Strange Arrangements & Covers

Saturday, June 08, 2013

For this New Sounds, hear a string quartet that is an arrangement of a Jimi Hendrix song, along with an arrangement of the Gnarls Barkley song "Crazy," by Canadian fingerstyle guitarist Don Ross.  We'll also hear a jazz-ish band, Blue Cranes, taking on the Red House Painters, a sonata for violin and piano that is actually a Brian Wilson song, and music from the Jolly Boys.  Plus, there'll be more Jimi Hendrix covers, perhaps by Ben Verdery & Turtle Island Quartet.
