BADBADNOTGOOD Perform Flying Lotus' Putty Boy Strut at TEDxToronto

You may remember BADBADNOTGOOD as the young group of Torontonians that rose to infamousy after giving jazz renditions of some of the most influential in music, including, Tyler, the Creator, Kanye West and James Blake. Now, however, in a recent appeal to the masses, the trio has headed up a show at Toronto’s TEDx event and premiered a single which would seem highly suited for the band.

By bringing together their spontaneous and always lively talent to the stage, the band have created a wicked new cover of Flying Lotus‘ highly touted single, “Putty Boy Strut,” through the addition of freely playing sax solos, crashing drum sets, and masterful piano playing.

What initially starts off with a cover of a Zelda song, slowly (but not quietly) shapes into  “Putty Boy Strut” thanks to a tempestuous saxophone and the bump of a drum kick — highly resembling the unique movement of the original.

If you don’t believe us, be sure to check out the original as well as the band’s rendition down below and prepare to have your mind blown! Who knew jazz music could sound so damn good!
