Thread Name: Phrasing and Willie Nelson
Subject: RE: Phrasing and Willie Nelson
Oh, I'm sure that Sinatra and many others may be far better than Willie Nelson, but it was Willie who taught me to love my father's music. Once Willie got me to love that music, THEN I found out about Sinatra and Peggy Lee, and Dinah Washington, and Ella Fitzgerald, and so many others.
For me, it was Willie who bridged the gap between my father's generation and mine.
