KU Jazz Ensembles to perform jazz-infused modern music from Radiohead, Bjork and more

Modern pop, indie and rock music can easily be tweaked and changed into swinging jazz ballads. Sure, it was cheesy when Paul Anka recorded (and sold?) his 2005 album, Rock Swings, which contained a jazz rendition of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” But while you were cringing as the song’s “dulcet” tones flowed into your ears, you probably chuckled at least once, right?
