Glam jazz?

Bryan Ferry lookin’ sharp

Very interesting new project out from singer and Roxy Music frontman Bryan Ferry. The Jazz Age features some Roxy Music songs along with solo pieces from Ferry reworked as 1920s jazz tunes. If you didn’t know what to listen for you’d never guess that these songs had once been rock and roll–even distinctive songs like “Virginia Plain” and “Avalon” fit seamlessly into the smoky jazz club aesthetic. You can hear the whole album for limited time here at the NPR website.
