I'm glad someone has already expanded it to include the electric piano.
That would be the OP in first post. How could you not when it's rock. We all do it. Come into the middle or end of a thread and.... I ever tell you how Ray left a audience in a foggy drizzle in an evening concert for about an hour, no explanation for it at all, but he made up for it...almost. Maybe some of you were also there?

Love this song, and the woman who sings it. There is a subtle riff throughout , but the piano intro is so pretty. Waddy Wachtel, who also played for James Taylor quite often is on guitar. Not sure who this pianist is. And of course, there is Linda!

For those who are not jazz buffs, Bill Evans was one of the giants of jazz piano who unfortunately died in 1980 at the age of 51. I’m stretching the topic a bit, but it’s a spot-on analysis one of the techniques/licks that Evans used in his playing. This particular technique can be heard in many of Evans recordings. For those BY’ers who are not jazz fans try to stick with the video to the end. He goes a bit fast and it may be hard to follow if you’re not a musician, but I think you guys might find it enlightening.

But beauty is said to be in the eye of the beholder. Perhaps his Mom, Liane, would find it lovely. :D

The interplay between Garcia and Hornsby that begins approx. 4:30 mark is special!
