Swing (tanka)*

this love so in tune~

a rhythm rarely played off key~

leaps in harmony~

joined in expressed happiness~

hands reach for one another

lg/25032020

*Note: Swing is an era in music from 1933–1947, when teenagers and young adults danced to jazz-orientated bands.

When jazz orchestras dominated pop charts and when influential clarinettists were household names. In the Mood was first recorded in 1939 by Glenn Miller. I’m a fan of big band music. For me there has always been this strong connection to the β€˜30s and β€˜40s, perhaps i lived there in another lifetime. I choose the piano version, it worked with the art. Don’t worry here is the original by Glenn Miller. This also shows all the different dance moves (be patient they come in between the photos from that era) in the video are fantabulous!!

Take care, be safe. 🌎✌🏻❀️

*Note: I give you for your listening enjoyment Clair de lune’

by Claude Debussy who was a French composer. He is sometimes seen as the first Impressionist composer, although he vigorously rejected the term. He was among the most influential composers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Debussy took the title from an atmospheric poem by the French poet Paul Verlaine which depicts the soul as somewhere full of music ‘in a minor key’ where birds are inspired to sing by the ‘sad and beautiful’ light of the moon, it was inspiration for the composition. I wish I knew who the artist is of this piece, it’s signed however I could not make out the name. It seems to be a watercolor with some ink, it is beautifully done.
