Wim Overgaauw:
Your Song
I Think It's Going To Rain Today

Selections from the album Sagittarius by Dutch jazz guitar legend Wim Overgaauw (1929-1995).

"Your Song": Wim digs deep into this Elton J. classic.

"I Think It's Going To Rain Today": a Randy Newman composition.

Never heard of this guy before. Great guitar player, especially on the Newman tune. I can't find much about him in the Internets. Any chance you'll post some more? Thanks for turning me on to him!

Hey JV, awesome, glad you liked it. I wasn't sure whether anyone else in the universe was going to be into this. It's on my to-do list to try to buy some more Overgaauw records and hopefully there'll be some good stuff on them, so yeah, stay tuned.
