  • Also, somebody knit up a version of that shirt!

    • That was exactly my thought! A nice summer cardigan!
      And the music was awesome too….

  • Thank you so much. I think he’s wonderful!

    • Soundtrack from the movie “Soul” is phenomenal. It’s a must-hear if you’re a Jon fan. And I agree, we need a knit pattern fir that shirt!

  • Oh I just love Jon Batiste!

  • I love this so much that it has become our cheer up, get moving song of the day! ❤️Jon Baptistery! He is so talented!

    • Darn autocorrect! Mr. Baptiste!

  • What a delight! Such a great way to start the day.

  • He’s my latest “discovery”; never cared much for jazz until Jon came into my life. I watch him every night on Stephen Colbert. Thank you for highlighting Jon!

    • I do to! He was just nominated for an Emmy for his contribution to “Soul”. So excited for him 🙂

    • They had me at “yardi gras.” So fun.
