For Jazz Lovers Only

I came across a song sung by Lou Rawls that caught my attention.  It's not that I haven't heard this song before as I have heard it played by David Sanborn, but never to this degree. And since I've decided to perform this song, I now hear this song as if I was  listening to it for the first time. The name of the song, "Willow Weep For Me" , words and music by Ann Ronel  and recorded in 1932.
It made me investigate who besides Lou Rawls and David Sanborn performed this song. I came across Billie Holiday, Sam Cooke among others who also recorded this song.  I also found a clip of Lou Rawls doing this Jazz piece on youtube. What's interesting about this song is that it's considered a jazz piece with a hint of blues. I believe it's a very thin line between blues and jazz in some songs, and for those who are in tune, listening wise, will hear when it touches blues and then revert back to jazz. It would be interesting to hear your input on this by leaving a comment. Let's explore this Made in America art called "Jazz".

supra shoe looks so fashionable and trendy that you cannot afford to comeback barehanded once you step into the shop. The features of the sneakers are so popular among young girls that each day they are looking forward to walk to exhibit their widest set of shoes. Combination of red leather and having zebra fur is making the shoes famous day by day. It is also comfortable and durable from the customer point of view.
