music under new york: ron gibbs
This is New York.
If you can make it here,
you can make it
in any subway anywhere.
Jazz and Funk guitarist.
Part of the program Music Under New York.
A brilliant musician.
I don't know if I should cry or laugh.
I love music.
Getting this quality of music
for a dollar in a hat
As a listener.
As a father of kids with extra-ordinary
talents for music I'm not sure.
Got to rush, got to rush.
Can't miss that train.
That's what keeps the kids in clothes.
That's what keeps the kids off the street
and above the ground.
But, please, stop, for a second
and drop, a dollar, in, that, hat.
And don't forget to listen
to the music.
