Natalie Cressman

Day 157 of My Italian Learning Journal*

What a pleasant surprise. I had noticed audio problems with my PC. Then I suspected that the issue could be my wireless headphones. Then I was becoming concerned that the culprit was my PC – the thought of replacing it was not pleasing, since I do have quite a bit of software programs loaded. Recalling the old question, Is it plugged in? I began tracing wires and connections. Solution? – the power plug for the external speakers was not completely plugged in. Then, to test the sound production again I searched on youtube for some music to play. I came across Natalie Cressman, whom I had never heard before. Natalie is an American jazz vocalist and trombonist. II was simply enchanted, not only by her beautiful voice, but also by her trombone artistry. Below I have embedded one of her youtube videos.(Followiing the video is a practice script in Italian . . . grammar corrections welcome.)
