A few folks have covered Junior Murvin and Lee “Scratch” Perry’s “Police and Thieves,” but as far as I know no one has done a jazz version until Zara McFarlane!

I don’t think I have ever professed my love for George Michael on this (or any other) site before. I have loved him since the 80′s and have a deeper appreciation of him as an adult.

I love backyard weddings (especially when the house is owned by the parents of the bride or groom) as it always makes for a more familial affair!

Placebo

Placebo were a Belgian jazz band with a four-piece brass section that cut albums from 1971 to 1974. Their debut LP, Balls Of Eyes, is known as being their best effort (it also won a prize at 1972’s Montreux Jazz Festival). Off that LP comes this track, “Humpty Dumpty,” with a fusion of jazz, funk, and chillness. Famously sampled by J. Dilla.

“Take Five” by Dave Brubeck was the first jazz song I ever liked, and I mean really really liked! Even though my parents had a fairly large record collection they were NOT jazz fans. Maybe it was the fact that I discovered this gem on my own that made it (still makes it) special to me.
