Paris DJs Soundsystem - Who Is Molesting Laura ? (part 8)
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2009-08-26
We received many messages of hope that we'd keep on accosting, assailling, abusing, disturbing and more maltreating of our dear Laura. Here's the JAZZ take on the story. If you're into tasty covers of classics, into Jazz or even into Stevie or Sly Stone, you should find the kind of stuff you enjoy, in this soundtrack to the life of a perpetually molested girl!
01. Ed Maciel E Sua Orquestra - Michelle
(from 'Na Onda' album, 1966 / London Records)
Beautifully arranged big band cover of The Beatles, if anyone's got the Volumes 4/6/7/8/9/10 or 11 of the Na Onda series from Ed Maciel please share...

02. Earl Grant - Fever
(from 'The Versatile Earl Grant' album, 1958 / Decca)

03. Dennis Chambers - In Time
(from 'Outbreak' album, 2002 / ESC Records)
The funk and jazz-rock drums virtuoso kills it all here with this non-revolutionnary but technically flawless Sly and The Family Stone cover.

The same Stevie cover, taken from another fantastic album, and featuring an incredible set of musicians too: Chuck Rainey on bass, Arthur Adams on guitar, Paul Humphreys on drums, George Bohannon on trombone, and, of course, the mighty Charles Kynard on organ. Make it funky jazz!
