Jazz songs about jazz musicians

À L'ENTERREMENT DE SIDNEY BECHET
sung by Patricia Kaas

À l'enterrement de Sidney Bechet
Y'avait des flûtes des clarinettes
So long Big Man

À l'enterrement de Sidney Bechet
Y'avait des putes et des poètes
Et des barmans.

À l'enterrement de Sidney Bechet
Y'avait Boris et sa trompette.

À l'enterrement de Sidney Bechet
On jouait de jazz rue de la Huchette.

À l'enterrement de Sidney Bechet
Y'avait des petites fleurs des pâquerettes
So long Big Man

À l'enterrement de Sidney Bechet
Personne n'est venu faire la quête
Pas vous messieurs dames.

Dans un club de la New Orléans
Au paradis des musiciens
Il a sûrement une place assise
Dans un orchestre qui se souvient.

So long Big Man
So long Big Man

Mister Jelly Lord

In foreign lands across the sea,
They knight a man for bravery,
Make him a duke or a count, you see,
Must be a member of the royalty.

Mister Jelly struck a jazzy thing,
In the temple by the queen and king,
All at once he struck upon a harmony chord,
King said, “Make Jelly a lord.”

Mister Jelly Lord,
He’s simply royal at that old keyboard,
You should see him toil,
He plays jazz music, as a rule,
He sits upon his throne, that old piano stool.
With his melodies,
I mean, he strokes the ivories,
Now at home, as well as abroad,
They call him Mister Jelly Lord.

When Mister Jelly struck his hometown,
All the people gathered ‘round,
They said, “Mister Jelly, you so grand,
We gonna make you King of Dixieland.”

All the people from far and near,
Said, “Mister Jelly, you have nothing to fear,”
The preacher man said, “The bars are bare,”
If we can’t make him king, then make him the mayor.

Jelly Lord,
He’s simply royal at that old keyboard,
You should see him toil,
When you see him strolling down the street,
Yes, the man’s an angel with great big feet.
With his melodies,
Have made him lord of ivories, just a simple little chord,
Now at home, as well as abroad,
They call him Mister Jelly, oh —

Jelly Lord,
He’s simply royal at that old keyboard,
You should see him toil,
When he plays jazz music as a rule,
God knows, a ivory fool.
With his melodies,
Has made him lord the . . . of ivories, just a simple chord,
Now at home, as well as abroad,
They call him Mister Jelly Lord, babe.
