Birds Got Swing: A Musical Experiment

8 July 2014

What happens when a jazz composer challenges a vocal virtuoso to match the voices of some of her favorite birds? Serious fun. Join Grammy recognized artists Maria Schneider and Theo Bleckmann in their musical experiment to help us tune in to nature’s music—from the melodious to the downright weird. You’ll never think of a sparrow or a toilet plunger in the same way again.

Then explore our Birds Got Swing playlist from the Macaulay Library archive.
