In the meantime please turn on your speakers, turn the volume up a little, click play and enjoy these videos of my newest favorite, Duke Special (a.k.a. Peter Wilson). Duke Special is very theatrical and narrative songwriting. Sort of Vaudeville meets big band and bebop with a twinge of Dresden Dolls style gritty macabre. There's also A-mazing orchestration. Seriously, if you in the least enjoy a well-orchestrated piece of music, you have to give Duke Special a try. Enough of my descriptors. Go, click, listen!
Below are 2 versions of the same song. One is with the entire band; the other piano and voice only. As an orchestration demonstration. 'Cause I'm a music nerd like that and really enjoy listening to such things. As an aside, I have no idea what all the head-spinny business is about in the first video. Some sort of 1910s/20s toy I would guess.
