Lyrics
Maybe I don't know
How the moon began
Its love affair with earth
Maybe I don't know
How the oceans held
The secrets of life's birth

But baby I do know
That there's no other man
Can take me in his arms and be
All the wonders I can see

Maybe I don't know
How the bumblebee
Learned how to fly
Maybe I don't know
How the flowers
Lured that bee into the sky

::Fantastic piano and guitar duet::

But baby I do know
That there's no other man
Can take me in his arms and be
All the wonders I can see

Heaven sends its stardust
Into every night
You and I, we are just
2000° Fahrenheit
When we pass
Dust turns to glass

Maybe I don't know
How a bird can find
Its way back every year
Maybe I don't know
If that bird has got
A lover far and near

But baby I do know
That there's no other man
Can take me in his arms and be
All the wonders I can see

Everything
This song is the whole package, great musicianship, vocals and the
lyrics are an abolutely perfect interpretation of the music. Wotta team!

Joanna, I don't think I've ever heard you sound this good, and that's
saying a lot. You have wonderful phrasing and such a nice, gentle
delivery of your terrific words.
Joanna said 4165 days ago (January 1st, 2006)
Everything
Aw, ledeb, thank you so much! I did do some experimentation with phrasing
in this song, and I'm so happy to hear that it worked out.

The jazz wonder trio
Delightful collab ... really excellent. Joanna, your voice is just perfect
for this. And the beautiful instrumentation is just what you needed to
really showcase your voice. Wonderfully played piano and guitar. Great
job you guys! I hope you'll do more of these.

Love that piano
real ten fingered stuff. Some very nice jazz guitar as well. Smoky vox on
top and a smooth mix.

Tasty

Thank you, Al! Daphna's keyboards were extraordinary in this piece, IMO.
Both she and Mcboy are amazing talents.

Ed Hannifin said 4194 days ago (December 4th, 2005)
Awfully, awfully, awfully...
...good...

Lovely laid back and in the pocket feel...

The vocal is remarkable. I did that silly thing of reading the lyrics first
and not thinking I'd go for the song... The vocal INHABITS the lyrics,
brings 'em to life, puts a real person in there... Great phrasing...

Not being a super knowledgeable jazz fan, I can only compare to the
bits I've heard of things... the piano tone reminds me of that Les
McCann "Compared To What" from Montreux...

You folks have done a terrific job with this...

Ed
Joanna said 4163 days ago (January 4th, 2006)
Awfully, awfully, awfully...
Thank you so much, Ed! That's one of the nicest things anyone's said to me.
I'm so happy you gave the song a chance.

Awesome collab here!
Very tight little group you got here... Daphne's wonderfully fitting
piano/bass playing jazz, Mcboy's/Alley-oop's beautiful guitar work,
and of course, Joanna's fun lyrics and great sultry voice, all come
together to be perfect... there's only one thing missing in this... I
actually expected to hear, as the song faded, a huge round of applause
from the crowd! This actually sounded live to me. Wonderful job you
all did! Faved/DLed!
ttfn,
Drakonis

So when is this group going to play a club near me?
Cool live feel. The musicianship and voice make me think of dark, smoke
filled halls, and alcohol. And lots of people moving their heads in time to
the music.

Shades of Jobim
I hate gin, but it makes me want a martini, and a smoking jacket, and a
cool bachelor pad... Very smooth. Was just thinking about Joanna's voice
last night, and how well it works in these smooth jazz context. Great
production instincts Alley.

Great song!
I listened to this one when it came out and liked it a lot but got
"yanked" away from my computer and didn't leave a comment.
It's great to hear your voice put together with real
instrumentation again... it balances out nicely with your rich voice!

Holy cow.
I thought we were supposed to be amongst amateurs here! This is professional quality. Beautiful everything. Guitar, piano chops galore, vocals beautiful, all wrapped up in a beautiful production package! I'm not a jazz fan, but this is REALLY good.

Unequivocal lesson plan for love
Joanna: I like the scatting....buzzabuzza. You sing with absolute surety.
I love the contour of your voice... like finest coarse wheat, not
overprocessed, teeming with natural minerals and vitamins. Daphna
and McBoy also play with absolute surety. You make a splendid trio. It's
like I'm there, enjoying a live performance, front and center.
Heidi_E said 4160 days ago (January 6th, 2006)

Your voice suits the song extremely well. I like deeper tones in vocals it
adds something i think! Great work!

What a birthday gift
This wonderful track came out on my 50th birthday, even tho I was in the
ICU with my father and missed it until now. But I feel like it is a sort of
belated birthday gift. What a fun collaboration and heartwarming track.
Delightful. And thank you, even if you didn't intend it to be such a fine
gift.

Boris the Bull said 4138 days ago (January 29th, 2006)
thoughts from the bull
i've been listening to this song since i got a sneak preview before its
release (lucky me!!!). i missed the posting to MacJams and upon my
return, i came to this page first.

there's not much more to say about the song that hasn't already been
said. in my opinion, this may arguably be the finest song i've come
across in any online music community. it's that good.

thought you've dabbled in several genres, which in their own right are
wonderful, it is clear to me that the smokey jazz lounge genre is right
where you are at home. it's a rare place to be, too... reserved only for
those with enough life experience, hardened passion, and the
intolerance for the lesser side of life.

a pure achievement from everyone's contributions, and a masterpiece
on all levels, in my opinion. congratulations on this to you all, but for
you joanna for giving it your smoove groove.
