Lump Sum – Justin Vernon @ Eau Claire Memorial Jazz

20 Jan

I came across this recently and I just can’t stop listening to it. You probably remember Lump Sum off of Bon Iver’s (or Justin Vernon’s) album For Emma, Forever Ago, and if you haven’t heard that song, drop everything and go listen to it right now. This version was performed by Justin Vernon at the Eau Claire Memorial Jazz festival, and it’s unbelievably good.

There’s a great flute solo in there that is likely to give you chills. Justin Vernon also played a jazzier version of For Emma which was also great, so I recommend finding that as well. Also, on the video front, all of the films of the actual performance of the song are from far away, so I’ve opted to give you a really cool video of the band rehearsing with Justin Vernon. In my opinion it’s something different and interesting to watch. Enjoy.
