COVERED: Grover Washington Jr. vs. Ty

Normally I like to do “new” record cover homages/parodies, since I’d be able to do old ones infinitetly. However, I take exception to this.

If you’re a jazz fan or are a cratedigger, then you have no doubt seen Mister Magic by Grover Washington Jr.. Even if you’ve never heard the album, the photo of him coming out of the pool with face to the lens is memorable. Fast forward 30 years or so to the UK, where British rapper Ty decided to honor the late jazz saxophonist with his homage. I like it.
