Doctoring my eyes

Real Estate Agent with Jameson Sotheby's International Realty

I ran across this, accidentally, while cruising through some 'reels' on Facebook.

For those of you youngsters, it's an oldie, but a goodie... a Jackson Browne song from the golden ages of the 70's... Experience the magic of collaboration as Playing For Change brings together the legendary Jackson Browne, with some of the greatest musicians from around the world for a stunning rendition of his classic, "Doctor My Eyes.” This Song Around The World reunites members of “The Section”— Leland Sklar and Russ Kunkel, who played on the original 1972 song.  I found it fascinating, I think you might, too.

This reimagining blends the amazing musical stylings of Zakir Hussain, Giovanni Hidalgo, Char and 11 amazing musicians from around the globe, along with a special introduction of the extraordinarily talented Chavonne Stewart, who all collectively create an evocative piece that speaks to the unifying power of music.
