After taking some time off from music, British musician and songwriter Bryan Ferry (born 26.09.1945) – most known as a founding member of re-reformed Roxy Music and as a solo artist – returned in 1999 to perform a mix of 1930s songs and songs of his own.
As a result, he recorded the album As Time Goes By, which was nominated for a Grammy award.
Ferry has the ability to cover standards in a way, you could think these are his own songs. His whispering and breathing way of singing reinforces this feeling.
My favourite song of the album is Lover Come Back To Me.
The recording has a nice live feeling and the band is beautifully swinging. Light and easy. Great for Balboa dancing.
Title: Lover Come Back To Me
