Miles Davis once recorded the popular broadway hit “Surrey With the Fringe on Top,” opening the door for a future jazz trio to record an entire album of David Bowie songs (Ashes to Ashes: A David Bowie Intraspective). Finding fertile territory from existing popular culture has long been part of jazz tradition, and the breadth and depth of Bowie's artistry suits this dynamic vibraphone/bass/drums ensemble. They stretch out a bit more on their latest recording (Live at the Bistro), but is it too much to ask them to perform as their Bowie-esque alter-egos on their previous album cover?
