This is a song from the Jealous Guys’ project entitled Bus Stop Jazz. It was originally released in 2010, and I loved the song upon hearing it. I’ve always conceptualized a video to this song with a montage of MUNI busses (San Francisco’s public transportation system), and since The Jealous Guys are based in San Francisco, I thought the concept would be fitting.
Another angle is to show the beauty in the simplicity of a usually mundane, arduous, or even anxiety -producing task of taking the bus. I personally have spent many hours on MUNI over the years, and this video is reflective of the many moods, personalities, and scenes that a city bus trip offers.
