I Get It, Garr!

Playing music or singing 'naked' is like a good presentation should be.

Simple and Clean with no distractions from fancy build-ins, build-outs, or transitions.

My presentations are now taking off their 'clothes',

I would love an off-topic post with more recommendations for jazz music.

My father used to sing that in the shower. I sent him the link. He replied saying he still does... though not nearly as good as Molly.. Thanks Garr

I couldn't agree more! In fact I might even be willing to say that jazz is the only TRUE art today because while Jazz artists spend a lifetime studying the idiom, and music in general, while they spend a life time learning their instruments, while they spend a life time learning a SONG, they also strip themselves bare in every performance. That's art.
By the way, as a Canadian and a CBC brat, Molly Johnson was someone I'd heard much about, but I'd never bought one of her recordings. After watching her performance of Summertime that you posted here, I bought her latest from iTunes. Thanks!
I must say, I'm proud of Ms Johnson. She could easily move to more profitable environs, but she's chosen to stay at home. Oddly enough, by staying home, she's following the tradition of a great many jazz artists in New Orleans.
Thanks again!
