Patti Smith may be the godmother of punk, but she has jazz chops, too. The rocker took on the old standard "I Ain't Got Nobody" for Boardwalk Empire Volume 2: Music from the HBO Original Series, getting into spirit and curling her vocals around the playful woodwinds, tasteful brass and sauntering drums. It's a different sound for Smith, but she's right at home on the swinging jazz tune.
Boardwalk Empire Volume 2 features big band, jazz, ragtime and more covered by the likes of Elvis Costello, Liza Minnelli, St. Vincent, Rufus Wainwright and Neko Case. It's set for a September 3rd release on ABKCO Records; pre-orders are available on Amazon. The fourth season of Boardwalk Empire will begin September 8th on HBO.
