After a great jazz week, why not extend it for another week showing groups making a difference in the genre. And this week we will be featuring Pink Turtle, an awesome french swing jazz band, making a great cover of Billie Jean by the King of Pop and giving a nice mix with ZZ Top close to the end of the song (yes, ZZ Top! you will see that actually it will be an easy arrangement but really good).
Apart from this wonderful group, this week we are going to have some of Zaz, PMJ (a bit more), and many other people making a difference in today’s jazz world. The power of Jazz lies in its rich contrast: improvised versus predetermination, chaos versus control and light and gentle sounds versus sharp and shrill tones. Jazz is also unique in influencing many genres in a subtle manner.
Let’s give this 2nd week of Jazz a bit of great people making magic in this genre. Jazz mode Continues!

About the curator - Rodrigo Medrano
At a very early age, music had an incredible impact on Rodrigo’s life. He was never able to listen to lullaby songs; instead he was served Guns n’ Roses and Aerosmith for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
At the age of 12, he became a melomaniac, collecting albums, EP’s, recording sessions, and researching every kind of genre. All this helped him to get his first job at a recording studio where he realized his life would forever revolve around sound and music.
Working on cruise ships as First Audio Technician allowed him to let loose his passion and expand his knowledge on psychoacoustics, eventually promoted up to being in charge of sound for the hit broadway shows: Rock of Ages and Burn The Floor.
His music library will never stop growing as his melomania will get worse and worse.
