Over many decades as a professional jazz and classical guitarist, with an international career, I have been privileged to work with three dozen superb singers of diverse genres and backgrounds. By far the finest was the American jazz singer Maggie Galloway—the most musical, the most flexible, the most artistic. She can sing anything. She has an uncanny ability to communicate a song’s meaning and to reach deep into its essence, while responding instantaneously to what the musicians around her are doing. She understands on every level what the composers and lyricists are after.
