When Jazz Covers Go wrong; The Bad Plus

Want to start your weekend off in style? Well, why not take a listen to this utterly bonkers Jazz interpretation of Blondie’s Heart Of Glass, as performed by virtuoso Jazz trio The Bad Plus?

I’ve only recently discovered this band, which I realise makes me terribly slow and awfully out of touch with the music communities, considering the album this performance is taken from was released in 2003, but anyway… I quite like them, which makes me feel even more of an arse for mocking this utter shambles.

For balance I’ve also included their extremely tasteful cover of Aphex Twin’s Flim.

Have a nice weekend, and enjoy.
