Sarah Vaughan

Sarah Vaughan by Emmett Williams

I gotta right to sing the blues
I gotta right to feel low-down
I gotta right to hang around
Down around the river

Some man in this ol’ town
Keeps draggin’ my po’ heart ’round
All I see, for me is – misery

I gotta right to sing the blues
I gotta right to moan and sigh
I gotta right to sit and cry
Down around the river

I know the deep blue sea
Will soon be callin’ me
It must be love – say what you choose
I gotta right to sing the blues…

Visual Sound

Visual Sound

Crowded figures play notes in a claustrophobic space, colors stream around them and notes pile into the air they breathe called Jazz. Saturated powerful phrases, the sexy-saxy falling notes, and growling horns compete for all the audience to hear the tremendous feat, a war of horns, piano and bass, not a drop of blood spilled in the whole damned place. Drinks flowed and cigars fumed as guys and dolls danced up the room. Whiskey, beer and champagne flowed through the speak easy all night long. Musicians played and torch singers scorched up some steamy sultry songs.

-E. A. WILLIAMS
