    Sounds good. It reminds me of the Donny Hathaway version a bit.

    you........ are a true artist.

    I love every version of this song... this one is special and cool and evokes all those sympathetic nerve endings in your chest that can give you heartache.... great job

    You must YouTube him and hear his story. There is a clip of him thanking Elton John for bringing him back to being a productive member of society, after which he (Leon) performs this song. American treasure of a songwriter. And this song in particular is amazing. Partial to the Ray Charles version myself. Nice job on the cover by the way! Such emotional changes in this tune and perfectly suited for your choice in instruments!
