Hommage à Syd Barrett
We have had some blog posts on jazz and hiphop versions of Nick Drake songs (here is one), and since I love cover songs, I noticed that All About Jazz reviewed I.Overdrive Trio´s "Hommage à Syd Barrett" (Cristal 2008) yesterday. Or don´t we call jazz versions covers?
I have never heard this band, and not their album yet (AAJ were pretty late too!), but I have checked out some videos, and they sound OK! How about "Dominoes" from "The Madcap Laughs" (1970), to pick one?
Feel free to comment if you know, love or hate (oh - please, be nice!) this trio.
I.Overdrive Trio is Philippe Gordiani (guitar), Bruno Tocanne (drums) and Remi Gaudillat (trumpet).
