Peacock Tail Feather There are many types of birds and they all wear feathers I should know for I was carried off one day And many things one can’t explain such as tides and whether Or not people mean exactly what they say You miss me since I left you it’s raining while I’m gone But if you really want me back you’ll listen to my song… Go and find a Peacock Tail Feather Hang it on the wall You can use it to determine whether I’ll be home by Fall Then you get that Peacock Tail Feather Place it on the door Leave it there to show the neighbors I’ll be home by four But if you really need me You’ll know just what to do Just go and fetch a fat young goose And cook enough for two and… Then you grab that Peacock Tail Feather Stake it on the moon Someday soon we’ll be together I’ll be home by June I’ll be home very soon!

Nostalgia, me lleno de nostalgia Al sentirme ausente de mi patria querida Recordando su gente , sus pueblos, sus praderas Y mientras más recuerdo, más te quiero Venezuela Me dicen que ahora estás más bella, Que los que te visitan se quedan encantados Se emociona mi alma y emprendo una oración Dando gracias al cielo y a nuestro Libertador. Orgullosa me siento al decir "Venezuela" Pues tienes para todos un poco de amistad Aquí lo he comprobado desde un pais lejano Todo el que te visita quiere volver allá. English Translation: Nostalgia, I am filled with nostalgia When I feel far away from my beloved country Remembering its people, its villages, its meadows... And the more memories I have, I love you more Venezuela. They tell me that now you are more beautiful, That everyone who visits you is enchanted. It thrills my soul and I undertake a prayer thanking Heaven and our Deliverer. I feel proud to say "Venezuela" Because you have for everyone a bit of friendship. Even from this far away country, I have the proof Everyone who visits you wants to return.

Lyrics in Creole and English translation: La mazouk en avant. Kavalié ka pointé , Les dames subordonnées Les mains sur le coté. Robes, jupons, souliers d'or, Colliers, foulards madras, Peau kréyol Martinique, Yo peu di yo joli. Au bordèl Lè yo bèl! Yo dou, yo dou, yo dou! Yo joli, yo joli! Pa ni, pa ni konsa. Junn' kon vieu ka pasé, Étranjé ka rivé, Yo ka di Martinique Pa ni pli dou ki sa. The mazurka is beginning. The gentlemen are pointing, The ladies who accompany them Have their hands on their hips. Dresses, skirts, gold shoes, Necklaces, madras scarves, Creole skin of Martinique, You can say they are pretty. They are beautiful! They are sweet, sweet, sweet! They are pretty, pretty! There is none other, none other like them. Young and old who pass by, Strangers who arrive. They will say there is no other place As sweet as Martinique.

Ben: You work and work, for years and years, You're always on the go. You never take a minute off, Too busy making dough. Some day you say, you'll have some fun, When you're a millionaire. Imagine all that fun you'll have in your old rocking chair... Chorus: Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think. Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink. The years go by as quickly as a wink. Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself! It's later than you think. Davis: You save and scrimp, you scrimp and save, You're toiling every day. Then through a series of complex derivitave swaps Your savings go away. Stability is relative, you'll always have that fear. My advice for investing is to buy your friend a beer. Ben: I met a man from 'round the block With two artificial lungs. Can't smoke no more, can't drink no more But he still likes to have his fun. He says to me, "I'm going down But I'm still in the game you know. So you run home and get that clarinet and I'll play the piano. Davis: (Monologue in praise of New Orleans' Katrina expatriates) Chorus

Wassail, Wassail Wassail and Wassail all over the town The cup it is white and the ale it is brown The cup it is made of the good ashen tree And so is the malt of the best barley For it’s your wassail and it’s our wassail… And it’s “joy be to you” and a jolly wassail. There was an old man and he had an old cow And how for to keep her he didn’t know how He built up a barn for to keep his cow warm And a drop or two of cider will do us no harm No harm, no harm, no harm, no harm… And a drop or two of cider will do us no harm Oh where is the maid with the silver headed pin To open the door and let us come in? Oh master and missus are sitting by the fire Pray think upon poor travelers a-travelling in the mire For it’s your wassail and it’s our wassail… And it’s “joy be to you” and a jolly wassail.

