Swing


Dick Tracy style soundtrack to your escape complete repackaging Cherry Poppin' Daddies

Sleazy P. Martini vodka extreme memory loss alcholic breakdown Creamy metallic Stadium Love.

 Tooth loss bone loss toothless people I'm Breathless 88 keys pianistic effete jazz european

lyricism jazzy fourths bebop berzerk self-immolation of notes tempo 288 fast swing the Gene

Krupa syncopated style Taxi Driver lonesome Diminished Wholteone scale clouds of smoke

nothing swings like eighth-notes nailing the downbeat with chord tones superimposition

harmonic substitution Interstellar Space Ascension freestyle throbbing quarter notes

incessant stab of ride cymbal and hi-hat staccatto crashes screaming brass junk-soaked

athletic marathon of 32nd note tuplets imaginary chord structures entire charts disgorged in

total recall skeletal hands clutch the saxophone encroaching dementia deafening.
