Time Out Ten

The Miles Davis Quartet

It Could Happen To You

 

 

For this item you need to be able to stop for ten minutes.

We are often moving on to the next job, the next meeting, scrolling down social media, taking the next call ......'Time Out Ten' asks you to stop for ten minutes and listen to a particular piece of music; to find a time when you won't be interrupted, when you can put in/on your headphones and chill out. Ten minutes isn't long.

Relaxin With The Miles Davis Quintet

 

 

This month, take a few minutes out to listen to Jimmy Van Heusen and Johnny Burke's It Could Happen To You from the album Relaxin' With The Miles Davis Quintet. The song was first written in 1943 for the film And The Angels Sing and the now classic Miles Davis album was recorded thirteen years later with Miles Davis (trumpet), John Coltrane (tenor sax), Red Garland (piano), Paul Chambers (bass) and Philly Joe Jones (drums).

 

Listen to It Could Happen To You:

 

 

 

Hide your heart from sight,
lock your dreams at night
It could happen to you

Don't count stars or you might stumble
Someone drops a sigh and down you tumble
Keep an eye on spring, run when church bells ring
It could happen to you

All I did was wonder how your arms would be
And it happened to me

Keep an eye on spring, run when church bells ring
It could happen to you
All I did was wonder how your arms would be
And it happened to me

 

Miles Davis Quintet

 

 

Hush now child and don't you cryCurtis Mayfield
Your folks might understand you by and by
Just move on up towards your destination
Though you may find from time to time complications

Bite your lip and take a trip
Though there may be wet road ahead
And you cannot slip
Just move on up for peace you will find
Into the steeple of beautiful people where there's only one kind

So hush now child and don't you cry
Your folks might understand you by and by
Move on up
and keep on wishing
Remember your dream is your only scheme so keep on pushing

Take nothing less than the supreme best
Do not obey for most people say 'cause you can past the test
Just move on up to
a greater day
But just you gonna make it, you put your mind to it, you can surely do it

 

Move On Up by Curtis Mayfield