Lyrics: The Tighten Up (Buttier/Bell. Additional lyrics by Ben Schenck) Ah, that sounds pretty good. Let's make a party, y'all. Hey! Hey everybody, I'm Ben Schenck from the Panorama Jazz Band in New Orleans, Louisiana. We don't only play jazz but we do all kinds of other styles of music too like Jewish and Caribbean... Right now we're gonna do a little Top 40 number you might remember from 1968 called "The Tighten Up." First let's tighten up on the drums. Aaaw yeah! A'ight now let's tighten up on the tuba. That's pretty deep! Now let's bring that banjo in. Now tighten up on the accordion. Ooh, that's nice and tight! "It's tight like that Louie!" Lu: "Roger" Outasite cuz don't forget: Tight Makes Right. All right well, get ready for the break. Now make it mellow. Oh do The Tighten Up, oh yeah. Now do The Tighten Up, it's all right. Do it to the left, now do it to the right. Oh do The Tighten Up, but don't get too tight. Yeah! Y'all dancin' out there? Ah, good. A'ight well, let's do this again. Now tighten up on the drums. Hey look, this time instead of tightening up all the other instruments, let's try a different idea... Everybody cut loose! (Instrumental Jam Up) All right, now make it mellow. Yeah! Do The Tighten Up. Oh do The Tighten Up. Do it to the left and do it to the right. Do it with the one that you love all night. But don't get too tight! All right, this has been a lot of fun y'all. We had a real good party but we're on a tight schedule. Now I think it's about time we get out. Let's make a tight ending. We're all gonna end together right here. Everybody on the downbeat. 4 - 3 - 2 - 1!

Miss The Mississippi and You as performed by the Panorama Jazz Band Verse: I'm growing tired of the big city lights Tired of the glamour and tired of the sights In all my dreams I am roaming once more Back to my home on the old river shore Chorus: I am sad and weary far away from home Miss the Mississippi and you dear Days are dark and dreary everywhere I roam Miss the Mississippi and you Roaming the wide world over Always alone and blue, so blue Nothing seems to cheer me under heaven's dome Miss the Mississippi and you Verse (spoken): When you live in the city, you end up making all kinda horrible sacrifices You're unable to connect because you're wedded to your electronic devices! (sung) All's I want is to take the canoe, float down the river and snuggle with you Chorus: Memories are bringing happy days of yore Miss the Mississippi and you Mocking birds are singing 'round the cabin door Miss the Mississippi and you Roamin the wide world over Always alone and blue Longing for my homeland, muddy water shore Miss the Mississippi and you

Sa buhay ko'y labis Ang hirap at pasakit, Ng pusong umiibig Mandi'y wala ng langit At ng lumigaya, hinango mo sa dusa Tanging ikaw sinta, ang aking pag-asa. Dahil sa iyo, nais kong mabuhay Dahil Sa Iyo, hanggang mamatay Dapat mong tantuin, wala ng ibang giliw Puso ko'y tanungin, ikaw at ikaw rin. Dahil sa iyo, ako'y lumigaya Pagmamahal, ay alayan ka Kung tunay man ako, ay alipinin mo Ang lahat sa buhay ko, dahil sa iyo. Because of you, there's a joy in living. Because of you, life is heavenly. I never lived before, never felt a single thrill before, My heart stood still before, Darlin' I'm in ecstasy. Because of you, love is sweet and tender. And this my love I will offer you: If you will care for me, all things to you I'll be. My heart is ever true because of you. ================================================= English translation of Tagalog lyric: Long have I endured in my life. The pain and sorrows from Love arise. Then you came and redeemed me, my dear, My only hope in my darkest fears. Because of you, I yearn to be alive. Because of you, ‘til death (you) must realize In my heart I know there is only you. And ask my heart, you’ll know that this is true. Because of you, I found happiness. That to you I offer this love that is so blessed. Though indeed I may be a slave for loving you so true It matters not to me, ‘cause everything’s because of you.

I wonder as I wander I wonder as I wander out under the sky How Jesus the Savior did come for to die For poor or'n'ry sinners like you and like I I wonder as I wander out under the sky When Mary birthed Jesus 'twas in a cow's stall With shepherds and farmers and wise men and all But high from God's heaven a star's light did fall And the promise of ages it then did recall If Jesus had wanted for any wee thing A star from the sky or a bird on the wing Or all of God's Angels in heaven to sing He surely could have it 'cause he was the King I wonder as I wander out under the sky How Jesus the Savior did come for to die For poor or'n'ry sinners like you and like I I wonder as I wander out under the sky

We don't actually sing on this track, but when we do sing it, the lyrics go like this... Oh, didn't he ramble, didn't he ramble Rambled all around, in and out the town Didn't he ramble, didn't he ramble He rambled til the Butcher cut him down. His feet was in the market His head was in the street All the women passin' by said "Look at that monkey meat!" Didn't he ramble, didn't he ramble He rambled til the Butcher cut him down.

