Sue – new David Bowie music

After listening 4 times I can say this is really outstanding. The drums from the Maria Schneider Orchestra really make the difference. If this was an electronic production, there would be less to enjoy musicwise in this new David Bowie song called Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime). The vocals are spot on, and the orchestra builds up frantically while a soprano saxophone somewhere in the distance adds details.
Compare this to what? It is unlike almost anything Bowie did – and that is a hard act to follow. Might remind us a bit of what Bjork did with Big Band settings (It’s Oh So Quiet). And somehow Zappa comes to mind (Grand Wazoo) – if you leave out Bowie’s vocals.
