Jazzland Lyrics & Music: Daphna Levy Jazzland, you were always there to help it all come through Your sounds have lured me and your sights did too And got me where I’m going. Jazz was new, it came from hardships with a vibe so true On Southern fields where love and hatred grew A moment’s peace not knowing. We never even had to introduce ourselves My people have had their share of it too Yearning to be free, exiles like me Will Dr. King’s dream ever come true? Jazzland, you, in times of puzzlement would give a clue Who would I be now if it weren’t for you You lead me where I’m going.

Jazz Band In Heaven Lyrics & Music: Ken Morrison If there’s a jazz band in heaven 
 And I really hope there is 
 A place where Bird can still be heard 
 Tradin’ fours with Diz
 Picture Bix and Miles and Satchmo 
 Where the saints go marchin’ in
 A trumpet trinity, that’s divinity 
 That can wash away your sin. 

 Mama bless my soul that’s Jelly Roll
 Jammin’ with Cannonball
 Nat King Cole and Philly Joe
 With St. Peter and St. Paul Sittin’ in with Prez and Monk and Trane 
 Think of all the tunes they’d call 
If there’s a jazz band in heaven, 
 I bet Ella’s the belle of the ball. 
If there’s a jazz band in heaven 
I'd love to hear them play 
 To see Stan Getz call the sets 
 With Dex and Wardell Gray 
 Lordy be…I’m on bended knee 
 And this is what I pray 
 To jam with that jazz band in heaven 
 That’d be one hell of a day.

 If there’s a jazz band in heaven 
Led by Benny, Count, and Duke 
 Let me have a look 
 Cause they wrote the book 
 Like Matthew, Mark, and Luke
 Let me pose one question to ya
 Do you believe, my brother, do ya? 
 If there’s a jazz band in heaven 
 We’ll all shout “Hallelujah”
Late Night Journey Lyrics & Music: Daphna Levy Late night journey is the spirit of a song Always yearning for a way to carry on I'll capture the moonlight Orchestrate its beams within my soul. Late night journey gives some meaning to it all. I've seen the spirits, hazy melodies from afar I've met my limits where the strangest notions are Weaving bar to bar. Late night  journey in a realm where truths unfold. Look - I'm turning, and you're nowhere to behold.
