From his earliest recordings with his group Roxy Music, at the beginning of the 1970s, Bryan Ferry has taken his place as one of the most iconic and innovative singers and lyricists to emerge in popular music. As an artist and musician, Bryan Ferry possesses the rare distinction of being regarded as both classic and timelessly contemporary – an accomplishment achieved by both his recordings with Roxy Music and the range and intensity of his solo albums.

If there was ever a musical icon and a decade destined to come together it is Bryan Ferry and the Roaring Twenties. The artist as creative powerhouse, with a dazzling career of endless surprise, delight and innovation, and the decade - a time of decadence and modernity and bright young things - all driven on by the thrill of it all.
 
So to celebrate and mark the 40th year anniversary of his incredible career both as a solo artist and as the creator of Roxy Music, Ferry has re-recorded some of his own compositions, performed by The Bryan Ferry Orchestra in the style of the 1920s.
 
Driven by his fascination for that time between the wars known as 'The Jazz Age', Ferry has recorded the songs as instrumentals. “A lot of the music I listen to nowadays is instrumental," he explains "and I wanted my songs to have an alternative life, a life without words”. For the band, he has reunited many of the great British jazz musicians who played on his earlier tribute to the 1930s, the album 'As Time Goes By', including his long-term pianist and musical director Colin Good, with whom Ferry worked closely on these new arrangements.
