20 Feb Music Worth Noting Pt. 4
This week’s Music Worth Noting features some great music that blurs genres and gives us music that is fresh, new and, in one case, educational. Enjoy!
“Uptown Funk” will make you want to dance and smile, which is why you have probably heard it on the radio and in the mall at least a dozen times. We’ll take it for granted that you have already heard this song several times and play you the unique version of the video without background music.
What happens when you’re a physicist and you see no one listening to important talks about climate change? Well, you set the lecture to music performed by a string quartet. That’s the successful formula Robert Davies found when he connected with the Fry Street Quartet. Pairing the music with images around the world has performed at several places around the world.
We love music that mixes sounds and cultures to create a one-of-a-kind sound that is just what Akyazici was accomplished. He was born in Turkey but received his jazz education in the United States at New York’s New School and jazz guitar legend Jim Hall. He has since returned to his homeland and takes Turkish pop hits and gives them a jazz edge. Check it out!
