Ben Folds And yMusic Reinvent “Baroque Pop”

Ben Folds has worn many musical hats; from punk rock piano player to booster of acapella groups. This time out he has combined his piano concerto, recorded with the Nashville Symphony, with a number of songs written in collaboration with yMusic, the New York based chamber ensemble, on his new album So There. It’s not classical and it certainly isn’t rock, so call it baroque pop. Ben’s new album hits the store on Friday.
