What I love about this performance is that it is a pastiche of a pastiche. The original version of “I Saw The Light” is an homage to the great singer-songwriters Laura Nyro and Carole King and then a little over 25 years later Todd Rundgren takes us to Brazil with a redux version with all breeziness one would expect from a Bossa. This is truly for the #Grown.
