R.I.P. Bud Shank

Bud Shank, probably the earliest jazz musician to cover Dylan tunes, died Thursday at age 82. Shank's 1964 album Folk 'N Flute credited to Bud Shank & the Folkswingers contained three Dylan instrumentals: Quit Your Lowdown Ways, Don't Think Twice, It's All Right and Blowin' In The Wind. The Folkswingers included Joe Pass on guitar, other players are not credited on the LP.
LP: World Pacific WP/WPS-1819. Note: Various discographies date this LP anywhere from 1963-1966. The World Pacific discography at Both Sides Now Publications lists it as a 1964 release.
