As long as I'm posting a Winehouse song, let me add this one which is a tutorial on how to take a pop song and convert into a jazz ballad.

We saw Blossom Dearie in a little club in Hell’s Kitchen as she was getting late in her life.

Warren Wolf just played at Monday Night Jazz in Bushnell Park. He and his combo sounded great.

Here's one from Passport, Klaus Doldinger's superb German jazz band:

If you use the term "Jazzy flavored tunes", you don't understand what jazz is. I've been living it for 40 years.

Yep, I'm just an ignorant country bumpkin out here in the hinterlands, its amazing I can even type, let alone know something about jazz.

Les McCann - "Soaring at Sunset". It probably won't pass muster from the jazz snob, but I like it: :D

Wolf named Milt Jackson as one of his inspirations and played a Jackson piece.

Johnny Johnson, Chuck Berry's long time piano player, with his own boogie solo. Johnson is in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as a sideman. Listen to his keyboards on You Never Can Tell.

Johnson was much more than Berry‘s piano player, both to his career and his music. Pretty well known that Berry used piano keys, not typical guitar ones, for his famous riffs, those riffs came from Johnson. Johnson was a gentle, unassuming man and his lawsuit to get co-writing credits for many of Berry’s hits came way late and was dismissed. Check out Johnson’s work with Keith Richards, great stuff. In fact, many believe Richards prodded Johnson to file his suit, it was that obvious to him the input Johnson had on Berry’s songs.
