Post-Jazz

Sunday, June 19, 2011

What do you get when you infuse driving rock rhythms and cover songs, along with folk traditions of several countries together and put it in the hands and horns of jazz players?  Well, for this New Sounds, we'll call it "post-jazz."  Folks like The Bad Plus make this music, having fun by covering songs by Yes or Rush, and upping the fun quotient even more by doing arrangements of songs by Ligeti and Stravinsky.
