JAZZIZ Exclusive: Anthony Strong live big band tracks

Following his 2015 big band album On a Clear Day, British jazz singer-pianist Anthony Strong showcases four live tracks recorded in concert with the Danish Radio Big Band. The stream is available exclusively for streaming on JAZZIZ.com

 

Strong, who is signed to French label Naïve, made his debut at the Los Angeles Hollywood Bowl this summer as part of Playboy Jazz and has built a reputation at some of Europe’s biggest festivals for his swinging, feel-good live shows.

 

More than twenty musicians were involved in the making of his 2015 album On A Clear Day, which was a statement in which Strong showed his intent to continue playing a repertoire of unashamedly ‘old school’ material – from jazz standards and classics through to early Stevie Wonder and Motown – in a modern, fresh and energetic way.

 

These latest tracks, recorded by Strong with the Danish Radio Big Band in front of a live audience at the Copenhagen Koncerthuset, are the culmination of a 7-date tour through Scandinavia late last year.
