Yes, You Like Jazz, #2: Dianne Reeves Sings "Skylark"


Not even close to pushing the envelope here. The most covered standard of the 20th century performed by one of the very best jazz singers we have. What's not to like? Nothing. There's nothing not to like.
UPDATE 1-31-17
Maybe I need to rethink the premise of this new feature. My thinking is that some jazz is just so beautiful that no one could deny its power and excellence. But then, over the weekend my wife declared, "You know, I've come to realize I don't really like muffins." How do you not like a muffin? If that's possible then it must also be possible to not like Dianne Reeves singing "Stardust."
