Dylan Cover #513 Paris Jazz Sessions Featuring Ellen Birath "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" 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 Paris Jazz Sessions Featuring Ellen Birath playing " Don't Think Twice, It's All Right"
Jazzy January has invade Mondays! All this month we will check out various artists covering Dylan with a jazz vibe.

Thought's on Original:
From the first time we reviewed a cover of this tune:
This song is so iconic and flat out awesome, even people who dislike Dylan have to enjoy this tune right? Biting and yet not bitter, a toss off of the grandest proportions, "Don' Think Twice, It's All Right" is epic and yet so straight forwardly simple. It easily ranks as one of the bard's best works, truly a classic and has been covered by so many people in so many ways.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
This is our first time hearing Ellen Birth and the Paris Jazz Sessions. All of the artists in the video are as follows: PARIS jazz SESSIONS - « Don’t think twice it’s alright » (Bob Dylan) Feat. Ellen Birath. The Rooftop Session - recorded live at La Bellevilloise Paris Philippe Maniez - Arrangement Ellen Birath - Vocal Nicolas Blampain - Guitar Bastien Brison - Piano Edouard Pennes - Bass David Paycha - Drums Jeanne Michard - Alto Sax Noé Codjia - Trumpet Mathieu Najean - Tenor Sax Nam Nguyen - Violin Alexandre Pascal - Violin Marie Lèbre - Alto Maude Pagès - Cello Edouard Pennes - Son Hadrien Pennes - Vidéo

Thoughts on Cover:
A quick and light cover with lots of instrumentation, but it never gets weighed down by sentimentality, cheese, or anything. Tiny quick string flourishes and brief sax solos are expertly sprinkled in without dragging the pace of the tune down at all. It is covered in the spirit it was written and works wonderfully.
