Amazing, Insane, beautiful – a cover but like nothing you’ve heard

Music Theory

I found this “cover” yesterday of Smells Like Teen Spirit. However, to call it a cover is probably wrong.


Its a song you’ll know and hopefully love. However, its done in a really different (good different!) way. The artist is Robert Glasper might be unknown to you unless you listen to Jazz. He has won 2 Grammy Awards and has recently scored, arranged and composed music for the Miles Davis biopic. As well as leading two projects of his own.


It really makes  me think about harmony, arrangements and feeling. Mr Glasper sure has an interesting take on all three. Plus, you can hear when Robert is pushing and pulling the timing. Really great stuff!!



Let me know what you think?!
