MIJF presents These Digital Times, an online music festival series featuring local and international artists

“The fact that I’m interested in his music should come as no surprise, as he is a truly great songwriter, and most jazz musicians love great songs.

But there are plenty of examples of more lyrical songs as well.” ‘Just Like a Woman’, ‘Lay, Lady Lay’, ‘Forever Young’, ‘Don’t Think Twice’, ‘It’s all over now, baby blue’…the list goes on and on.
