Sounds Good To Me Music Series: Ain'tcha Granny's Elevatah Music!

Pin It
Beethoven, Chopin, Rachmaninoff and RADIOHEAD? Throw in a little Bowie, some Guns & Roses too, and you have yourself the makings of one fine sounding orchestra. 
Huh? Just watch ;)

 L.A. based, The Section Quartet is one of my favorite contemporary chamber groups. Here, they cover David Bowie's Man Who Sold The World (which Nirvana covered on the 90s as well). As usual, I highly recommend the whole album! 

Another talented group hailing from L.A., The Vitamin String Quartet covers one of my favorite Radiohead songs: Let Down. I made myself sick listening to it about 5 years ago when I 1st discovered their album Strung Out On OK Computer, a complete cover of the whole Radiohead album Ok Computer.

Brooklyn artists, Project Trio are a chamber group comprised of two cellists and a beatboxing flutist––yes, beatboxing flutist! Listen to this version of Sweet Child O'Mine. Fantastic!

Aren't these classically trained artists SO talented???? I love listening to musicians with 'traditional' instruments do a little genre-bending. Keeps it fresh!

Check back later this week, I have something I'm proud to share with you coming up!

E. Lee---I love those guys! I'd love to see them live as well. So much energy!

Jane, I figured you'd like that Bowie thrown in there :)
