Nostalgic but offering something new, David Patrone exudes swanky style and panache, playing musical compositions from the golden age of American Popular Music. He croons and delivers Jazz standards with the distinctive swagger reminiscent of the Jazz and Big Band Leaders of the 30's and 40's.

Lyrics

Winter Angels

Written By: David B Williams Jr.

I met an angel on a path
Surrounded all in white.
His name he never said to me,
(I hadn't thought he might).
Though he: depressed and silent,
I happied at the sight;
and watched at angels following,
toward some ruckus bright.

A group of children played ahead
And laughing as I passed
I child-reflected winter days
and angels in my past
I pressed along much greater than
the man just moments last

All day they played,
more angels made,
til' Mother's whistle blast.

Lyrics to Freddie Hubbard's tune of the same name

Every day I roam the valleys
I climb the mountains and go over the fields
I can't believe it's this real
and maybe next time I will bring you along.

And every day I'm wondering as I am wandering
I'm lookin' to feel it whether it's happy or sad
I try to describe it in song
I hope you have the mind to follow along

And even though that usually
when I explore
The scenery
That I'm alone
It doesn't mean
That I don't need
The company
Of someone who feeels the same
For nature's beauty;
And all of the joy it springs

So if you're interested,
I've got a suggestion
full of adventure;
of family and strife
Not just for this week but for life
If you're a traveler, I'll make you my wife
