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”
