Colin Towns & The NDR Bigband
John Lennon - In My Own Write (PVC1041)
UK Release Date: TBC
To celebrate this man, his music and ideals the English composer/arranger Colin Towns has arranged Lennon’s music for the celebrated NDR Bigband in Hamburg. The sweep of musical ideas are wide, from Revolution to Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds/I Want You (She’s So Heavy) through Woman to Tomorrow Never Knows, the musical journey is ‘now’ and fresh. As with Towns’ previous CD releases showcasing his arranging skills, he creates a world that would not normally be considered for a big band. He has his own individual approach to other composers’ work whilst writing for specific musicians and taking the audience somewhere new and special.
