taking on the '20s!
A pet project of jazz pianist Scott Bradlee, Postmodern Jukebox gained a loyal following through their Youtube channel. The collective cover modern pop tracks (and some old classics as well) in a big band style. Everyone from Miley Cyrus to TLC has got the Postmodern Jukebox treatment. Now, for 2020 they're celebrating one hundred years since the 1920's - bringing the era to life through the songs of now!
Postmodern Jukebox's forte is taking a track too easily dismissed by some more 'highbrow' music lovers as disposable music for tweens and giving it a classy, big band twist. Scott Bradlee himself is a self-confessed former pop skeptic, but once users starting requesting covers from him of the latest chart hits, he began to see their innate artistic merit. He hopes that by isolating these songs from any genre or cultural baggage, Postmodern Jukebox will do the same for others.
