Album Review – Anthony Strong – On a Clear Day

80

Jazz Artist from the UK… Interested Read on….

Anthony Strong was hailed as “England’s new jazz superstar” in 2008.His voice clearly shows that hail wass correct. It took him a while to breakout but once he did there was no stopping him.

His breakout moment was the 2010 jazz festival where he supported American trumpet star Chris Botti. Added to the backing of BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio London and Jazz FM he got to that breakout point and then developed it into a long career. He got noticed by International Labels and eventually got signed by Naïve. (Naïve also have on their books Adele, Carla Bruni and Katie Melua.)

Now in 2015, he continues to develop that worldwide fanbase which has seen him hit big venue tours across 26 countries on 4 continents. 

“Armed with his sharply tailored suit, a cracking album and an easy charm, 2015 is set to be the busiest yet.”

About the Album

This album took two years to bring together and is a “statement of intent” of what he continues doing best. He is a fan of the “old school” jazz and swing and it shows – but still expect it to be spun differently.
Anthony has took on the arrangement, composing, band leading, orchestration and the producing duties himself. It brings a fresh, positive and good energy to the sound – which means his tours are terrific.

Mid 2013 he began building it and the depth in the sound shows. Big band numbers this time focusing more on a big horn section.

“Anthony drafted in over twenty musicians – a wealth of UK-based talent – to help fulfil his vision, including Seb De Krom (Jamie Cullum), Nigel Hitchcock (Ray Charles), Gareth Lockrane (Michael Kiwanuka) and a horn section featuring some of London’s top session players.”

 

Album Out for Release on the 18th May

Our Thoughts

Great Album. It has a good feel across the board with good energy throughout the songs.  Good balance of songs with his all round skills in developing shown.  He clearly have fun with his musical friends making the album and you hear that energy in his voice.  It does get you dancing too – in the right places.

 

Highlight Songs

When It Moves You – Loved the crescendos of tones. Up and down at the right times to emphasize the meanful lyrics.

Whatever Lola Wants – Classic song. Good song as always.

Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough – Another great classic.
