Sara Gazarek (vocals), Josh Nelson (piano).

Composed by Billy Joel


Recorded: San Clemente, California, Sept-Dec. 2006


Rating: 95/100 (learn more)

Gazarek has a beautiful voice and she digs deeply into this ballad - an unusual transformation of a Billy Joel song into a jazz mood piece. There is no fuss or pretense to this performance, just a complete commitment to the feeling state of the song. In my ideal jazz universe, singers would feel emotions more deeply than mere mortals - after all, they symbolically carry the torch of love for the rest of us. Gazarek achieves that rare level of expression on this track.
