Don't tell Aubrey
Logan that jazz and pop don't mix! This
sassy singer-songwriter and world-class trombone player has heard it before,
and she's proving the doubters wrong with cross-genre tracks that bridge the
sounds of Herbie Hancockand Bruno Mars. For her latest single,
Logan jumps back to 1990 with a cover of MC Hammer's ‘U Can't Touch
hits every note and rapid-fire rap lyric of the hip-hop classic with her
four-octave jazzy vocal range, fused with swing-tinged musicianship, scatting
and of course, her own trombone playing. Her jazzy restyling of this MC Hammer
hit makes this one of the sassiest and ingenious make-overs of this year.
"I was determined to make a
classic hip-hop song in my jazz style, but had the hardest time finding one I
connected with. But one day in the supermarket, I heard MC Hammer’s 'U Can’t Touch This' playing in the
produce aisle," Logan explains "I immediately jumped for joy; started
singing along and thinking of ways to re-harmonize the track." Enjoy the jazz-tastic result!
