    does anyone know of any good "jazz" versions of rock songs?

    (I have a really cool cover by Ben Folds Five of Hendrix's Crosstown traffic)

    I like Tuck & Patti's version of "Little Wing/Castles Made of Sand". And Cassandra Wilson's version of "Love is Blindness".

    Herbie Hancock did a bunch of pop songs as jazz in an album called "New Standard".

    I like the way that Christian McBride treats SteelyDan's "Aja" like a Jazz standard on his SciFI album - he also does the Police's "Walkling on the Moon" on that album!!

    I can tell you the worst example I have heard of this !! ;) So there is a Freddie Hubbard album which has a Jazz treatment of John Lennon's "Cold Turkey" - which just sounds so "wrong"! I don't think it was included on the original LP but is added to the CD.
