Corinne Drewery from Swing Out Sister has been in touch to tell SDE about the band’s forthcoming compilation The Essential Swing Out Sister. This is what she had to say:
“This album is mainly for those who missed SOS the first time around…
The big band version of “Forever Blue” is a sample of one of our ongoing projects – big band arrangements of our songs which Andy worked on with long time collaborator Noel Langley, who has accompanied us on trumpet and flugelhorn on many tours, he also features on several studio recordings. We recorded it after performing at The Java Jazz Festival at which we had the pleasure of sharing the same stage as Stevie Wonder.
Other projects are currently in the mix – an album somewhere between big band arrangements, cinematic scores and samplings of the imagination….time will decide!”
The band are currently on tour in Japan and their latest recording project, dubbed A Moveable Feast is available to be ‘pledged’ on via PledgeMusic.
The Essential Swing Out Sister is released on 6 October 2014.
