It will take me a year to properly catch up to this thread. I don’t think this has been here yet:
Wait, we are doing piano trios now? Cool!
Or how about:
Hell, I used to sing and play a medley of these two songs to my children at bed time in the hope they would get Coltrane in their blood early:
There are better versions of both (to taste I suppose) but navigating You Tube for that is a pain…
Or this is a Lonnie Liston Smith song but I prefer the amazing Pharoah Sanders’ version
Wait you want some jazz Bowie covers?
Robert Glasper experiment with one from Space Oddity
Or Jeff Parker and the New Breed?
That reminds me… I love Glasper’s cover of Smell’s Like Teen Spirit…
Does this count as a cover?
Oh, and this cross over cover…
My mother was a Barbra Streisand fan, so a snippet of a performance mentioned during this profile of Broadway star Lillias White caught my attention. Here’s the whole tune:
“Don’t Rain on My Parade”
My favourite is still the Pet Shop Boys cover/mashup:
And a PSB cover in return (though I think my 90s nostalgia is showing again):
I posted a different version upthread, but just to illustrate that things really do sound different in French…
I actually found myself liking this cover more than the original… and I like the original one a lot.
I don’t know if this is technically a cover, it is for Ann Margaret, but it’s so awesome and a joy to watch, I had to share.
Nutbush, Honky Tonk Woman, and one of the best versions of Rolling On The River.
And now so do I.
What a beautiful cover.
(I love the Tori version too.)
And talking of Nirvana covers, someone put me onto Elvana:
I’d not seen that before.
Gotta be Jack and Kyle, right?
(Oh, course it is. Love it)
Yup, they are, the magnificient beardstards. Shortly after posting it myself, it was also featured on the blog. BECAUSE THEY ROCK
And because I think it has not been posted, a cover of a cover
Or if you need a more high-energy version:
Both bloody excellent, thanks.
In the Larkin/Poe version, I’ve heard that sound before but never seen a guitar played sideways - is that what’s happening?
Loved the second version too - is it from “Without a Paddle”, or am I getting my movies mixed up?
