The Wood Brothers cover Michael Jackson

About This Episode

We've had such fine performances from other acoustic acts this year that it seemed like a safe bet to invite The Wood Brothers into the round room. The band--which features Chris Wood of Medeski, Martin & Wood--chose one of the toughest songs on the list, too: Michael Jackson's "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)." (Fun fact: "P.Y.T." was the sixth single from Thriller, an album that only has nine songs.) Instead of the full dance treatment, The Wood Brothers broke it down to guitar, bass, and "shit-tar," which is a guitar modified for use as a percussion instrument. There may also be cameos, so stick around. The Wood Brothers' latest album is Live Volume One: Sky High. Enjoy.
