Norman Jeffrey “Jeff” Healey was a blind Canadian jazz and blues-rock vocalist and guitarist who attained musical and personal popularity, particularly in the 1980s and 1990s. He began playing the guitar at the age of three. This is when he developed the style of playing the instrument flat on his lap.

Sadly most people don’t know how incredible this whole performance was. Jeff Healey for sure but Dr John, Omar Hakim, Marcus Miller and David Sanborn. I just cannot believe that… I get goose bumps just thinking of it. Even for a TV Show who normally people put pre-recorded songs , they end with a song who can be better than the original version … and live.
