Mostly Blue

April 22, 2008

Wilmington, Ohio

Earlier this month, I posted the Jackson Five’s “I Want You Back.” This instrumental jazz cover, evidently pretty rare, came out three years later and vanished undeservedly. It’s both a great version of a great song, and great on its own. Take everything you know about the way the seventies sounded – horns, guitars, production – and apply it to a jazz orchestra, and that’s what you have here.

    Ah, yes. Yes it was. You loved something I gave you in that mix? I’m delighted!

    I have a crazy passion for this version. I think the original is one of nature’s perfect pop songs, but this one makes me even happier.

    How big is the actual photo you took of this wall? I love the textures and color mix here…

    Yes, the file size / resolution. Curious to see this one full size and if the textures come through.
