I think season 10 of American Idol is going to be a really good one. I tell myself every season that I only watch American Idol for the folly of the auditions, but eventually I always find some excuse to keep watching. Occasionally, I find some artist that I like. This performance by Casey Abrams is going to go down as one of my favorites. I got goosebumps, dammit! The kid has talent and style. Throw in a good singing voice and I think he has a good formula going for him.
Hoagy Carmichael would be proud of this version, even though Ray Charles made this classic standard so famous.
The performance below is Casey Abrams on upright bass along with Theo Seidmon on vibes.
Theo Seidmon, vibes. Casey Abrams, bass.
