Neil Young Cover “Heart of Gold” Live

Last month we released a live video of Neil Young’s “Heart of Gold” the same day it hit No. 1 on radio across Canada and the U.S. many years before, in 1972. My arrangement explores elements of this fundamentally Canadian song within a Jazz context. This version was recorded live at The Jazz Room on March 23. Watch the video here on Facebook, or here on YouTube.
