about

Another standard I've always loved and one of the first standards I learned in my early days at UCR. I first performed it with the UCR Jazz Ensemble and absorbed into my own repertoire when I started to perform on my own. We decided to go the traditional route to record this one. It was a bit of a nod to my roots in more traditional jazz with a little R&B flavor at the end.

lyrics

Sweet sugar drips, from his sweet lips, the sugar is mine
You bet your life sweet man like this would be hard to find
He picks me up
Makes me feel nice
Makes me think twice about paradise
Like sugar and spice
And everything nice
He's sugar to me

Sweet sounds of joy come into my ear when sugar is near
He sounds so sweet my heart skips a beat when my sugar's near
He picks me up
Makes me feel nice
Makes me think twice about paradise
Like sugar and spice
And everything nice
He's sugar to me
