David Bowie, “Sue” (Or in a Season of Crime)

Another impressive song from David Bowie in recent years is “Sue." There is two different arrangements of this single. Here in  the video clip is the radio edit version of the first arrangement made by Maria Schneider.  She has a jazz band called Maria Schneider Orchestra. She is a composer, a conductor. A woman conductor is still very rare these days I guess?  (For anyone interested in her band’s performance  you can watch this clip.)  

I was very surprised and really intrigued when I first heard this song from HBO’s Bowie Documentary.  This modern, jazzy version of the arrangement refreshes my impression of the rock star.  I still remember he sang “Nature Boy" for the movie “Moulin Rouge" years ago.  That cover version is really like a song from some musicals.  So again, in his last years, he is still an inspiration to the world.

David Bowie, “Sue” (Or in a Season of Crime) 有 “ 6 則迴響 ”

  1. 這首歌跟他以前(平常)的風格很不一樣。
    他的延展很多樣! 難怪這十多年來學院派的理論學家和音樂學家開始討論他~ ^^

      1. 這個稱號很特別! 聯想到他的音樂,連我這對他不熟悉的人都有無限想像力~
        我對 David Bowie 的認識先是來自於 Bruce Springsteen,後來在紐約念書有一堂音樂學的課,是討論音樂與社會學和性別學的,David Bowie 赫然在許多論文中出現。 研讀這些論文,免不了就會聽他的音樂。
        美國文化和學院派是這麼連結起來的~ 很有意思。
