Blondie OK, especially Rapture.

Novelty cover songs suck.

anyone have rips that arent Real Audio files?

Idiots Rule was kinda jazzy anyway.

Ditto. I refuse to sully my machine with that.

Robo73: One of my most hated somgs of all time is Been Caught Stealing.

Something particularly wrong with it? I have the Ritual de La Habitual album somewhere...can't say it's one of my favs, but that tune is pretty cool.

About time the tables get turned. Been listening to modern pop/rock bands butchering jazz standards to lend themselves an artistic air. Primus is gonna be a little tough to jazz up. Maybe calypso?

Quote from another article somewhere on the web: "The nation's first out dyke comedian, Lea DeLaria is also an accomplished jazz singer, stage/tv/film actor, author and activist. She made her solo album debut in May 2001 with Play it Cool (Warner Bros. Jazz) receiving rave reviews across the country and being voted the number one jazz album by The London Times."

The Bad Plus did this much, much better than this chick.

/And they did it without the singing.
2005-03-13 09:32:31 PM  
then you are a musical troglydite Robo73 or just another farker who thinks its cool to hate what becomes popular whether it is good or not. Either way your an asshat and deserve to be ignored like any other trend follower. You are equivilent to a Britney Spears fan

SockMonkeyHolocaust: Novelty cover songs suck.

For the most part I agree, but ever listed to Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine? They rock.

They're the ones who did the cover of Down With the Sickness for the new Dawn of the Dead.

But,strange as it may seem,I did hear a Muzak version of Blondies' "Pretty Baby" one time in an elevator. Very bizarre.
2005-03-13 09:39:39 PM  
That's right, Bobby....Rock has been on the decline since the mid 80's.
The death of the Pogues and the rise of Ladysmith Black Mumbazza.
I, for one, welcome the new advent of JAZZZ

For jazz versions of rock songs, you can't beat the Bad Plus.
2005-03-13 09:41:18 PM  

richard cheese is amazing!
2005-03-13 09:41:23 PM  
I prefer bluegrass covers. Luther Right and the Wrongs covered Pink Floyd's The Wall in in entirety. It's pretty cool. Hayseed Dixie has all sorts of great bluegrass cover songs that include AC/DC, Motorhead and Queen.
2005-03-13 09:41:58 PM  

As I said about both in 1995, stop. Just, stop. You've done all you can by now. Just, stop.

Also, is it me, or has anyone else noticed that *everyone* that releases a C.D. that sells more than 1 million copies gets a "string tribute to" these days.

Really. I mean, I liked evanescence's first C.D., but a string tribute?

What. The. F-you-c.k?
2005-03-13 09:42:40 PM  
Isn't listening to Jane's Addiction sad enough?
2005-03-13 09:43:05 PM  
Stop whining and download Real alternative.
2005-03-13 09:45:31 PM  
novelty covers suck if you have no sense of humor.

TY Sid for the Lounge against the machine ref.

Richard Cheese are the shiat.

We discovered him by accident, but it wasn't long until his renditions ("covers" is too mild, he owns the songs) of "Down with the Sickness" and "Closer" were staples in our lives.

I was insufferably smug when we went to see Dawn of the Dead. I recognized the song from the first piano note...

/i wan-na feel you from the iiiIIIiiinnn... side!

Stop whining and download Real alternative.

Which can be found over yonder

Doing jazz covers of mainstream songs is considered to be "crossover jazz." This is nothing new... however these are not prime examples of the sub-genre. I highly suggest you check out something like Brad Mehldau's version of "Paranoid Android."
2005-03-13 09:50:24 PM  
Jazz Schmazz.

Nothing beats the Austin Lounge Lizards' bluegrass cover of Pink Floyd's "Brain Damage."

Cut and paste, I hope. live with my mom3-600​4179-032 4643

These and many more tunes

I don't know halfmast, Lounge against the machines decontstruction of limp bizkits "break stuff" really shows how lame his lyrics are out of context of the thumping tough bass.

Sad thing is, Pat Boone's "No More Mr. Nice Guy" album is probably less of a joke than the upcoming Will Smith album where he goes gangsta
2005-03-13 10:04:11 PM  
Didn't RTFA, but it did kind of freak me out when the FL supermarket chain Publix started playing Neil Young. Did his stuff become public domain or something? I don't think they play any more Muzak at all.
2005-03-13 10:04:52 PM  
Here is my list of "standards" she should try next:


BLACK SABBATH--"Electric Funeral"


MELVINS--"Black Santa"

SLEEP--"Dopesmoker"(all 62 min.)

UNSANE--"Body Bomb"

Aw come on! Be bold! Jazz standards for GG Allen. Can't wait to hear them cover 'Anal coont.'

Does anyone know what that 70's "jazz fusion" experimental CD was called? I think it was by John Coletrane.
2005-03-13 10:32:45 PM  
The coolest jazz cover I've heard has to have been of Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes"
2005-03-13 10:33:26 PM  
Hey that Pat Boone Album is comic genius.

Thats the point.

Is it great art, NO.

Is it an odd twist on a familiar subject that makes you laugh? Well it was for me.

GBoaR, meet the filter.

Filter, Gary Busey on a Rampage.

I'm sure you'll become good friends.


By the way, forget Electric Funeral. I wanna hear Jazz Supernaut.
2005-03-13 10:35:32 PM  
I hope you meant GG Allin, Busey..
2005-03-13 10:40:48 PM  
I hate Pat Boone with a passion. I don't know one man, other than Fred Durst, who single-handedly ruins music for everyone.

The article mentions Jamie Cullum. He does a really good cover of Radiohead's "High and Dry"

look, i worked at a jazz station for two years (real jazz, not that kenny g smooth jazz clear channel shiat), and i appreciate the genre. miles davis, john coltrane, kenny burrell, art blakey, even newer guys like blanchard and stafford...

i also like "grunge" or "alternative" rock.

they don't mesh.

There's a group called "The Bad Plus" who started doing this a few years back. They put out a god farking AWFUL cut of "smells like teen spirit" and it was a war crime. they did "iron man" on their next album.. almost as bad <- all music page for the "teen spirit" album, hear it for yourself <- iron man..
2005-03-13 10:47:16 PM  
Pat Boone is a beautiful genius

/obscure? I think not

Doubtful. Coltrane died in 1967. Are you thinking about Miles Davis' biatches Brew?
2005-03-13 10:50:06 PM  

did you mean

"Bruce: Wow. One thing I hear a lot is, people say, "Bruce, what's this with you and Jazz? What's the beef with you and Jazz music?"

I say, "Well, I really hate Jazz."

They say, "What do you hate about poor old Jazz?"

I say, "The sound. The sound that Jazz instruments make when they're being manipulated by Jazz players to the delight of Jazz respondents. I think of it as musical barf."

They say, "I don't think you've given Jazz a chance."

Well, I maintain, I haven't given suicide a chance, but. . .Well, I did give suicide a chance, but that was only because I was threatened with Jazz. You know. Jazz music.

Jazz schmazz. I'm sorry; I've got to go that far. Jazz schmazz.

You know what? I'd like to declare this a Jazz-free zone, about forty miles as far as the Jazz-hatin' crow flies in any direction.

I'm gonna ask a question. What sort of music do you think there is in hell? You know, H-E-double hockey sticks? Well, I think it's probably hateful, free-form Jazz. [to flutist:] What's that? A recorder or something? I'm not into it. Fuzz pedal, that's what I'm into. "
