Late Night in Jazz City is more like pop than jazz although it is a true story and musically, its very unusual. The song starts with a crazy drum and sax thing that reminded me of the Pink Panther music, very cool. It then took a quick turn to the main theme. Twists and turns lead to soaring harmonies and male/female vocal trade offs, crazy good stuff.

Lyrics

V 1
It is late night in jazz city I hear my darlings voice
Late night in jazz city Whisper in my ear
Late night in jazz city As we walk along
Street lamps shine their light Revealing all its charm
Chorus
I hold my lovers hand Walking down the streets
V 2
Diamonds in the mist Illuminate her streets
Emeralds and sapphires Dance on silhouettes
Crystal clear desire Floating in the wind
I hold my lovers hand Late night in jazz city
Chorus
Simple in its charm Just a chord or two
Break
Late night in jazz city I hear my lover’s voice
Late night in jazz city Whisper in my ear
Late night in jazz city Simple in its charm
Late night in jazz city Only me and you
Instr
Lead Break
V 3
Just melody Expresses everything
I hold my dearest close And the city starts to sing.
Saxaphone lead
Chorus
I hold my lovers hand Walking down the streets
Outro
Late night in jazz city I hear my lover’s voice
Late night in jazz city Whisper in my ear
Late night in jazz city As we walk along
Late night in jazz city Simple in its charm
Late night in jazz city only me and you
Late night in Jazz city The city of the night
