One of the most interesting things about her version is the range of musical genres she gives a nod to during the performance. I think there was even a bit of traditional French folk-style in there towards the end. Be interesting to know how much of that was truly improv (my assumption is most of it, a least to a degree).

Loved the foot stamp partway through too.

r.e. Miles Davis, what's your favourite record?
