The trombone quartet known as the Maniacal 4 cover the quintessential prog track Carry On Wayward Son by Kansas. The trombone on a guitar effects processor was a neat surprise.
If you haven’t heard Animals as Leaders, you’re missing out on some seriously face-melting shreds. The ridiculous technicality of a song like Cafo is what makes Chino M’s cello cover so awesome.
After John Cale’s stop at Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to promote Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood, he wowed us with this soulful rendition of Venus in Furs with Deantoni Parks on the drum kit.

Brett Domino of the Brett Domino Trio covers Daft Punk’s Aerodynamic on the playable Google Doodle synthesizer. It’s not as awesome as the original track, but come on. He did it on a Doodle.
