    Teaming up to travel from Hip-Hop to Jazz, BrooklynBeatz and CandaceK begin on Marcy Avenue and take listeners on a trip to the famed jazz club as it was during its heyday just north of 52nd Street in Manhattan.

    As in life, detours, triumphs, and confusion all play a part in the struggle to find a place where you belong. But what you learn from the journey will enrich the destination. The struggle enriches the finale.

    With classic sounds from both of ends of the spectrum, jazz vocal stylings, story-based lyrics, and vintage instrumentation and vocal production, the project wouldn't be complete without a touch of soul.

    Come on down to Jazz Avenue, by way of Brooklyn.

    Lyrics:

    I feel so displaced now
    I took off
    Running down the boulevard of dreams, or so I thought

    Curious to see if a detour could save me time
    Could elevate me, but my priorities realigned

    You were the definition of temptation
    I took a bite
    Suspended my journey halted like a DONT WALK sign

    I got tangled in the traffic jam inside my mind
    I dismissed my dream, but now I swear to you I've gotta try

    Ooh, I gotta do what I gotta do
    You gotta do what you gotta do
    Gotta do what I gotta do
    You gotta do what you gotta do

    So now I stand at the crossroads and I'm so confused
    You came and turned me around and I followed just like a fool
    Gotta find a way to eliminate distractions
    Gotta find a way back to the main attraction
    Yeah

    I was on my way then lost my memory
    Made me forget there's somewhere that I'm supposed to be
    Now that I'm so lost and frozen
    Kicking myself for choosing the boulevard I've chosen

    Ooh, I gotta do what I gotta do
    You gotta do what you gotta do
    Gotta do what I gotta do
    You gotta do what you gotta do

    Ooh, I gotta do what I gotta do
    You gotta do what you gotta do
    Gotta do what I gotta do
    You gotta do what you gotta do

    I feel so lost I'm all turned around
    Feel so low I'm back underground
