One of my favorites is Vanessa Williams' and a jazz trio doing "What Child is This". Very well done. I believe it's on youtube.

I'm not a fan of her vocal style, but instrumentally, it's cool.

Here's a couple more.

The best modern song ever written, hands down.
I heard Jacques Brel for the first time about 15 years ago, when a friend played me a CD. I was particularly struck by the emotion in his delivery of "Ne quitte pas" and "Le Moribond". The second one especially because I remembered a very cheesy cover version entitled "Seasons in the Sun" from the 70s when I was knee high to a grasshopper - definitely not the Cat Stevens' version). The intensity had me completely gripped. It was surprising how many songs I actually knew without actually having heard the man himself. Just shows what an influence he was.

Edit: From the oracle of all wisdom, I guess the cheesy cover was Terry Jacks in 1974.
