Amy Winehouse Covers “Round Midnight”
In case you missed this rare track, a few years ago the late singer Amy Winehouse recorded a funky interpretation of the Thelonious Monk classic “Round Midnight” on the b-side of her single “Take The Box.” The track was given a bit of a boost the other day when longtime Winehouse producer Salaam Remi reposted it via his blog. As you will hear, Winehouse’s interpretation is equally stunning as it is soulful.
And while we are on the topic of Salaam (& Amy), I had the good fortune to interview Salaam a few years ago about his process working and producing with Winehouse on the hit record “Tears Dry On Their Own” – you can listen to the podcast here. – JV
