Many Shades of Black


Who says brass sections are not rock’n’roll? Everything is rock’n’roll in the hands of proper rock stars. This particular brass section is very badass, and really adds to the drama. The Raconteurs are a very intense group, especially onstage, but here the drama is almost campy. It’s not a joke, but it is exaggerated. The trumpet flourishes just make everything so much more flamboyant. Yet still absolutely badass, of course. BTW, if proper rock stars aren’t your thing, there’s a lovely toothless version by Adele that may be more your speed.
