Verve Remixed

So about a year ago, I ran across the Verve Remixed collections (volume 1 & 2) which have taken some serious jazz vocals songs and turned them over to electronic DJs to remix. Many of them are quite interesting, although some are complete failures. Two that I like quite a bit are:

Sinnerman - Nina Simone & Felix Da Housecat
Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair - Nina Simone & Jaffa

Some of these songs on this compilation are a disaster like the Tricky song but there are some gems.

Also, if you love Nina Simone, which I do, check out Live at Ronnie Scott's...

RadioK (www.radiok.org) was playing several of the tracks from this collection last year. It's great stuff, especially the Sinnerman (Nina Simone & Felix Da Housecat) remix. Manteca (Dizzy Gillespie) was also quite good.
