Jazz and Grunge? You Bet.

I love jazz. I have mixed feelings about Nirvana.

Check out this instrumental jazz version of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by The Bad Plus. I found this a few months ago and listened to it about ten times in a row. It's good and also fascinating to think that there could be any middle ground between that early 90s world of Kurt Cobain's crew and classy cool jazz.

This isn't The Bad Plus's first foray into unconventional covers, either. Apparently they've covered the Pixies, David Bowie, Blondie, and Black Sabbath to name a few.
