Jazz is a very unique music genre. It requires much experience to perform or play it well. Every jazz performer would interpret a song in different ways, depending on the mood of the tune, collaboration with the live band as well as interaction with the audience. Experienced Jazz vocalist Cookie sings the song L O V E effortlessly with her own interpretation, changing the melodies, at times with conflicting rhythm, sounding absolutely smooth and interesting.
