Bon Iver: "Lump Sum" ft. Eau Claire Memorial Jazz Ensemble
Bon Iver main man Justin Vernon's reported set with Eau Claire Memorial's Jazz Ensemble (aka his high school's band ) went down last night, and in addition to performing the songs of Duke Ellington, the Jazz Ensemble backed Vernon up on a few Bon Iver tracks, including "Lump Sum," from his excellent For Emma, Forever Ago. The high schoolers do a more than competent job backing Vernon up, and that marimba player is never going to have a more high profile part than his solos coming out of the choruses. And whoever plays flute totally wails near the 2:30 mark.
