Magical: Springsteen’s NYC Serenade in Rome, July 11

Bruce David

A beautiful Springsteen song from the way-early days, turned magical by David Sancious’s Tchaikovsky-meets-Monk piano intro. The usually flawless Roy Bittan gets a couple notes wrong during this one, but the spirit of the piece — the trashman in his silk shirt — is all there.

Any deeper blue and you’re playin’ in your grave…
