Mike Nock needs no introduction from me. His musical contribution is legendary throughout the jazz scene worldwide. He was also a character from my jazz school days. I often used to smile at him in the corridor while I sat outside my bass teacher’s door waiting for my weekly private lesson and he made his way to lead a senior impro class. His reputation as a critic was ferocious, but I only ever found him warm and friendly. Never did I ever imagine I would ever get an opportunity to play with him, but the world is a strange and wonderful place. Here is a lullaby for grown-ups to bring this collection to a close.


Lullaby for a Soldier

Rest my love
We don’t need to make a sound
Here and now forever bound
Nothing can harm us

Just fill these arms
Here we make our sacred ground
All that once was lost we’ve found
And no one can keep us apart

Smile my love
Pain and fear can’t stand the light
Everything will be alright
Nothing can harm us

Please fill these arms
Aching to hold you cradled tight
Nothing is ever black and white
But no one can keep us apart.
