What is it about jazz musicians and Radiohead? Though hardly Cole Porter, their tunes are becoming jazz standards.

This 42-piece north Netherlands' "light" orchestra's treatment of 10 songs (from "Paranoid Android" to "Creep", with arrangements by various hands) is endearingly to the point, offering an atmospheric, almost lounge or film-music approach. Dunno if it works as a symphony, but it's great background music.
