Nandi Bushell Plays Saxophone on Jazz Cover of New Orleans Rhythm Kings’ “Tin Roof Blues”: Watch
Nandi Bushell continues to impress with her latest cover rendition of New Orleans Rhythm Kings’ “Tin Roof Blues.”
In the video shared via Bushell’s socials, the young British multi-instrumentalist delivers strictly saxophone-based performance of the leisurely, loose number. Though the typically exuberant performer fit the tone by mostly containing her excitement aside from a few knowing head nods between bars, she also busted out a seamless solo that she boasted in the caption as “all me.”
“It’s almost been 2 years since I got my #yamaha #saxophone,” she shared with the video. “I was inspired by watching Lisa on @thesimpsons. I #LOVE it. It’s helped me learn about #jazz and #blues opening my mind to lots of new #music.” Ah, if only Bleeding Gums Murphy could see this today. Watch the cover below.
Nandi Bushell’s cover of “Tin Roof Blues” isn’t the first time she has attempted a jazz cover for her popular music covers series. Previously, she’s shown off her saxophone chops on a multi-track solo rendition of John Coltrane’s “Mr. P.C.” and more recently on a drum take of Duke Ellington’s “Caravan.” In December, she showcased her sax skills further with a composite cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Sir Duke.”
