Beautiful performance. The Bass is maybe my favorite accompaniment instrument.. I love what she does with this song.. I think she really takes it somewhere it didn't go on its on... really adds her direction and depth to it. That Bass adds more than just aural depth.. check out Richard Bona's solo bass work.. and also Cassandra Wilson's bass heavy pieces. There' s something about that bass that cuts to the heart of thing.
that's about as close as Lauryn Hill would ever get to the Whitehouse.. there are advantages to letting your politics influence your personal choices but leaving it out of your Art.. because politicize Art demands political responses.