Κανείς Εδώ Δεν Τραγουδά (Kaneis Edo Den Tragouda) By Nikos Papazoglou Ραγίζει απόψε η καρδιά Ragizei apopse i kardia με το μπαγλαμαδάκι Me to mpaglamadaki πολλά κομμάτια έγινε Polla kommatia egine σπασμένο ποτηράκι Spasmeno potiraki Θυμήθηκα που πίναμε Thimithika pou piname σε τούτο το τραπέζι Se touto to trapezi τώρα ποιος ξέρει πού γυρνά Tora poios xerei pou girna ποιος ξέρει τι γυρεύει Poios xerei ti girewei Κανείς εδώ δεν τραγουδά Kaneis edo den tragouda κανένας δε χορεύει Kanenas de horewei ακούνε μόνο την πενιά Akoune mono tin penia κι ο νους τους ταξιδεύει Ki o nous tous taxidewei Τυχαία δήθεν αν τη δεις Tihaia dithen an ti deis φέρ' την στο ταβερνάκι Fer'tin sto tavernaki κρυμμένος θα 'μαι στη γωνιά Krimmenos tha 'mai sti gonia για να τη δω λιγάκι Gia na ti do ligaki Κανείς εδώ δεν τραγουδά Kaneis edo den tragouda κανένας δε χορεύει Kanenas de horewei ακούνε μόνο την πενιά Akoune mono tin penia κι ο νους τους ταξιδεύει Ki o nous tous taxidewei English translation: No One Here Sings Today the heart cracks With the baglama* It all fell to pieces Like broken glass I remembered, we used to drink At this very table Now who knows where she's running to Who knows what she's looking for No one here sings No one here dances They only hear the tune And their mind drifts If you happen to see her Bring her to the tavern I'll be hidden in the corner To see her a little No one here sings No one here dances They only hear the tune And their mind drifts * A baglama is a small instrument of the lute family. In Greek folk music, it is the symbolic companion of the heart-broken or down-trodden.

Lyrics by Henry Pacory REFRAIN: J'ai compris ta détresse Cher amoureux Et je cède à tes voeux Fais de moi ta maîtresse Loin de nous la sagesse Plus de tristesse J'aspire à l'instant précieux Où nous serons heureux Je te veux Je n'ai pas de regrets Et je n'ai qu'une envie Près de toi là tout près Vivre toute ma vie Que mon corps soit le tien Que ta lèvre soit mienne Que ton coeur soit le mien Et que toute ma chair soit tienne REFRAIN Oui je vois dans tes yeux La divine promesse Que ton coeur amoureux Vient chercher ma caresse Enlacés pour toujours Brûlant des mêmes flammes Dans un rêve d'amour Nous échangerons nos deux âmes REFRAIN English translation: REFRAIN: I understand your distress Dear lover And I yield to your wishes Make me your mistress Far from us is wisdom No more sadness I look forward to the beautiful moment When we will be happy I want you I have no regrets And I have only one desire Beside you there so close To live all my life May my body be yours May your lips be mine May your heart be mine And may all my flesh be yours REFRAIN Yes I see in your eyes The divine promise That your loving heart Comes looking for my caress Joined forever Burning in the same flames In a dream of love We will swap our two souls REFRAIN

In The Summertime (Updated lyrics by Ben Schenck) In the summertime when the weather is fine You can reach right up and you can touch the sky. When the weather's fine you got livin', you got rhythm on your mind. Grab a friend, take a drive, go out and see what you can find. If her daddy's poor take him out for a meal, If her daddy's rich, shoot, order the veal! Park along the lake, you can kiss or just discuss philosophy. Just don't do nothin' for which you might owe an apology. When the weather's fine, yeah it's party party time, We like to dance and play while we push the paradigm. Get some drums and horns, makin' rhythm with some wisdom is the key. Add a banjo and accordion for that epic auditorium harmony!

(Now And Then There's) A Fool Such As I Pardon Me if I'm sentimental when we say good-bye. Don't be angry with me if I cry. When you're gone, yet I dream a little dream of years gone by. Now and then there's a fool such as I. Now and then there's a fool such as I am over you. You taught me how to love and now you say that we are through. I'm a fool but I love you dear, until the day I die. Now and then there's a fool such as I. Now and then there's a fool such as I am over you. You taught me how to live and now you say that we are through. I'm a fool but I love you dear, until the day I die. Now and then there's a fool such as I am over you. Now and then there's a fool such as I.

