They’re getting jazzy in Bedrock as Mike Metheny and his Soundtrek Big Band swing through the theme of the classic cartoon The Flintstones, with Metheny improvising on the well-known melody on muted cornet. An unexpected take on the tune that’s a lot of fun – and just try to keep yourself from shouting, “Yabba dabba doo” when it’s over.
