I’ve put together a short playlist with a mix of tunes performed by Radiohead as well as covers of Radiohead by jazz groups and tunes harmonically inspired by Radiohead.
- Exit Music (For A Film) - Radiohead
- Optimistic - Radiohead
- Nemesis - Aaron Parks
- Airbag - Radiohead
- How to Disappear Completely - Radiohead
- Exit Music (For A Film) - Brad Mehldau
- Everything in Its Right Place - Brad Mehldau
- Yeso - Guillermo Klein
- Let Down - Radiohead
- A Wolf at the Door - Radiohead
The list is a little radiohead-heavy right now but fun. I’d like to find some covers of some of the more rocking Radiohead tracks and not only the beautiful, haunting, harmonically rich tunes - not that I don’t like those as well. Off to Brad Mehldau’s discography.
Some place out there on the web is a Master class where Ethan Iverson of The Bad Plus analyzes Let Down. I couldn’t find it quickly here at work. I’ll let you all search. It’s worth a listen.
