  • Watch Lady Gaga Crash Fred Durst's Jazz Show With Frank Sinatra Covers
    POSTED 17 Mar 2019



    Did you know that Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst hosts a weekly jazz night called Fred'z at the Black Rabbit Rose lounge in Hollywood? We didn't either, but apparently he does, and this week the pop megastar Lady Gaga surprised everyone by swinging through to play some smooth Frank Sinatra covers.

    It's impossible to imagine the nu-metal vocalist who has written songs like 'Nookie' and 'Break Stuff' being remotely associated with a genre like jazz, but there you go. 

    Durst actually did an interview with LA Weekly some months ago about Fred'z, where he explained its inspiration:

    "I’m a big fan of jazz. I have been for a long time. It’s not necessarily something that people who know me from Limp Bizkit know about me personally. It’s one of the things I’m really fond of, so I travel around to different spots to hear different players. Some word-of-mouth stuff. Sometimes some older cats.

    I’m just really impressed with the new generations ... they’ve had an emotional reaction and connection to jazz at such young ages. It just blows my mind. It’s fascinating. So after traveling around for a while to different spots, I thought, “I’d like to have my own night.” Maybe if I put together the right collective of young cats and [they] wanna do something kind of sexy and cool. And then the whole La La Land thing ... I thought the timing was unbelievable and serendipitous.

    It’s a passion thing. I’m not making one penny. I’m there because I wanna be there. And I love being maybe able to turn some people on to jazz, to the extent of maybe breaking that stereotype of what they might think it is. Some people think jazz is just hearing Frank Sinatra at the Grove or Arnie Morton’s."

     And with that mind-blowing tidbit, you can watch the two covers Lady Gaga did below: 

    Imagine if Stampede Of The Disco Elephants turned out to be a jazz album...
