Hi, Neapolitan - Thanks for posting these - I actually love the balalaikas playing "Yesterday". Never heard that one before.

In case you have not seen it, MrBeatlesCovers's YouTube channel has 396 Beatles covers uploaded:

That Wes Montgomery track is awesome... but here's Stanley Jordan's take on the same tune:



I also remember a full cover album by George Benson called 'The Other Side of Abbey Road'. It's a funkier / jazzier take on the whole disc. Their version of I Want You (She's So Heavy) is fantastic but youtube is missing the full track so I won't bother linking it.

I have an old vinyl copy, originally owned by my father, and a Japanese CD of Ramsey Lewis's beautifully produced and arranged Mother Nature's Son album. The album was recorded just a month after the release of The Beatles(White Album) and consists of ten jazz covers of songs from that record. A couple of the tracks are available on YouTube so I thought I'd post them:

Hope you will be able to get it. The colors of sound and varying tempos in the arrangements, the very tasteful piano playing and drumming...it all makes for a unique listening experience.

It's not that obscure as a track to find but that doesn't detract from how damn good this is. Their take on the track just fits their skittish sound so well.
