Jazz versions of pop songs (The Great Gatsby)

Gatsby-Jazz-600x600I am so into the 1920s music and fashion at the moment!

It all began after I watched The Great Gatsby

The coolest thing about the movie was that they did epic jazz versions of modern pop songs. The Bryan Ferry Orchestra perform the altered versions.

My favourites are:

Young and Beautiful (Lana Del Rey)

Crazy In Love (Beyonce/Emeli Sande) Amazing!!

Back to Black (Amy Winehouse)

Alicia Key’s “Empire State of Mind Part ll” was also covered beautifully! But I can’t find that version…

I am so into this New Orleans style of jazz!!

Super cool :)
