Artist's Description

One of the flowers from my show and poems for her.

There was a club back in Manhattan’s upper West side where they had Jazz called Mikell’s it was a cool spot for great jazz. And unexpected entertainer’s just popped in and took over the nights entertainment and sing for hours!
I miss them days on 97th Street and Columbus Ave this is a tribute to them days.

Hey Baby what took ya so long? You missed some singing tonight!
Them sweet singing sister were up on stage giving Billie Holiday justice tonight .
I think if Billy were in this joint she would of been down on her knees giving praise to them three lovely sisters.
Those three sweet sisters let it all out tonight even the minister got fired up!
An then he really got started singing along with each song, and then he started shouting an praising the Lord.
One of the guest here had to help the man out he was jumping and screaming so loud!
And this ain’t even sunday but his butt was jumping so I know tomorrows service is gonna be hot.
I told you don’t be missing this show here tonight, its not what you thought it would be.
I guess when I told you it was midnight mass you thought we were reading the bible!
But ooooooh it was religious the spirt was here tonight!
This place was jumping with so much delight it would rock even the dead.
They started out with their old melody’s that took us back to the time there was slavery.
And then they relaxed as we wiped all the tears, and the mood they improved with some Dixie.
Damn man why wasn’t you here you miss one hell of a show?
I am still shaking and my ears are still ringing from all the yelling and clapping they got!
So after they did Dixie they went even darker and sung a few tunes by Ella and baby that’s when this whole place started to rock.
And then they hit on a classy duet with some cat that could really sing his voice sounded like Sam Cooke.
And his voice was a lion as he matched each one of them with his scatting on two of their hottest numbers.
My man it was something too bad that you missed it but thats how it always go’s.
But that was the first half and then came the second but before that the folks hit the door!
This place was on fire and we all went for a breather just to get a little fresh air.
As we stood all around there was steam in the air that singing had everyone on fire!
I tell ya it was something you missed my good friend, but maybe its on somebody’s phone!
I never saw nothing like this in my life them phones looked like candle’s tonight!
Everyone was waving them things in the air, just to get one moment of this!
Damn man it a shame but my phones in the car but it’s all still fresh in my mind.
So they came out in the second all dressed up in pink satin, looking like 3 summer roses.
My God even their hair was looking sexy tonight as if they just stepped out the parlor.
And them pink pretty Gowns that they wore to ground made a music of its own as they moved.
It was really fantastic to see them tonight, but the color they wore was such a visual delight it was as if the gown was the star up on stage.
And as they came to the mike and started a tune the lights went down low and the whole place went black except the lights on their pink satin gowns!
As the light lit them up and that pink sprayed the room all you heard was the audience gasp.
But their singing was bold like the gowns that they wore as they complemented each other tonight!
My goodness I can’t tell you all of this now,my baby’s waiting for me in the hall.
But sorry you missed it but maybe next time you’ll make sure you have your ass here on time!
