Pop Crooner Bryan Ferry Records Instrumental Jazz Album
Roxy Music frontman remakes his hits ’20s style on 'The Jazz Age'
Bryan Ferry, the English pop/rock vocalist best known as the former frontman of the band Roxy Music, has released The Jazz Age, a new album on which he remakes several of his best-known hits in a style reminiscent of 1920s jazz. Ferry does not sing on the album. Working with a group of musicians he’s dubbed the Bryan Ferry Orchestra, Ferry—known for his chic style—has reworked such familiar Roxy tunes as “Love Is The Drug,” “Don’t Stop the Dance,” “Do the Strand,” “Avalon” and “Virginia Plain.” The album was recorded in London using vintage microphones. It is currently available only as a U.K. import or digital download.
