We’re asking you to dig a little deeper today. Our lovely new header inspired me to do some YouTubing today, looking for some videos of the great ladies of jazz. Listening to Billie Holiday and Dinah Washington, I can’t help but compare them to current musicians. It seems like producers today are hell-bent on ironing out the wrinkles and polishing the flaws out of everything we see and hear. In doing so I think we lose something: the depth of the human element. It’s hardly a new thing, this striving for perfection, but I think we’ve gotten too good at it.
My question to you is this: What is it that reminds you of the beauty of imperfection?
