Two thumbs up for the review, although they failed to work in a mention of the album's real inspiration, The Jungle Book's beloved bear.

I liked Gus Van Sant's Psycho.

The drums don't count as part of the music, silly.

(Actually, the drums don't sound that different to me. They're both using brushes to go bup b-dup dup in the right speaker. Maybe if I had a refined ear and could read music I would be able to identify the difference.)

But yes, I did only listen to the first ten seconds.

Cobb's brushwork is much softer than Shea's, which is rather sharp and loud, with a more sudden attack.

Yeah, re: 8.

Drumming is actually a general annoyance for me with a lot of recent-ish jazz. It's all a bit over-played, doesn't swing enough, and tends towards the 'splashy'.

I also don't really get the project. As a conceptual joke, it's a pretty weak/lazy one, and as a musical project it seems .... pointless.

Note-for-note recreations only have aesthetic value if done in 8-bit.

10 pwned by 1?

On Facebook the prominent curmudgeon/bassist Damon Smith was going on about how while the MOPDTK frontline is super accomplished technically (Irabagon won the Thelonious Monk sax competition one year), Shea just doesn't have the straight-ahead chops to attempt this, however good he might be in other contexts.

Yup, Cobb's rhythm is gently swung but the 2014 version is sharply dotted .. as if someone had yelled 'Clean up that rhythm!'

If nothing else, this demonstrates that the uncanny valley is not exclusively a visual phenomenon.
