Monday Music: All About That (Upright) Bass

From the "Postmodern Jukebox,"a fun cover of Megahn Trainor's "All about That Base." This one features  Kate Davis (vocals and bass), David Tedeschi (drums), and Scott Bradlee (piano)

From Wikipedia:

"All About That Bass" is a bubblegum pop, doo-wop song in the retro style of the 1950s and 1960s, containing a complex mix of a variety of genres. Lyrically, it is a call-out to embrace inner beauty, positive body imageryand self-acceptance. The song was released on June 30, 2014, as the EP and album's lead single and received favorable reviews from music critics for its catchy tune and throwback sound. The track's lyrical content, however, became subjected to controversy with critics dismissing it for anti-feminism and cultural appropriation. NBC's Today named "All About That Bass" as 2014's "Song of the Summer". Listed as one of the year's best songs by a variety of publications, it has earned two nominations at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards for Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
