Blue Jupiter: Twisted Broadway, Volume One [CD]
Blue Jupiter, a New York City-based contemporary a cappella group, announces the release of Twisted Broadway Volume 1 (An A Cappella Album). “Twisted Broadway" delivers classic Broadway show tunes, but each has been twisted, boldly re-imagined in Blue Jupiter’s high energy a cappella style. Listeners will immediately recognize the hits from classic shows like Wicked, Pippin, Porgy and Bess, The Sound of Music, Chicago, The Wizard of Oz, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and more. But they’ve never heard them like this before. Where groups like Post Modern Jukebox, deliver modern songs in old fashioned styles, Blue Jupiter prefers time travel in the opposite direction. "Twisted Broadway" features classic Broadway songs with a wickedly modern, contemporary a cappella sound.
Marty Gasper, Blue Jupiter’s beatboxer and producer says, "There are so many great Broadway songs. But how do you shake off the one thing that poisons artistry the most; the one thing that the original composers struggled to banish -how do you banish predictability? For Blue Jupiter, the answer is to find a twist. Use the twist of present to explore the past. Use the twist of harmony and beatbox to tell these timeless stories so that we can hear classic Broadway as if the ink was just barely dry.”
