Rigamortis Cover

Great jazz cover of one of my favorite Kendrick Lamar songs, Rigamortis, which of course is inspired by the great jazz song The Thorn by Willie Jones III.

  1. Thanks for the introduction to such a heavy player. The fact that he won the Thelonious Monk competition speaks volumes in my book. Dude has serious chops! Love the Sony 7506 headphones he’s rockin’ in the video.

  2. Your post triggered a little exploration on my part and I stumbled upon another person named “Kendrick” you might dig: Kendrick Scott. He’s an awesome drummer who also happens to be an HSPVA graduate AND WordPress user, http://kendrickscott.com/. I didn’t expect that. I was also pleasantly surprised to discover that Willie Jones III is teaching in my own “backyard” at Northwestern University. Being clueless never felt so good!

      1. You know your players, Matt! One final nugget: Geof Bradfield–another HSPVA grad–is really “on fire!” He’s a phenomenal saxophonist who happens to be playing at the Chicago Jazz Festival tonight. Looks like he switched to WordPress within the past several months (http://geofbradfield.com/). Just another artist on WordPress… Cheers!
