I think The Fall's A Figure Walks might be a tribute to Foolkiller.

I know there was a Brian Auger single of the song anyway. Thought I had it on a compilation of their work somewhere. maybe it was the charly compilation i got of them early on. Looks like it was an expanded version of Jools & Brian, possibly a volume of Remembering.

Weird to have a tribute album with no jazz players on it.

Good point, although hopefully Taj will deal with that feel, also maybe incl. right musos---as will Raitt, if it's her original cover, from Takin' My Time: Ernie Watts, Milt Holland, Oscar Brashear etc. appear on there. I wonder if there has been a jazz world tribute? Think Van Morrison's Mose set was one of his Blue Note albums, but I haven't heard it.
From 1988, when he was 61 or thereabouts, here he is at the top of his keyboard game, like some blues- bopping Professor Longhair, roque-rolling with it (some vocals too):

been listening to the Western Man album quite a bit lately, which features the awesome "nightclub," so i'm curious about that one definitely.
