Doug Carn with Jean Carn, “Infant Eyes”

Here’s another post of mine from Larry Haley’s The Bop Shop.

I was hipped to this (and so many other great jazz songs) by the late great Eric Jackson on his ‘GBH evening show. It’s a beautiful ode to Doug and Jean Carn’s daughter — lyrics by Doug, set to Wayne Shorter’s music in 1971. It has that magic early 70s black jazz-soul vibe that never gets old.

RIP, Wayne Shorter
