I can’t even tell you how ready I was to hate all over a jazz version of “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” But this off-kilter, deconstructed take feels like it owes as much to Radiohead as it does to Dave Brubeck. This avant-garde trio goes on a wild ride, skittering off the every few measures, only touching down on the original song’s motifs long enough to stay honest. Fantastic. Hear it here.
