It takes skill to produce a good cover. Keeping the magic of the original but putting a new spin on it as well. This week's show features jazz covers of great pop songs: from Brad Mehldau covering Oasis to Gil Evans redoing a Jimi Hendrix favourite. In between, Bill Frisell plays Marvin Gaye, Joe Pass plays the Rolling Stones, and Allana Goldsmith and Alchemy cover Herbs.
