In addition to the many mentioned already:
Stan Getz, "Blowin' in the Wind" (Reflections)
Curtis Stigers, "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight" (Real Emotional)
...and previously noted, but I love Abbey Lincoln's take on "Mr. Tambourine Man."

This week's sponsor: Lisa Hilton "Underground" with Nasheet Waits/drums, Larry Grenadier/bass and J.D. Allen/tenor sax
"Lisa Hilton has topped herself on 'Underground.' She's never played, written or expressed herself better as an artist. This is living adventurous jazz that breathes fresh but at the same time is rooted in the best parts of the past- and always deeply emotive. Surrounded by some of the finest musicians working today, Hilton hits the mark on every cut. She's joined the ranks of her own contemporary heroes." Todd Steed/WUOT
"Shimmering and spacious. Though not as well known as her session mates, Hilton easily holds her own during these performances, and her compositions clearly inspire all concerned." Mike Joyce/Jazz Times
Today is Bob Dylan's 70th birthday. Can anyone suggest some decent jazz covers of Dylan tunes?
I'm aware of Ben Sidran's recent tribute disc, for one.
