Jess Greenberg Has Outdone Herself!
Okay, ever since she superbly covered our favorite classic rock songs (anywhere from Jimi Hendrix to Led Zeppelin), we’ve been huge fans. After her hiatus in YouTube, we all wondered if she’d be back with a bang and boy, she didn’t disappoint us one bit! Here, she plays the ever-iconic “I Got You (I Feel Good)” by James Brown and we gotta say, it’s the best version we’ve ever heard!
“I Got You (I Feel Good)” is a twelve-bar blues with a brass-heavy instrumental arrangement similar to Brown’s previous hit, “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag”. It also features the same emphasis “on the one” (i.e. the first beat of the measure) that characterizes Brown’s developing funk style.
But you know she doesn’t cover easy songs so she adds Stevie Ray Vaughan to the mix. Sexy tone, solid vocals and tight playing. Really, what more can you ask for? Her guitar skills are off the charts! With that talent, we’re kinda surprised she’s not yet a big rock star!
