If You Were A Jazz Tune Running For President, What Would You Sound Like?

Presidential campaigns may inspire people to vote, but they rarely inspire people to compose music. Jazz pianist Marcus Roberts takes up the challenge on a new EP called Race for the White House, which explores the personas of four different candidates from this year’s election cycle.

One of those candidates is Donald Trump; you can hear the song Roberts wrote to represent him below. It features a whistle, which he says is meant to express a particular vision of Trump.

“That symbolizes Donald just looking over his vast estate and just chilling and just having a great time,” Roberts says. “And then the trumpet interrupts him just to make a bold statement of, ‘I’m going to make America great again, all by myself.'”
