Ben Sidran, Ballad of a Thin Man

Media

Today’s Music Monday is a celebration of Bob Dylan, and of Ben Sidran’s brilliant 2009 jazz cover album.

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it here before, but Ben’s vocal style and delivery are so perfect for these songs. The way he acted out that famous scene in the second verse was brilliant:

You raise up your head, and you ask: “Is this where it is?” And somebody points to you and says “It’s his!” And you say: “What’s mine?” And somebody else says: “Well, what is?” And you say: “Oh my God! Am I here all alone!?”
