An interesting interpretation,

Although this may not be what one would expect from Bryan Ferry, I really enjoyed this new album. He hasn't necessarily gone for the tracks you would expect, and there's more solo tracks than Roxy ones, but this just adds more interest. The tunes aren't always recognisable at the beginning of the track, and he's drawn out some interesting sub-themes to bring to the fore, but all the tunes become obvious after a while. This album should be of interest to anyone who likes jazz, and also Roxy fans who don't mind the tunes being tinkered around with, especially if by Bryan himself. i'm not a great fan of Dixieland jazz, but I loved this interpretation.
