SWINGING ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS WITH A BRAND NEW BIG BAND ALBUM!
Updated: Jan 30
The Nick Ross Orchestra celebrate the release of their new album, 'Sounds of the Glenn Miller Era', recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London featuring Singer, Sam Merrick.
Many years before the Beatles stepped onto the world’s most famous zebra crossing, Glenn Miller made his last known recording at London’s Abbey Road Studios on Monday 27 November 1944, just a few short weeks before he “disappeared” on 15 December of that same year. It was especially poignant for the Nick Ross Orchestra to step into those same studios to record their new album almost 75 years later.
The album features UK Jazz & Big Band Singer, Sam Merrick, a graduate of the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, London’s Jazz programme who following in the footsteps of Matt Ford and Georgina Jackson has been touring with the band across the UK for the last six years.
Released 20 November on ‘Montpellier Records’, the album features 17 distinctive tracks echoing the sounds of the magical big band era such as ‘Little Brown Jug’, ‘In the Mood’, the ever nostalgic, ‘Moonlight Serenade’ as well vocal numbers; ‘Easy to Love’, ‘I’ll Be Seeing You’, ‘The Way You Look Tonight’ and ‘The Nearness of You’.
