Indie rock giant and one man orchestra Andrew Bird has done it all. He’s sold out European tours, made late-night talk show rounds and he’s even written and performed a song for The Muppets. Bird mixes indie rock with folk, New Orleans style jazz and gypsy influences to create a sound distinct for its idiosyncrasies and nuance. His most recent album, “Are You Serious” is nominated for a Grammy for the best non-classical engineered album. In anticipation of his show at The Blue Note, I’ve put together a playlist combining some of my personal favorites, as well as some tunes you’re sure to hear Monday night.
