5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Idea, Superbly Carried Out, 2 Dec. 2012
This review is from: The Jazz Age (Audio CD)
Who else but Bryan Ferry would have hit on the idea of re-arranging a selection of his own songs in the style of the 1920s? And who else but Bryan Ferry would have done it with such panache and such a wealth of different styles and musical textures? Ferry is renowned for his perfectionism and obsessive attention to detail, so it's no surprise that he has put this project in the capable hands of Colin Good as arranger and a selection of hand-picked jazz musicians who really know their stuff. And yet you don't have to be a jazz freak to appreciate this album, all you need is an ear for truly original and exciting music. I was so captivated that I didn't even miss Bryan's voice, which is saying something. His aim, as he has said in interviews, was to breathe new life into his music, and in this he has been spectacularly successful. If you hunger for something different, buy this record! You won't regret it.
