Moon river wider than a mile
I’m crossing you in style someday (someday, day)
A dream maker (maker, maker)
My heartbreaker (you heartbreaker)
Wherever you’re goin’, I’m goin’ that way (the same, the same)

Two drifters off to see the world
There’s such a crazy world to see
We’re all chasin’ after all the same
Chasing after our rainbow’s end

Moon river wider than a mile
Crossin’ in style someday
My dream maker
Wherever you’re going I’m going the same

Two drifters off to see the world
It’s such a crazy world you’ll see (What I see, who I become)
What I see, who I become
We’re all chasin’ after our end
Chasin’ after our ends

Life’s just around the bend, my friend
Moon river and me

plaisir (προς αφορισμένους): Το τραγούδι μιας παπαδιάς πτωχής

17/12/2017 § Σχολιάστε

Παραδοσιακός συρτός χορός

Μια παπαδιά στον αργαλειό
Τα πόδια της κουνάει
Και με παράπονο πολύ
Ετούτα τραγουδάει:

Ακούστε με γειτόνισσες
Και συγγενείς και ξένοι
Δεν τονε θέλω το παπά
Τον παλιο-τραγογένη

Γιατί δε “λειτουργεί” κι εμέ
Κάτω στην εκκλησιά του
Και ούτε έναν “αγιασμό”
Δεν κάνει στη καρδιά του

Δεν τονε θέλω το παπά
Τον τράγο με τα γένια
Μον’ θέλω τσομπανόπουλο
Να παίζει τη φλογέρα

Charles Edward «Charlie» Haden
(August 6, 1937 – July 11, 2014)


American jazz double bass player, bandleader, composer and educator known for his deep, warm sound, and whose career spanned more than fifty years. In the late 1950’s, Haden achieved early legendary status as an original member of the ground-breaking Ornette Coleman Quartet that turned the jazz world on its head.

Haden revolutionized the harmonic concept of bass playing in jazz. “His ability to create serendipitous harmonies by improvising melodic responses to Coleman’s free-form solos (rather than sticking to predetermined harmonies) was both radical and mesmerizing. His virtuosity lies…in an incredible ability to make the double bass ‘sound out’. Haden cultivates the instrument’s gravity as no one else in jazz. He is a master of simplicity which is one of the most difficult things to achieve.” (Author Joachim Berendt in The Jazz Book) Haden played a vital role in this revolutionary new approach, evolving a way of playing that sometimes complemented the soloist and sometimes moved independently.  [wikipedia]
