Sara Gazarek: And So It Goes

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.
