(PG-13 Language) While digging under some rocks, we stumbled onto this 2009 cover of Rage Against the Machine’s classic, performed by German swing revival band Musik for the Kitchen. Their Seven Nation Army is fun too.
Vocalist Haley Reinhart and Postmodern Jukebox knock it out of the park once more with an awesome ’40s style jazz cover of the Cardigans 1996 classic Lovefool. Seriously, why didn’t this girl win American Idol?
Grammy-winning Jazz and R&B musician Robert Glasper turns in a brilliant instrumental rendition of Radiohead’s track Reckoner. The track appears on his upcoming live album Covered, to be released June 16th.
Musician Andy Rehfeldt transforms Black Sabbath’s metal classic Paranoid into an upbeat jazz tune, preserving Ozzy Osbourne’s original vocals, but forever lightening the mood of the track. Also, we prefer to remember Ozzy this way.
YouTuber Andy Rehfeldt managed to turn Van Halen’s classic Running with the Devil into a mellow jazz track more fitting of Steely Dan than David Lee Roth. If you enjoyed it as much as we did, buy Andy a beer.
Leonard Solomon creates and plays unusual musical instruments – in this case, he performs the jazz classic Tiger Rag on his Callioforte, which sounds like a Calliope, but without the steam. Hear his “majestic” Bellowphone here.
The Collective Cadenza is working on a series of videos that are conceived of, rehearsed, and performed in less than one hour with songs currently hot in pop culture. We especially enjoy the festive horn section and Pharrell substitute.
An epic arrangement of Dave Brubeck’s Take Five, performed by a group of talented Pakistani studio musicians, with their own unique take on the classic jazz tune. More soul-stirring music from Sachal Studios here.
A jazzy arrangement of Radiohead’s Creep, performed by vocalist Karen Souza, ironically turning the tables on the song’s original protagonist. Hear more of her sultry covers here. Her Tainted Love is pretty great too.
