Brooklyn's Banjo Ukulele Band
I have to thank Bill for telling me about Les Chauds Lapins. They perform 1920s and 30s French songs using of all instruments: THE BANJO UKULELE. Their amazing interpretation of "These Foolish Things" ["Ces Petites Choses"] is absolutely stunning. You must go to their MySpace page right now and listen to it. I mean it. And "Vous Etes Jolie" makes me melt... I want to be able to play my banjo uke like that. It's the most beautiful music I have heard in a very long time. I've got chills.
I also like that the English translation of Les Chauds Lapins is the hot rabbits. Heh. Heh. Heh.
