What do you get when you mix Jill Scott, Al Jarreau and George Benson together?  One of the best versions of the jazz classic “God Bless The Child” in the last decade.  How can you go wrong with these music greats.  Seven-time Grammy Award winning Al Jarreau has an endless list of albums and hit songs and collaborations throughout his long and successful career.  Grammy-winning  Jill Scott glides beautifully from R&B, Neo Soul to Jazz standards with such ease in her unique style and thunderous talent.  George Benson is known for his famous guitar-vocal style which has made him a ten-time Grammy Award winning artist with one of the best songs in my opinion of all time “This Masquerade.”

Below is a video version of their recording of God Bless The Child which is available on iTunes on 2 different albums  Jill Scott Collaborations and  George Benson & Al Jarreau “Givin It Up”.  Both albums are great!  Preview them for yourself after listening to God Bless The Child, and download a copy.  Hope that you enjoyed Sunday Jazz Corner this week.

Train Your Brain is back by popular demand! After many requests, Train Your Brain workshop will be given once again on July14th from 2PM-4PM.

This workshop combines yoga philosophy with investigation of habit. Students will have a chance to investigate how the brain works and how they can be in charge of what information they are receiving. Learn how to train your brain by creating a clear mission and life path. In addition, Lara delves into the very popular “power of attraction” concept, divulging into its truths and clearing up its many misconceptions. Students leave with tools and techniques, such as basic meditation, that can be used beyond the workshop. Train Your Brain is great for anyone, yogi or non yogi, looking to goal set, make life changes, or just reignite their passions once again. After completion of this course, participants are invited to a private forum where Lara will continue the Train Your Brain discussion.

This week we celebrate two versions of My Funny Valentine by Chet Baker.  The first, his classic studio recording which in my opinion was one of the best versions of My Funny Valentine ever recorded.  The second shows footage of Chet Baker performing  live in Torino, Italy (1957) with his smooth and melodic interpretation of My Funny Valentine.

Truly one of our jazz greats he takes us through a deep journey with hundreds of recordings and a handful of vocals over the years.  A great movie – Let’s Get Lost 1988 is a documentary by Bruce Weber on Chet Baker’s life journey and tells his story through all the good and bad.  In listening through Chet’s videos and recordings, his haunting version of My Funny Valentine stands in a class of its own.  One of the most beautiful versions of this song ever recorded.
