English musician and singer Bryan Ferry is best known for his unique vocal style and being part of one of the biggest art rock bands in the 1970s, Roxy Music. If you are of that generation and especially if you are from England, a Roxy Music record is bound to be in your collection.
Although the 14 albums he recorded throughout his career (not including the ones he did with Roxy Music) belong to genres such as pop rock, glam rock, and New Wave, his latest offering The Jazz Age, a rerecording of some of Ferry’s compositions played in the jazz style of the 1920s, will be the album he will be performing in this concert.
Released in November 2012, the album features some of Ferry and Roxy Music’s most well-known tracks such as ‘Love is the Drug’, ‘Slave to Love’, and ‘Don’t Stop the Dance’ reinterpreted in the jazz style. He says of the album, ‘I’ve sort of gone back to the music that I liked listening to when I was a young lad, nine or ten years old - I was really fairly precocious for that time.’
