Wayne Krantz: Strokes Cover Night
Wayne Krantz: Strokes Cover NightPosted by Cosbibi on May 14, 2011 at 1:47 pm
New York Fusion Guitarist Wayne Krantz recently did an all covers night of The Strokes new album with a band including Keith Carlock (Steely Dan and John Mayer) and James Genus (Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea and Saturday Night Live Band). I wonder whether many of you Strokes fans can bear this type of music, but I found it a pretty unique take on the Strokes.

Questioner: The Strokes? Why?
Wayne Krantz: I had seen a lousy review of their new record – I think it’s called “Angles” – in The Guardian. Bad reviews usually tell me that the critic isn’t up to the task, so I made a point of checking the CD out and, sure enough, it was pretty good.
