It’s funny how things work out sometimes in the music world. Take this pretty rad cover of Nat King Cole’s “Calypso Blues” by Theophilus London, for example. This track leaked more than one year ago yet is only now landing on the web in a proper fashion. Normally I would turn my nose up at this sort of thing and shake my head, but I simply can’t do that here considering how well done this is. Seriously, London could find himself some decent success doing tracks like “Calypso Blues” should he ever want to give up the whole ’80s-influenced, swaggerific thing.
