I love what this young guy does with Minnie Ripperton's classic Loving You. Minnie's astonishing vocals really took center stage and it was easy to lose sight of the artistry of the composition in and of itself. Here Sungha Jung plays an acoustic version of same which I think you'll likely enjoy, if you let yourself:

In this setting, the bones of the song reveal such lovely melodic line and pleasing structure. Very nice rendition of a very nice song.

WOW, he's good! And you're right, the 'essence' of the song comes through loud and clear!

Wow. I'm sending my kids to lessons this summer. If they show 1/10th the ability that this young man shows, I'll be busting my buttons.

I still smile at the "whistle" portion. Heh. Brings back great times.

I'm having flashbacks to the convention.
