Two-Minute Marvels : Gladshot, Emilliana, Tony Bennett, Get Cape...

I'm having a whale of a time with these two-minute-marvels; it's a wonder indeed how much musicality & feeling can be squeezed into such a small amount of time.

I've included a Tony Bennett track, who you might not associate with compact little tunes - but here it is; short, sublime & absolutely splendid.
Don't Get Around Much Any More - Tony Bennett
Jazz (1987) a compilation of 1954 to 1967 recordings

Then, by way of a mood swing - something rockier from last year's Gladshot album; which is excellent.

sticking with 2008, but acoustic now... ahh I love the end, where she sings "if you blind me now, I am defeated"

More moving acousticness (what?) - the brass just makes this.
