Fat Friday Feature: Lake Street Dive's Bridget Kearney On "I Want You Back"

Check out the nimble fingers and fat tone that Bridget Kearney gets on this cover of the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back".  I love how her bass line approximates the "bounciness" Wilton Felder's original line (which, by the way, is so bad ass I'd be foolish not to link to it), but goes its own way in terms of groove and creativity. I also love the lush harmonies of this cover.   This is a damn fine reworking of a classic tune.
