Gonzalo Bergara Quartet: Walking You Home
Apocalyptica was cool because they covered Metallica tracks with cellos alone. To my knowledge, they never made the transition to playing music where listeners heard original pieces. Hell, they mighta just stuck with their shtick and rode that wave as long as they could.
Gonzalo Bergara Quartet is cool because they make inspired, upbeat and beautiful music. Original music to boot (put that in your pipe Apocalypica!). The lot was heavily influenced by gypsy jazz maestro of the ’30s, Django Reinhardt. I’m sure he’s tapping his toes in his grave and loving what his young students are playing. I sure am.
