Dylan Cover #514 Vertigo Jazz Trio "Make You Feel My Love" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Vertigo Jazz Trio of "Make You Feel My Love" 

Thoughts on Dylan Original:
From our first take on a cover of this tune:
There is something about this tune that always felt off to me, it doesn't strike me as a Dylan song (which makes it an excellent candidate for covers). Perhaps it is just too Broadway or schmaltzy but the tune never really felt like his to me. Simple and direct in it's lyrics and sparse with a piano for the tune, it should be a simple pleasure, but it always felt forced to me coming out of the bard's mouth.  The fact that he has never played it live perhaps gives some indication to his feelings on the song as well. Or maybe he just hasn't found a way to re-work it yet....

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Have not heard of Vertigo Jazz Trio before this cover song. 

Thoughts on Cover:
A fairly straight ahead version of this song led by the piano and gorgeous vocals. A soothing cover for this winter Monday in NYC. Enjoy it wherever you are.
