Gentle jazz piano with vocals .
I was going to have a break from songwriting tonight .
But an idea came into my head with some gentle Jazz chords and a kind of late night cocktail lounge song with lyrics started emerging - so i thought that i better just record it and see what comes of it .
I've been exploring and playing with a variety of sounds and instrumentation and styles during this FAWM and i'm enjoying it very much . Every song is different and im just allowing myself the freedom to extend out into a range of styles and approaches . Thanks for listening . Cheers Mark x

1.Love is a song
That can be sung in countless ways
It can be bright and gay
Or low key and restrained
Everyone holds some memory dear
Of a time in their life
When love was near
2. Like a bluebird
That appears out of nowhere
And perches on your shoulder
It can fly off
When you are least aware
3. One of the blessings of this life
Is the incandescent light (of love)
It can keep us warm
When our memory grows dim
When we find ourselves all alone
4. And the greatest lesson of life
Is still the one Nat King Cole taught us
It is to love and be loved in return.
