Saturday Night Studio – Four Winds
So a while back, Pharrel Williams teamed up with Daft Punk (and movie score composer Hans Zimmer!), among others, to record an album. One of the singles released was “Gust Of Wind,” which is a fun, upbeat tune with some real depth to it –
The song has become so popular that the internet is saturated with people doing their own covers of it. A few of them are surprisingly good… and sometimes surprisingly different.
Stephen Jerzak did a guitar based cover which sounds pretty good. But watch his buddy Joel in the background…
At around the 3:05 point, Joel is playing three instruments at once.
Morgane & Waxx do a more low-key version, but it still has its appeal –
Valter Kabas brings the funk in an instrumental version, with some heavy awesome bass –
He’s got quite a pile of videos, there’s some terrific stuff. Especially if you’re a Jamiroquai fan.
Finally, Grace Rodgers and her band take a spin. Her version take s a minute to get used to, but once they set their groove, it works very well.
I would love to hear this group do more covers.
Heard any excellent cover songs lately? Post ’em in a comment.
