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.
