Music is such a wonderful thing. And with a slight twist, a modern pop tune can be turned into a jazzy song that will bring you back in time.
Through his deep passion for jazz music, Scott Bradlee formed Postmodern Jukebox (PMJ), an amazing group of musicians who would perform pop songs in true 20th-century style.
Bradlee, who is a striving jazz pianist in New York City, first began reworking current pop songs as an exercise. He started collaborating with a rotating assembly of musicians to produce covers of pop songs in the styles of jazz, ragtime, and swing.
However, they did not burst onto the public radar until they performed the doo-wop cover of Miley Cyrus‘ “We Can’t Stop”. The cover video has more than 13.5 million views and collectively, their YouTube channel currently boasts over 276 million views and over 1.35 million subscribers.
Since then, they have been featured in highly-regarded publications such as The Huffington Post and the Los Angeles Times, and have been interviewed by Billboard and NPR Music. Many sang praises of their musical talents and it’s no surprise that they managed to dominate Billboard’s Jazz Albums chart, with 6 of their albums concurrently charting at the Top 10. They even sold out more than a 100 shows in more than 30 countries worldwide.
Through their impressive social media statistics and features in the media, PMJ proved that they’re force to be reckoned with. To add fire to their success, the ever-growing, rotating collection of talent is finally doing a world tour so that they take their audiences down the memory lane and unite the generations in the form of music.
Bradlee’s PMJ will make their way to Kuala Lumpur for their first-ever performance in Malaysia this September.
