Record Liner Notes

My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I started sharing poetry articles back in 2013. Every year I share a poem a day in April.

Record Liner Notes

Once there was a musician who wanted to lead a band.

So he set out to put one together.

Musically it was quite good.

But it failed.

A dynamic personality reaching out

the Philharmonic plays "A Magical Mood'

turning on a non-stop Calypso spout.

Musician, a Scottish Piper and Drummer, crude

melodies that will live for centuries

orchestra's on dusty turntable's etude.

To hear a modern reading of Oscar Wilde's 'Miseries"

there is only one manner to describe the readings of Robert Frost

his voice is heard on scratched album of his litanies.

To touch heart and soul of people but at what cost

our musicians free wheelin' swingers bringing the color

some New Orleans Jazz to remind us what was lost.

In this album he has recorded with the very men

with whom he always works.

These were not a collection of studio musicians

gathered together to back a great artist.

These are the men best suited to capture the "Soul."
