Diana Krall - A case of You

the musician : Diana Krall
the tune : A case of You
the artist : Nip Rogers
Buy the print : Jazz It Up

A word from Nip about the piecce he chose for this post :"Please use this very version, not the studio version, not the other one she did in France, Paris. This one. Live, close to the mic, raw, tender and lots of improv, takes her time with the song, like every word and note has a story of its own. It soothes me. My wife turned me on to it and now I find myself humming the tune and making failed attempts of catching her vocal runs. I love it."
