JAZZ AIN'T NOTHIN' BUT SOUL Norman Mapp as rec by Betty Carter w Richard Weiss & his Orch 1960 Jazz is makin' do with 'taters and grits, Standin' up each time you get hip, Jazz ain't nothin' but soul! Jazz is livin' high off nickels and dimes, Telling folks 'bout what's on your mind, Jazz ain't nothin' but soul! Trumpets, cassettes, slide trombone, Rhythm, makin' love, People wearin' fancy clothes, It's the voice of my people! For me, jazz is all the truth to be found, Never mind who's puttin' it down, Jazz ain't nothin' but soul! Jazz ain't nothin' but soul! Jazz ain't nothin' but soul! Chocolates, coffee, saxophones, Rhythm, makin' love, People wearin' fancy clothes, It's the voice of my people! For me, jazz is all the truth to be found, Never mind who's puttin' it down, Jazz ain't nothin' but soul! (Contributed by Peter Akers - March 2010)
