The Bryan Ferry Orchestra - The Jazz Age - Vinyl
Bryan Ferry has always been linked to jazz. The singer built up his lounge lizard persona in the 70s, doffing his cap towards the standards in the process. Now the iconic songwriter has outlined plans for a new album, re-working elements of his own discography in a 1920s jazz style. Leafing through his back catalogue, Bryan Ferry worked with a group of top jazz musicians to craft new instrumental versions. Forming The Bryan Ferry Orchestra, sessions turned some of his most famous pieces on their head. “After forty years of making records, both in and out of Roxy Music, I thought now might be an interesting moment to revisit some of these songs, and approach them as instrumentals in the style of that magical period. I would like to thank Colin Good and the other outstanding musicians featured on this record (most of who played on Ferry's earlier tribute to the 1930s, the album ‘As Time Goes By’) for bringing a new and different life to these songs – a life without words”.
