The Hot 8 Brass Band tackles Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart”

Here’s another recording session done with each of the players in their respective isolated space. The Hot 8 Brass Band recorded this version of Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart” to help raise money for American jazz musicians. I quote:

“In demanding times, musicians keep us grounded. They call up the strong, beautiful parts of our spirits. But without a single gig taking place during this crisis, there are no clubs to go to, no concerts to attend. The sudden standstill has left thousands of vulnerable artists in a state of financial free fall as they live gig to gig and month to month. The need is unprecedented but reminds us of mission and purpose to provide emergency assistance in time of crisis.”
