… music, it is a “cause.”
“…Music, it is a “cause.” : For me, Josh, your music is more than music, it is a “cause.”
It is a cause for American values of diversity, creativity, and inspiration,
from Duke Ellington to Cole Porter,
from Hoagie Carmichael to Count Basie,
from Scott Joplin to Billy Joel,
from Gershwin (George and Ira) to Goodman (Benny),
your music is food for the soul,
music that can be listened to and enjoyed at a normal volume,
music that can be danced to, music with clever lyrics and unforgettable melodies,
music that never grows old, and allows a person to re-live memories by the hearing of these wonderful songs,
music that is romantic, comforting, and more.
There is nothing like jazz standards in this whole wide world.
The world had been made a much more enjoyable place by this music, and may its timeless elegance be played forever.
