    I was slightly disappointed - but only because I was expecting to see Bjork playing upright. :D Very cool rendition and the video was really nicely done. Thanks for posting!

    At this point, I would request that if we want to have yet another discussion of the worth of "New Standard" playing, we should do it in a dedicated thread and not hijack this one. I for one greatly appreciate what the OP has done here, and think that people should play whatever music moves them. Elitism/snobbery is a far worse transgression than playing repertoire that a few people don't appreciate, IMO. Let's try to redirect this thread to remain a discussion about the posted video in question and not a referendum on whether it's OK for a serious musician to play whatever music they want (which should, also IMO , be a total no-brainer).

    I have moved the off topic posts to a new thread for those who wish to continue the other discussion.

    I'll be truly impressed when he posts "An Army of Me" …

    Just kidding. This is exquisitely imagined, crafted and executed.

    It's funny you're the second person who talk about "army of me". It could be funny but at this time I imagine playing it at bass more than double bass.
