How often do you hear something that's like nothing you have heard before?
Not often, I suspect. Music in the early 21st century has mellowed into an average mediocrity of blandness.
Every track you hear sounds pretty much like everything else, or something you heard back in the days when music was truly creative.
But here's something that is really different - Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix, played on medieval instruments.
The track, performed by Tam Nighingale and his band of musicians, is currently featured in a trailer for a series of programs on the UK's BBC4 channel about the medieval period of history.
But it sounds so amazing that we long to hear the entire album!
