I love this song in almost all of it’s versions. Check out Leslie Odom Jr.’s version, it’s amazing.
I stumbled across a clip of this song on Tumblr and when I finally listened to the whole thing … man, it’s good. It’s a mix of two things I love, electronica and jazz. Nicely done, Karslen.
When my dad visited me back in August, he introduced me to a young pianist named Joey Alexander. For more about Joey, check out these two NPR stories:

- What Does It Mean To Be A Child Prodigy In Jazz?
Suffice to say, I fell in love with his music immediately. This kid (and he is kid) is incredible and he’s playing in one of my favorite musical mediums, jazz. My dad and I went to Barnes & Noble (remember those stores?) and bought his album, which we listened to all weekend. Here’s a taste of Joey’s music. He is really that good.
Another girl group! The Barberettes have been around for a while, they just released an album (which you can get on iTunes), but they’ve done a lot of covers and they’re really good. Here are a few of them.
Here they are covering The Andrews Sisters’ song Rum And Coca-Cola.
And covering Satin Doll.
Covering the Beach Boys’ Barbara Ann.
I really can’t recommend their music enough! I love listening to them, they’re so good. Go to the YT channel these are from for more. And don’t forget to check out their official channel for more.
