Montana Jazz from:
Jack Walrath – trumpet Philip Aaberg – Piano Kelly Roberti – bass
You know this music came up the river.
It came hopping the Great Northern Empire Builder.
It came on Red River carts and painted ponies.
It came in the clouds, riding the wind, down into the badlands,
up through the ground
through the roots of the cottonwood trees back into the big sky.
And it reached Jack in Edgar, Montana.
Kelly in Malta, Montana.
And me in Chester, Montana.
It’s yours now.
