'Live With Britten Sinfonia' Out May

Jaga Jazzist - 'Live With Britten Sinfonia' Out May

Jaga Jazzist will release Live With Britten Sinfonia on 6 May 2013 - pre-order now on 2LP/CD/DL at the Ninjashop.

Yes, yes, we know what you're thinking. It's a live album, and when are those ever very exciting? But just remember that they really can be, and trust us when we say that this one really, truly is. Like a modern day Live at LeedsJaga Jazzist's wondrous new record is just that; a brilliant album on its own terms. It's a psychedelic Bond soundtrack twisting and turning from the stage, propelling the listener forward on an epic emotional voyage. 

At times it seems to explode from the speakers in pure, exuberant colour, making you wonder if you've recently developed synesthesia. It moves with unrestrained ease from quiet reflection to cinematic, widescreen thunder, from Sound of Music pastoral joy to pulsing jazz chase sequences… and it makes you wonder why more of the music you hear isn't quite so completely affecting.

Watch a performance of the classic "One-Armed Bandit" below, and pre-order the album now at the Ninjashop.
