Founded by pianist and arranger Scott Bradlee in 2009, the ensemble reimagines contemporary pop, rock and R&B hits in the style of various yesteryears, from swing to doo-wop, ragtime to Motown — or, as Bradlee himself puts it, “pop music in a time machine.”
The newest album, “The Essentials,” was released on Sept. 30. collects 18 favorites from Postmodern Jukebox’s weekly postings. Bradlee’s choice of material ranges from the ‘80s hard rock of Guns N’ Roses to hits as recent as last year’s Justin Bieber plea, “Sorry.”
