A pet project of jazz pianist Scott Bradlee, Postmodern Jukebox have 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. The band's latest record was this year's Swing the Vote, which included unique takes on Justin Timberlake's 'Cry Me A River' and Gwen Stefani's Hollaback Girl' amongst many others.
Postmodern Jukebox's forte is taking a track too easily 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.
