Part IX

"When The Saints Go Marching In"


Mezz Mezzrow
came out of prison
in the early 40s
& wrote his autobiography,

Really The Blues,
started a record company
called King Jazz
& moved to France in the late 40s

where he spent the rest
of his life. Louis Armstrong went on
from their association in the 30s
to become the best-known musician

of his time he traveled the world
from Africa to Japan
& became known
as Ambassador Satch

on behalf of his efforts
to introduce the creative music of America
to the many peoples of Earth. His records
led the charts in the 30s

& 40s, & he scored pop hits into the 60s
with "Mack The Knife,"
"Hello Dolly," & "It's A
Wonderful World." His greatness

as a musician
& an American
has never been surpassed,
& his lifelong love of reefer

helped turn us all on
to the wonders of weed
& gave him the gift of grace
& humility beyond measure.

'Like I said,' Pops closes,
'I never have liked
a wrong harmony, going right back
to my earliest days,

as a kid
it just came natural. If I've got my horn
in my hand
then let's go.

Music's my language,
on all those trips
all over the world,
maybe the musicians

can't speak with you, but play "Struttin'
With Some Barbecue"
& they'll know their parts
& chime right in. I've got a million

happy memories. I'm satisfied with my work 
I play music 
you call it what you want to,
I don't try to prove nothing.
