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.
