How’s this for fusion? Here we have The Sachal Studios Orchestra, based in Lahore, Pakistan, playing an innovative cover of “Take Five,” the jazz standard written by Paul Desmond and originally performed by The Dave Brubeck Quartet in 1959.

Chuck Berry Dies at 90

In ‘Sweet Little Sixteen,’ ‘You Can’t Catch Me’ and other songs, Mr. Berry invented rock as a music of teenage wishes fulfilled and good times (even with cops in pursuit). In ‘Promised Land,’ ‘Too Much Monkey Business’ and ‘Brown Eyed Handsome Man,’ he celebrated and satirized America’s opportunities and class tensions. His rock ’n’ roll was a music of joyful lusts, laughed-off tensions and gleefully shattered icons.
