Personal mood reflected in today’s series offering. Each one of these takes on this Billy Joel classic offer their own color and sonic sensibilities. This is one of those songs that’s perfect for reflection. Special shout out to two of my favorite horn players Phil Woods and Michael Brecker who offered up their fantastic solo work on the Joel original and Diana Krall cover respectively. May their souls rest in peace.
