"Naima" and "Round Midnight" are two of the most covered tunes in music, they're both great tunes, but possibly too covered. 
First, which tune do you prefer, and also, maybe list a favorite version or least favorite version or particularly weird version.

Various musicians cover it. I think that it is splendid music together. I like "Naima" personally, but have not yet come across the cover which, as a result, is beyond an original. Even other covers may still enjoy "Round Midnight". I have a version of Herbie Hancock, but often hear it. Therefore, I went to Round Midnight, too.

I have a lot of versions of "Naima", but one of the weirdest was on an LP I found in a thrift store by a metal band on a local label, I eventually traded the album off and I don't remember the band's name, but I still have the song on a cassette mix tape somewhere.

Yes, I knew Naima of the David Garfield version, but it was not so good. Ermm

Although I've heard loads of versions of Round Midnight, I have only heard Naima by McCoy Tyner and John McLaughlin of which the former was OK but the latter sucked heinously (I ain't even heard Coltrane's originalEmbarrassed)
