I don't know if the word covers is used in a jazz context, but anyway, how about:Art Pepper - SummertimeArt Pepper - Over the Rainbow?Yep. Wyatt even had a hit with his first cover of it in the 70s and was on TOTP.
Few cover albums spring to mind -
Van Morrison/Chieftains - Irish Heartbeat ( trad Irish arr)
John Hammond - Wicked Grin ( T Waites)
June Tabor/Oyster Band - Freedom and Rain (Dylan/Richard Thompson)
If we don't have covers in Jazz then what do we call it? Serious question.
Cassandra Wilson - Last Train to Clarksville.Written by Boyce and Hart and made famous by The Monkees of course. Bob Dylan has called this song one of the most subversive of it's time as it deals with a soldier getting called up to Vietnam.
Breakfast in Bed, Shelby Lynn. Pretty sultry really, Dusty's version was hot too!
Ah, you've started to read Pratchett then!
Cyro Baptista - Immigrant SongOn Love the Donkey.
Medeski, Martin & Wood – Hey Joe (Live)Very bluesy ;-)
Medeski, Martin & Wood – Caravan
