Dylan Cover #613 Gary Burton "Just Like A Woman"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Gary Burton playing "Just Like A Woman"

Jazzy January has invade Mondays! All this month we will check out various artists covering Dylan with a jazz vibe.

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we covered a cover of this song:
There are a lot of songs about the greatest muse known to man, woman. This one may top the 60's generation when it comes to dealing with Mars and Venus. Respectful in one breath and slightly mocking the next, Dylan can sense the pain, and I think there is a clear honesty in those words. Well maybe "clear" is the wrong term to use, nothing is ever clear with this subject matter. Treating the topic honestly Dylan tackles the differences between the sexes and the difficulties of relationships. Bob nailed this one making it one of his all-time greats. 


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
The great vibraphonist Gary Burton was first heard by RtBE with Stan Getz. A cool cat all around.

Thoughts on Cover:
A very sweet way to kick off our month of Jazz focused Bob Dylan covers. This is a soothing and easy flowing take on the classic track. 

Happy New Year!
