That's How It Goes

I love Marcia Ball, a consummate performer, and this video from YouTube is fan-freakin'-tastic.

From YouTube:

Most music videos start with a highly produced studio track and then have a performer lip sync to that for endless takes. This project didn't use that method. We didn't even use a metronome. We had one remarkable artist: Marcia Ball,one wonderful public art project "Play Me, I'm Yours", and two video producers of questionable sanity: Daniel and Minor. 

We filmed Marcia's performances at the pianos around Austin and then edited the footage to keep the integrity of the song's tempo intact. So with each cut you will hear the distinct timbre of that piano and a change in the ambient background as well.
