it’s like ice cream on a stick

lightning bugs at dusk

spitting the watermelon pits out on the grass

like cotton dresses

and bare feet

Here is BACK PORCH, a song to long warm evenings. The newest album from bassist Paul Berner, this time a quartet featuring Michael Moore on clarinet and sax, in addition to regular band members Peter Tiehuis and Ed Verhoeff on various guitars. An unusual drumless combination that manages to sound as if it’s always been with us.
Songs of love and loss and good times.
Soft but moving.
Sweet and strong.
