Dylan Cover #419 Katarina Pejak Trio "Million Miles" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a live cover by Katarina Pejak Trio playing "Million Miles"

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
From the barren blues of Time Out Of Mind comes "Million Miles". While not a standout on that album, the song was prophetic, hinting at the fantastic twelve bar blues variations that would dominate his next two releases. When first heard though it doesn't jump out, just feels like yet ANOTHER solid track from the bard.


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
This is RtBE's first time hearing the Katarina Pejak Trio, but this cover would have fit fairly snugly in Jazzy January.

Thoughts on Cover:
A really solid bluesy cover of the tune with great electric keyboard work from Pejak, jazz influenced drumming from Slaven Ljujic and bass from Ana Protulipac.  Just another reason this Monday series brings us joy, we get to find covers like this randomly from wide ranging artists influenced by Bob.
