I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off the new year than with an amazing tune. I love trombones. Like serious – LOVE everything about them and even more – the sound they make. So of course – Mark Ronson and his gang of amazing musicians fit perfectly in here. This year, the Re:Generation Music Project has asked him, and 4 other amazing DJs , to reinvent 5 different genres of music (from classical to jazz), and they documented in film – to be released on Feb 16, 2012 in the US.
This year feels like it will be all about reinvention. From the individual to the institution and from cultural artifacts to the full-blown economy and powers that make this world turn.
And in celebration of that…here’s Mark Ronson’s contribution to the Re:Generation Music Project, featuring amazing artists like Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Trombone Shorty, members of the Dap Kings and drummer Zigaboo Modeliste. Enjoy!