(Special thanks to Panorama friend Ray Funk and Trinidad language expert Dr. Lise Winer for help with the lyrics. There were a few of them I really couldn't make out.  -Ben) Box Car Shorty Well I’ve got to tell you ‘bout this mighty man Mighty man from across the pond Box Car Shorty is the man I mean Chunky, short in height but like dynamite He's so witty and so powerful Moves boxcars, don’t care near or far Shorty got his name from boxcar fame But that isn’t all, he answers any call Chorus: Shorty, Box Car Shorty Shorty, you’re just a wonder man Lord, man, you just kickin’ Mighty, with everyone you walk Shorty, Box Car Shorty Shorty, you set the world to talk Sly like a mongoose, chock full of might Got all de world, man, it's lock up tight Verse: Shorty said that he would love to fly Way up high past the stratosphere Once up there nobody would deny That he'd land on Mars and solve the cause of wars Chorus Verse: So, he went up in a yaeroplane Somersault, landed on his head Crowd start yelling, thought that he was dead But he got right up and wiped his face instead! Chorus

Although our version is an instrumental, my teachers always said a jazz musician has to know the lyrics. Till There Was You (Meredith Willson) There were bells on a hill But I never heard them ringing No, I never heard them at all Till there was you. There were birds in the sky But I never saw them winging No, I never saw them at all Till there was you. And there was music and wonderful roses They tell me In sweet, fragrant meadows Of dawn and dew. There was love all around But I never heard it singing No I never heard it at all Till there was you.

I almost Forgot About The Blues Charlie Wood I used to have a lot of luck Yeah but all of it was bad Lost my love and my way and my mind I lost everything I had I was starting to think I had nothing left to lose But I almost forgot about the blues I heard a woman speak kind words I felt her touch and I saw her smile Thought that love had finally come my way and I... And I hoped that it would stay a while. Yeah my heart and soul were happy Til my head told them the news That I almost forgot about the blues I tried to run and hide away Where trouble could not find me Yeah but every time I turned around The blues was right behind me I thought my luck finally changing Thought my ship was coming in I fantasized about barflies Telling folks they knew me when I got tangled up somewhere between the sweet talk and the booze And I almost forgot about the blues I never looked for trouble I tried to live a quiet way Many moons might pass quite peacefully But there always come a day So the whiskey isn't working The well is running dry It's too tragic just to laugh it off but it's too Comical to cry I'm just trying to find some peace of mind And I'm wondering what I could use 'Cause I almost forgot I nearly forgot Yes I almost forgot about the blues

Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You You're just too good to be true Can't take my eyes off you You'd be like heaven to touch I wanna hold you so much At long last love has arrived And I thank God I'm alive You're just too good to be true Can't take my eyes off you Pardon the way that I stare There's nothing else to compare The sight of you leaves me weak There are no words left to speak But if you feel like I feel Please let me know that it's real You're just too good to be true Can't take my eyes off you I love you, baby And if it's quite alright, I need you, baby To warm a lonely night, I love you, baby Trust in me when I say Oh, pretty baby Don't bring me down, I pray, oh pretty baby Now that I found you, stay And let me love you, baby Let me love you You're just too good to be true Can't take my eyes off you You'd be like heaven to touch I wanna hold you so much At long last love has arrived And I thank God I'm alive You're just too good to be true Can't take my eyes off you I love you, baby And if it's quite alright I need you, baby To warm a lonely night, I love you, baby Trust in me when I say Oh, pretty baby Don't bring me down, I pray, oh pretty baby Now that I found you, stay, oh pretty baby Trust in me when I say

People! Listen to me. This whole damn situation lookin' pretty gloomy. We got dead fish floatin' in the water, Dead birds flyin' in the sky, Dead trees goin' up in smoke while dead people look you in the eye. Collapsing ecosystems, dysfunctional economy, All perpetuated by this illusion of autonomy. It's time to turn on the Light, wake up the people And live. We got a lotta problems people But I believe that they can be solved! (Help me out Green Taggers) One! Let's set aside our grievances, Two! Form new allegiances, Three! Roll up our sleeves Four. And get involved. Turn on the Light! Wake up the people And live. Yeah. People! We're not awake. Still livin' that nightmare 'bout bein' separate drops of water. Ha! Lookin' for the Lake. Dehumanizing others, Abusing sisters, executing brothers. I refuse to be smothered under plastic and lies! Let's open our eyes, we better get wise. Just gimme good air, water, food, shelter, community. Every global crisis is a global opportunity. For generations our mother has been under attack. It's time to wake up y'all And scale it back. Turn on the Light! Wake up, people And live. I mean really live! I feel right in this moment, I feel good in this moment. I feel right in this moment, I feel good in this moment! (Green Taggers) I feel right in this moment, I feel good in this moment. I feel right in this moment, I feel good in this moment!

Morgus The Magnificent On Saturday nights when we go for a date My Baby and I just sit and wait for Morgus, the Magnificent We don’t go out to roll and rock We get our kicks from the House of Shock He’s got shaggy hair and a graveyard stare With vampire blood spilled everywhere that Morgus, the Magnificent We don’t go out to roll and rock We get our kicks from the House of Shock If you want a thrill, turn the lights down low Get set for the ghoul who’ll steal the show that Morgus, the Magnificent We don’t go out to roll and rock We get our kicks from the House of Shock
