This is just chilling.

An amazing jazz/blues arrangement that gives every instrument room to breathe.
I don't know what to listen to--the drums? This drummer is a monster. The guitar? It stings. I like the piano, ironically tinkling along like nothing's wrong. The horns give it that city sadness. But it's all in the service of a a great lyric (sung by one of America's greatest voices) about a blind man who doesn't want charity, he doesn't even want to see, he's so fixed on one lost woman. I should just shut up--this speaks for itself.

Bobby Bland, "Blind Man."
