Child Prodigy

I'm speechless... and quite ashamed of myself for being annoyed. I just read a release about the newest prodigy to "grace" the jazz scene. Her name is Grace Kelly. She's labeled as a Singer/Songwriter/Saxophonist. She's booked at the Standard this week. She's 14.

. . .

I know my skin is turning an unattractive shade of green, but how bad is it that I was relieved not to care for her saxophone playing after listening to her newly registered myspace? Her vocals on the track "I Will" I found more convincing.

Maybe it's the shared name, or the instrument, or the career, but come on folks, the Standard?!!
