Zach Nielsen of the blog, Take Your Vitamin Z, has recently released his first jazz EP, Songs In a Minor Key. The album features five songs, three of which are jazz standards. The other two are jazz arrangements of Nirvana’s Come As You Are and The Police’s Message In A Bottle.
I’ve been listening to the album over the past week. I’m definitely not the avid jazz listener, but I’ve enjoyed this album. The two pop covers are engaging takes on the well-known originals. Overall though, I think Nardis is my favorite track. It’s extremely laid back, something you’d listen to while reclining on your back porch and drinking iced tea.
