EDITORS’ NOTES

Don’t let the name fool you: This ensemble doesn’t deal in over-intellectualized performances. By retrofitting modern pop hits into swing and pop-jazz arrangements that held sway in decades (or centuries) past, Scott Bradlee’s players emphasize the eternal qualities of strong melodies. After all, new jack swing drew from jazz, so it makes perfect sense to take Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” and turn it into a sashaying midtempo number full of trombone flourishes. You’ve likely never heard “All About That Bass” with as much sass, either.

Outstanding!

Have seen PMJ live twice as well as some of the singers on their own tours. This is a great collection. Looking forward to more wonderful arrangements and I love their live shows. Morgan James' MAPS and 'Burn' with Cristina Gatti et al, were the two songs that hooked me long ago. Scott Bradlee's jazzy arrangement and Sara Niemietz's rendition of 'Hey Ya" is fabulous

Awesome remixes

I love the different remixes of all of the different songs! I'm going to definitely buy more in the future!

Yecccchhh

Every Pop song you'd hoped you'd never again be subjected to, played poorly in a style that died 80 years ago.

I find it hard to beleive anybody can sit through more than a few minutes of this.
