Cover Me Sundays

This week I’ve latched on to the idea that we’ve had architects of music on par with the builders of the pyramids. The genius of Donny Hathaway certainly is counted in that number. When we are about the art and the work, when we’ve spent time and show ourselves approved then we are able to read the hieroglyphics (perform classic material in a manner befitting the work).

I hope that you will agree that these covers fit the bill as modern versions of artists who are able to read the writing on the wall. RIP Donny & Amy.
