James Blake Re-Conquers The BBC, Covers His Dad and Joni Mitchell

During a Wednesday session with BBC’s Zane Lowe, James Blake said he didn’t "get" jazz, performed a cymballed-out live take on “The Wilhelm Scream,” and played “Where To Turn,” a yacht-prog song recorded by his father, James Litherland, that Blake’s “Wilhelm” roughly covers. Here's his dad's blueprint (via Abeano):

Then, following a weird which-stock-sample-is-better session reminiscent of a trip to the eye doctor’s, Blake debuted an Antony-esque piano cover of Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You,” cherry-topping probably the most eye-opening half hour of live radio in 2011.
