This post is long overdue.
Jeff Buckley is a rock legend. Most have heard his famous rendition of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ but not his famous LP ‘Grace’, the only album he recorded before his untimely death. Its still hailed as one of the top 100 albums of all time according to Rolling Stone.
He was fearless in his approach to music. Singing a beautiful ballad one minute and edgy rock the next, he pushed boundries no one dared. I was floored the minute I heard him sing a song by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Knowing the vocal chops of the qawwali master I started to laugh (you can hear the crowd do it too) but after a minute he hits a note that is so close to the Nusrat original…I was transported.
Enough..if you aren’t familiar with him here’s a sampling..
