Nadja Stoller Trio Lyrics

Goodbye Pork Pie Hat by Nadja Stoller Trio

Video Goodbye Pork Pie Hat by Nadja Stoller Trio

(C. Mingus, R. Roland Kirk)

He put all of his soul
Into a tenor saxophone
He had a way a talking
't was a language of his own
Life story love and glory
If you listen when he plays it for you
Now listen and listen, and dig it
Can you dig it?
Lester Young is playing what is feeling
Dealing and dancing you

When Charlie speaks of Lester
You know that someone great has gone
The sweetest swinging music man
Had a Porkie Pie hat on
A bright star in a dark age
When the bandstands had a thousand ways
Of refusing a blackman admission
Black musician
In those days they put him in an underdog position
Cellars and chittlins
