Some brilliant 60s covers, original artist in brackets.

Ramsay Lewis - Wade In The Water (Eva Cassidy)

Double Six - Tickle Toe (Count Basie)

Mongo Santamaria - Watermelon Man (Herbie Hancock)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEOOte8YkbQ
Eva Cassidy died in 1996 aged 33, which means she was born in 1963, so I somehow don't think she recorded the original version of Wade In The Water.

I've not heard the Double Six track before. I rather like it. The French were never very good at rock'n'roll, but they've always done Jazz rather well.
