“Sweet Child o’ Mine” as Old-Timey Jazz? It Works Better Than You Might Think.

Want to hear Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child o’ Mine” played in the style of old-timey New Orleans jazz? Before you say no, give this Postmodern Jukebox cover of the classic ’80s rock song a chance. It is actually really fun, thanks in large part to the lush, powerful vocals of Miche Braden.*

Slash’s iconic guitar riff and solo are missing, but the singer’s performance more than helps to make up for it.
