Straight No Chaser Podcast Featuring LUA HADAR with TWIST

… One of two relatively new releases that covered Bridge Over Troubled Water comes from Lua Hadar wIth the band TWIST, on an album called Like A Bridge. This one is definitely a world beat approach to Bridge Over Troubled Water, so instead of going for that traditional gospel sound, they’ve sort of ditched that and pianist and arranger Jason Martineau has really done a good job in giving something totally different. I think you’ll enjoy Lua Hadar’s voice and especially some of the solos by horn player Larry De La Cruz….Yes one of the really great things about music, jazz in particular, is that creative individuals can find a way to take material, whether the material is average or exceptional, such as the song Bridge Over Troubled Water, and turn it into something that is very uniquely theirs… jazz explorations that some of our best musicians do today.

CLICK THE LINK TO HEAR THE ENTIRE PODCAST, which includes examples of Bridge Over Troubled Water by Paul Simon, Aretha Franklin, Matt Wilson, and more, including Lua Hadar with TWIST.
