Down for the Count Orchestra

The 30-piece Down for the Count Swing Orchestra and vocalists present a ‘sonic ride back to the sounds of Capitol Studios in the 1950s’ (DownBeat) as they perform timeless songs from the Golden Age of Swing music.

Expect to hear the music of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Nat ‘King’ Cole, Peggy Lee and many more brought back to life by some of the UK’s top jazz musicians and arrangers.

The Orchestra preserves and protects the musical heritage of these great artists – but this is no mere nostalgia trip, as Down for the Count performs each song in its own unmistakable style, breathing new life into the best vintage music.

You’ll hear recreations of hits such as ‘Come Rain or Come Shine’ (Arlen & Mercer / Judy Garland), ‘You Make Me Feel So Young’ (Myrow & Gordon / Frank Sinatra), ‘All The Things You Are’ (Kern & Hammerstein / Ella Fitzgerald) alongside original arrangements of jazz standards written by the orchestra’s principal conductor Mike Paul-Smith.

‘Awesome!!!’ (Michael Bublé)

‘A sonic ride back to the sounds of Capitol Studios in the 1950s’ (DownBeat)
