Re: Funk/Jazz cover band, songs?
Cant wait to hear this band, Gust..sounds like fun. Here's what I think are good covers for what I think you're talking about:
COBHAM: Rad Baron, Stratus
HERBIE HANCOCK: Chameleon
WEATHER REPORT: Birdland, Black Market, Punk Jazz
CHICK COREA: Spain, and In the Pocket ( a little adventerous, but fun to try.. you can do it )
JACO PASTORIOUS; Chicken ( Check out Bill Stewart's version...very hip )
..........I'll think up some more........
p.s - Steely Dan would be fun if there's a singer..... Josie & Babylon Sisters is probably some of the ' best non teenage pop' ever recorded ; )
Tower of Power, as someone said is a great source to get your teeth into some very doable covers..
..good luck and I want to hear the stuff, when you guys have it down!
