The Bryan Ferry Orchestra

The fact that 1920's jazz age music is the only music Bryan Ferry listens to now is clear on Bryan Ferry Orchestra's critically acclaimed album The Jazz Age. The album finds Ferry doing a lot of listening
and not much else, since he neither sings nor plays on the record. Instead, the same musician whose band Roxy Music redefined art pop and helped shape the New Romantic scene in the ‘70s and early ‘80s has allowed Colin Good to rearrange his old material, consisting of 13 instrumental versions of songs selected among 11 albums, from Roxy Music (1972) to his latest solo cut Olympia (2010).
Ferry and his Orchestra were also recently named the headliner of the first ever Love Supreme Jazz Festival, which will take place in England on July 6.
In this installment of World Cafe, we hear music from The Jazz Age and Ferry discusses the album with host David Dye.
