Just how cool is Brooklyn, New York?
Here’s yet another example of all the talent and creativity in NYC’s hip borough. Thanks to NPR Music we’ve posted another one of their Field Recordings from a couple of weeks ago on the steps of the Brooklyn Public Library. Three hundred and fifty musicians of all sorts of skill level, age and musical background participated (and had a blast) on the summer solstice with the world premier of a new piece from Brooklyn percussionist Sunny Jain called “100+ BPM”. Sunny has worked with everyone from Kenny Barron to Nora Jones and Peter Gabriel and is part of his own group called Red Baraata. You’re gonna love this clip. All the energy, creativity and passion is so infectious.
Watch it now.
