One can never know quite what to expect in heading over to Rainn Wilson’s site, Soul Pancake. Though always interesting, it’s not necessarily a destination site for music, which makes it all the more delightful to go there and find Lake Street Dive performing a beautiful, jazz-inflected cover of George Michael‘s “Faith” on a sidewalk.

Incorporating trumpet, upright bass, brushed snare and cymbal, and dancing jazz vocals and scat singing, the song bursts with all the life of George Michael’s original and is full of enough genuine beauty to forever erase Limp Bizkit’s rendition from your memory. Enjoy.

Check out more from Lake Street Dive at their website.

    Fantastic ….even better is their version of I Want You Back – sung on a Boston sidewalk – check it out on Youtube. Also excellent original songs too. I’m now busy tracking down everything I can find by the band on Itunes/Amazon. 4 great musicians/singers – where have they been hiding ? !
