Close to You: Sinatra and The Hollywood String Quartet
This classy reinvention of Close to You, one of the great Sinatra recordings, brings together an ensemble of twelve handpicked musicians chosen for their sound and empathy for this extraordinary music. Among them are jazz luminaries Matt Ford, a regular soloist with the John Wilson Orchestra, Grammy-nominated drummer Matt Skelton, Ronnie Scott’s artistic director James Pearson and the renowned Tippett String Quartet.
Alongside celebrating the genius of Sinatra’s performances, the group also pays homage to the artistry of Nelson Riddle, the Hollywood String Quartet and the extraordinary studio musicians who so skilfully brought this music to life. Now, in the year of Sinatra’s centenary, the group are tremendously proud to be bringing these exquisite versions of vintage popular song to audiences for the first time in almost 60 years.
‘Where else would you hear such distinctive, timeless music, tailored with such care yet still sounding so fresh?’
Peter Vacher, London Jazz News
‘It’s musical gold’
