About the album

Around the time The King’s Singers was starting up, one of the most productive periods of songwriting in history was coming to a close in America, starting with composers such as Gershwin, Kern, Berlin and Porter in the early 1920s, and continuing through to the early 1960s. // In this new 2-CD studio recording—featuring brand new a cappella arrangements by jazz composer and arranger Alexander L’Estrange, and swing-orchestra performances with the South Jutland Symphony Orchestra—The King’s Singers bring their own unique performance style to this wonderful music.
Unieke uitvoeringen van liederen uit het Amerikaanse gouden tijdperk
Rond de periode waarin The King’s Singers opstartte, werd in Amerika een van de meest productieve periodes in de geschiedenis van het populaire lied. Deze periode begon in de vroege jaren '20 met componisten als Gershwin, Kern, Berlin en Porter, en liep door tot aan de vroege jaren '60.

Op dit dubbelalbum van studio-opnames passen The King’s Singers hun unieke stijl van uitvoeren toe op deze muziek. Het bevat onder andere gloednieuwe a capellabewerkingen van jazzcomponist en arrangeur Alexander L’Estrange, en swingorkest-uitvoeringen met het South Jutland Symphony Orchestra.

The Lady schreef over dit album: “This two-disc release comprises a cappella plus orchestral accompaniment from the South Jutland Symphony Orchestra. The King’s Singers bring their unique style to some of the most beloved hits from the golden era of songwriting, including a witty take on cole Porter’s Let’s Misbehave.”
