Jazz photos and all that Jazz!.....




So I just got ahold of a large grouping of JAZZ photos...always fun! and decided to use one of my new templates (thank you Graphic pretties) to show them off..."Graphic pretties" is the name of the business that does all my coool graphics in many of my templates, she is a VERY talented woman named Sara who owns Graphic pretties, and I give her my photos and we work on stuff and she makes moving people and all of that!(yep she did this blog photo at the top!) I love her....and if any of you out there need some cool stuff..she is your woman.
just go to http://www.graphicpretties.com/ and you can see some of her handiwork....but she is the one that does all my kicking feet, moving heads, and all of that...she is great! ...

anyway getting back to JAZZZ

so I got ahold of some wonderful JAZZ photos...and I just love them!....
The era...when my parents always told me that life was so much simpler.....

A time when the torch singer lit up the night...and there was loads of music to dance to..my mother and father raised me and my brother on old jazz..and coming from Chicago..it is something that you have to love.... they always told me that we just didn't understand (guess I tell my kids that when it comes to teaching them about the Beatles!) they always told us..we never knew how much fun..fun could be...and how different it was back then..simpler times...easier times...times to dance..and enjoy music.... things we could never know.....
a different era? hmm...well it was 2nd world war....the worst war ever filled with lots of pain for so many people...our country was hurting...our world was hurting... with dicators trying to take over the world...the atom bombs... war on so many frounts....money was tight...life was hard....everyone was uncertain about tomorrow...simpler times?

guess it was just another era. ....the more things change...the more they stay the same...

but the music...sure was good!

hmmmm
