So I have three finals today, and I am between the first and second, so this is going to be a quick post. I just stumbled across an MTV video (yes, MTV) that has Andrew Bird and Yo-Yo Ma having a "mini jam session". I was lucky enough to witness the genius that is Andrew Bird when he came through Ithaca a few months back and even though I was a fan before, he blew my mind live and I have been obsessed ever since. After the show, I got to talk with him, and I must say that he is a shy, modest man when not performing, and it seems to me that his vulnerability seeps through a bit in this video.
Bird's newest album will be released in January, but you can get a sneak peek at his site, by streaming a few of his new songs.
