Paul Nowell Covers Mike Posner's Please Don't Go

Today, a friend of mine shared this video on Facebook. I have had a few exchanges with Paul Nowell on Twitter (@jazztrombonist) before seeing this performance. Paul shows that sometimes pop music such as this has some hidden depth to it that can be coaxed out of it with the proper adaptations. I'm a big fan of musicians who cover a piece of popular music and reinvent it. When done well, reinventions bring out nuances in the original song that sometimes enhance its effectiveness. For a comparison of Paul's arrangement to the original, click here.


At the end of the video, Paul gives us a funny little invitation to subscribe to his YouTube channels. You might just take him up on it.
