Richard Tee: Still Crazy After All These Years

Richard Tee was a genius piano player who straddled gospel and jazz more evenly than anyone else I can think of. Here he gives the perfect accompaniment to Paul Simon singing Still Crazy. He totally gives the flavor of the song (gospel) in what would otherwise have been a nice but fairly generic arrangement. He stays out of the way of the singer but totally stamps his personality on the performance.
