Jazz Songs is a history of how I devised the lyrics for a series of songs, their musical notation and a collection of drawings by Calum Storey, depicting jazz musicians in performance. These jazz songs have been created by collaging new lyrics to existing tunes. It starts with three jazz standards covered by John Coltrane, re-written and re-lyricised to mimic all the improvised notes played by Coltrane. Other sections start the process with folk songs and popular songs, and the final section are collages of two existing songs.
