Dylan Cover #412 Hudson "Lay Lady Lay"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Hudson playing "Lay Lady Lay"
Jazzy January has invade Mondays! All this month we will check out various artists covering Dylan in a Jazz vibe, can you dig it daddy-o? 
Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we addressed a cover of this tune:
Excellent track and the first time the world heard Dylan's new singing style, which would only last for Nashville Skyline. This song is the standout track from this album, it is a classic and so simple, yet sweet and timeless. One of Dylan's best tracks, this phase was the the closest to "country" he ever got and "Lay Lady Lay" is an overall fantastic piece of music.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
We first found out about this Hudson release earlier this year, and have been digging on the album. Some of RtBE favs are inthe band so why wouldn't it be great?

Thoughts on Cover:
A less adventurous cover than "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall" but a fun, light airy take on the track which has an almost Caribbean breeze to it. Medeski's keys and Scofield's guitar lead the way bu the drums and bass lock things down expertly.
