Need help deciphering words in a tune
So there's this label out in San Francisco called OM. Amazing sounds outta there! Around 2003 they put out a series of compilations titled OM Lounge. On OM Lounge 7 there's a track by an artist called Jaywalkers and the tune is called The Language Of Music.
Listen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtuzqrAEBig
So hear's the words, as far as I can understand (three XXXs mean a word I couldn't catch). It's a guy rapping about music with a short dialogue between two other guys at the end, all laid over one of the most beautiful fat-beats I've ever heard!
jazz music objectifies XXX, XXX it's an art form that can give us XXX [handiest?] way of understanding ourselves, the real power of jazz and
the innovation of jazz, is that a group of people can come together and create art - improvised art - and can negotiate their agendas with each other, and that negotiation is the art.
XXX [come with a?] plan XXX [of?] listening XXX you never know what they gonna do, so that's our art. The four of us[??] can now have a XXX dialogue we can have a conversation, we can speak to each other in the language of music. You talking about XXX XXX and the highest level of musicical sophistication, he was chosen to bring the feeling and the message and the activity of jazz to everybody, he brought it to all musicians he XXX[brought it?] XXX all over the world. He's the embodiment of jazz music. He said, 'oh, ok, I want to do that, I want
that rhythm and that beat'
That's the only way I can describe XXX you can't practice XXX. It's like it's a spiritual presence, that light is in your song xxx when you hear it XXX attraction. It's like it's a spiritual presence.
Second Speaker talking to another person:
The only way to sum-up music, ain't but two things in music; good, and bad. Now if it sounds good you don't worry what it is you just go on and enjoy it,
other person: mm-hmm
First person: see what I mean?
other person: yeah
First person: . . . and anything you can pat your foot to is good music
