I'm on the march with Doctor Jazz
He's got the best.
And always has
All around the shady town
I'm on the march with Doctor Jazz
All the girls come out to stare
They see him everywhere
I'm on the march with Doctor Jazz

The carnival comes to town
There is laughter all around
But I don't hear the lady sing
I'm on the march with Doctor Jazz
They call me Mr Blues
And I play anything I chose
I'm on the march with Doctor Jazz

I've got a girl called Mary
She's got a house and a mouse called Jerry
But I don't hear the church bells ring
She's got a cat called Tom and everything
With her Brecker Brothers records
And Pat Metheny too
She's in love with Doctor Jazz

She's got a thing for me
But she's in love with Doctor Jazz

Nice cool jazzy feel, interesting feel to the rhythm. Like the words. Love the scat at the end!

cool silky jazzy number. very easy to listen to. loved the horns
good vibe throughout and nice little musical touches.
good feel good track with a cool cat vibe to it

This is not only my favorite genre, it is even better when it is well done, which this one is.

Nice groove. I liked the horn arrangement and playing. Liked the outro a lot.

I like the concept -- "She's got a thing for me, but she's in love with Dr. Jazz." -- Great concept/premise for the tune!

I liked the female scatting at end...but wondered why I couldn't "pick out" her voice earlier in the tune. (I'm guessing she was the harmony.)
