards, and original material. INCREDIBLE GUITAR has Tommy Flanagan, Percy Heath, and Albert Heath; SMOKIN' has the Wynton Kelly trio, with Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums. Not only had the same trio served as one of Miles Davis' great rhythm sections, but Kelly was considered by many to be the most gifted accompanist of his time.

    Miles Davis's No Blues is in fact an utterly relentless blues, with Montgomery nailing each single-note, octave, or block-chord phrase with passionate conviction. Bassist Sam Jones's Unit 7 is another uptempo blues. Four on Six, which debuted on INCREDIBLE GUITAR, gets an edited version of the head and a slightly faster treatment overall. Kelly takes the lead on the first ballad, If You Could See Me Now, Montgomery on the second, framing the melody to What's New in octaves over Cobb's late-night brushes. The excellent sound quality and almost complete lack of audience noise throughout makes SMOKIN' feel like eavesdropping of the best kind.

    Lyrics written by Annie Ross.
    Music written by Wardell Gray.

    My analyst told me
    that I was right out of my head
    The way he described it
    he said I'd be better dead than live
    I didn't listen to his jive
    I knew all along that he was all wrong
    And I knew that he thought I was crazy
    But I'm not,
    oh no

    My analyst told me
    that I was right out of my head
    He said I need treatment
    but I'm not that easily led
    He said I was the type that was most inclined
    When out of his sight to be out of my mind
    And he thought I was nuts
    No more ifs or ands or buts

    They say as I child I appeared a little bit wild
    With all my crazy ideas, but I knew what was happening
    I knew I was a genius
    What's so strange
    When you know that you're a wizard at three
    I knew that this was meant to be

    Now I heard little children were supposed to sleep tight
    That's why I got into the vodka one night
    My parents got frantic didn't know what to do
    But I saw some crazy scenes before I came to
    Now do you think I was crazy
    I may have been only three, but I was swinging

    They all laughed at A. Graham Bell, they all laughed at Edison
    And also at Einstein, so why should I feel sorry
    If they just couldn't understand the idiomatic logic
    That went on in my head, I had a brain, it was insane
    Oh they used to laugh at me when I'd refuse to ride
    On all those double-decker buses
    All because there was no driver on the top

    What, no driver on the top?
    Man the chick is twisted, crazy, moogie-shoogie, idiot flip city!

    My analyst told me
    that I was right out of my head
    But I said dear doctor
    I think that it's you instead
    Because I've got a thing that's unique and new
    To prove that I'll have the last laugh on you
    'Cause instead of one head
    I've got two
    And you know two heads are better than one

  • Dizzy Gillespie - Con Alma


    Con Alma is a jazz standard written by Dizzy Gillespie. It incorporates aspects of bebop jazz and Latin rhythm, and is known for its frequent changes in key centers (occurring every two bars), while still maintaining a singable melody. Versions have been recorded by Oscar Peterson, Wes Montgomery, Ed Bickert, Stan Getz and Kenny Burrell. The song was recorded by Chaka Khan in 1982 as part of the Be Bop Medley from her album Chaka Khan.

    John Birks Dizzy Gillespie (October 21, 1917 -- January 6, 1993) was an American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, composer and occasional singer. Allmusic's Scott Yanow wrote, Dizzy Gillespie's contributions to jazz were huge. One of the greatest jazz trumpeters of all time (some would say the best), Gillespie was such a complex player that his contemporaries ended up copying Miles Davis and Fats Navarro instead, and it was not until Jon Faddis's emergence in the 1970s that Dizzy's style was successfully recreated. Arguably Gillespie is remembered, by both critics and fans alike, as one of the greatest jazz trumpeters of all time.

    Gillespie was a trumpet virtuoso and improviser, building on the virtuoso style of Roy Eldridge but adding layers of harmonic complexity previously unknown in jazz. His beret and horn-rimmed spectacles, his scat singing, his bent horn, pouched cheeks and his light-hearted personality were essential in popularizing bebop.

    Gillespie's trademark trumpet featured a bell which bent upward at a 45-degree angle rather than pointing straight ahead as in the conventional design. According to Gillespie's autobiography, this was originally the result of accidental damage caused by the dancers Stump and Stumpy falling onto it while it was on a trumpet stand on stage at Snookie's in Manhattan on January 6, 1953, during a birthday party for Gillespie's wife Lorraine. The constriction caused by the bending altered the tone of the instrument, and Gillespie liked the effect. He had the trumpet straightened out the next day, but he could not forget the tone. Gillespie sent a request to Martin Committee to make him a bent trumpet from a sketch produced by Lorraine, and from that time forward Gillespie played a trumpet with an upturned bell. Gillespie's biographer Alyn Shipton writes that Gillespie probably got the idea for a bent trumpet when he saw a similar instrument in 1937 in Manchester, England, while on tour with the Teddy Hill Orchestra. According to this account (from British journalist Pat Brand) Gillespie was able to try out the horn and the experience led him, much later, to commission a similar horn for himself.

    Whatever the origins of Gillespie's upswept trumpet, by June 1954, he was using a professionally manufactured horn of this design, and it was to become a visual trademark for him for the rest of his life.

    A longtime resident of Englewood, New Jersey, he died of pancreatic cancer January 6, 1993, aged 75, and was buried in the Flushing Cemetery, Queens, New York. Mike Longo delivered a eulogy at his funeral. He was also with Gillespie on the night he died, along with Jon Faddis and a select few others.

    At the time of his death, Gillespie was survived by his widow, Lorraine Willis Gillespie; a daughter, jazz singer Jeanie Bryson; and a grandson, Radji Birks Bryson-Barrett. Gillespie had two funerals. One was a Bahá'í funeral at his request, at which his closest friends and colleagues attended. The second was at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York open to the public.

    In December 1986 Gillespie gave the National Museum of American History his 1972 King Silver Flair trumpet with a Cass mouthpiece. In April 1995, Gillespie's Martin trumpet was auctioned at Christie's in New York City, along with instruments used by other famous musicians such as Coleman Hawkins, Jimi Hendrix and Elvis Presley. An image of Gillespie's trumpet was selected for the cover of the auction program. The battered instrument sold to Manhattan builder Jeffery Brown for $63,000, the proceeds benefiting jazz musicians suffering from cancer.

    Dizzy's accompanied by José Manguel (bongos); Gilberto Valdez (flute); Rafael Miranda (percussion), Rene Hernandez (piano); and Ubaldo Nieto (timbales). Recorded June 3, 1954 at Fine Sound, New York City. (Verve Records)
