This song is a great representation of my friend situation this year. At the beginning of this year, my friend group that was very tight and supportive, split up. Our group got in a fight about including everyone, and ended up splitting in half. This was hard to go through, especially
Imagine a cup of tea on a rainy day and a phonograph right by your side. You would want to hear something relaxing and perhaps a note of romance. Nothing sounds better than Body and Soul performed by Hawkins and His Orchestra. With so many versions, the original plays best with a piano, bass, drums, alto and tenor saxophones as well as a trombone and trumpet. The next
The violins are my thoughts; the voices that continue to run back in forth, like a panic pulse without pause. The piano for me the comforter. The comparing of my life to some else's, saying that things could be worst. It is the soothing hug from my mum telling me everything is okay. The is cello my heavy breathing as my continue to stress about everything. At 1:20 the tempo rises; the violins expressing
The guitar solo provided more emotional support to the lyrics of the song. It wasn't loud and it wasn't soft. It was right in the middle. The song had a medium tempo and the dynamic of the song is soft to high and then back to soft.

In the song she says “she’ll go wherever he goes” it just reminds me of a child when I used to follow him everywhere he went. She says “you make me smile” and it was true he always made me smile and laugh all the time. Everything my grandpa did was funny, he always made everyone’s day. She says “stay for a while now, just take your time wherever you go” it would remind me of when my grandpa found out he had liver cancer, he stopped cold turkey because he wanted to be there for his grandchildren.
The beginning of the song starts with harmonious use of violins and cellos, not something someone would expect from this band, but the way the instrument fluctuated each note, it brought new emotion to the piece. A sudden pause after the strings brought an upbeat tempo of a exiliphone and the drums that
The instrumental playing in the background at 0:10 is very uplifting. It changed my mood around. There were many instruments being played. I couldn’t figure out all of the instruments that were being played. I did get to point out the guitar, piano, and percussion in the beginning, I believe.
This song was recorded with a piano which was unique because most free jazz groups did not use a piano. Although, there are some characteristics of the avant-garde jazz style present in this song. For instance, the saxophone players and trombonist used a range of low and high register sounds along with pitch bends to add colorations to the song. The tenor saxophone solos are littered with an assortment of pitch bends and at 1' 34" and 1' 58" the alto saxophone and trombone can be heard playing a sighing sound. The rhythm section alternated the rhythm during improvisations which created a steady and somewhat unsettled sound that actually complemented the melodies.
It starts with piano playing a few notes at a time with a double bass being finger picked in the background. A saxophone it sounds like replaces the beginning piano and joins in. The piano starts playing short quick notes. Ray Nance then starts playing a solo on his violin. The violin solo stops. Rex Stewart starts playing a trumpet solo. The trumpet stops. Ben Webster then starts playing a saxophone solo. The saxophone stops. Joe Nanton starts playing a trombone solo while using his mute to achieve different sounds. The trombone stops.
This song is an impactful experience for anyone who listens, if they know of its purpose or not. It displays a message further beyond their tribute to James, and shows how loss affects everyone. When somebody loses a person that was close to
This very slow song, so in my opinion I think it reinforces a sense of bittersweet, because even though she mentions how she wants to be remembered for the good things that she did she also mentions death and regrets in her song.
