I was so impressed with Jason Castro’s cover of Tom Petty”s “Learning To Fly” that I had to brag about it here on MasterclassLady.Com. He performed at Joe’s Pub in New York yesterday and, from all accounts, it was a terrific evening of music. Apparently, his manager confirmed that the New York performance was organized on Tuesday, May 11th, leaving them only a dayto prepare. Nevertheless, the evening was a huge success!
Jason has certainly has evolved into a magnetic performer and an expressively musical vocalist.
Backed by stellar musicians, this song highlights everything we have come to know, love and appreciate about Jason – his passionate artistry, his respect for the music, his even greater respect for his audience and his genuine and sensitive persona.
Why he has never been featured on American Idol remains a ridiculous mystery. Do they want ratings or not? (sigh)
At any rate, enjoy Jason’s entire set of tour songs here and if he comes to a stage near you, run don’t walk to see him live and in color.
