Iggy Pop To Release Jazz Album
Hellraiser IGGY POP is deserting his rock roots to record an album of jazz songs.
The Stooges frontman claims he is "sick" of uninspiring guitar music, and is embracing a new musical direction inspired by the mellow tones of American music great Louis Armstrong for his new album Preliminaires.
Pop reveals, "It's a quieter album with some jazz overtones. That's because at one point I just got sick of listening to idiot thugs with guitars, banging out crappy music. And I was starting to listen to a lot of New Orleans-era Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton-type of jazz."
