Sharlene

Here is my favorite lady of Tuesday afternoons, the wonderful Sharlene playing Someday My Prince Will Come. Sharlene is discovering and enjoying early-mid 20th century vocal jazz standards, which is great for me because teaching her this repertoire reminds me how beautiful and complex this music is. I wax eloquently to Sharlene about historical and political context of her pieces and their fascinating harmonic structure, she adds her own anecdotes about actually being alive at that time, and we both learn a lot of new things. I have a great job, I know.
