Sinatra Big Band & Orchestral Arrangements/ Recordings

Here’s a look at two large, complex projects we’ve completed over the past year:

“That’s Life – The Sinatra Story” is a touring theatre show following the life of Sinatra with 40 Big band and orchestral arrangements with a live band.
What makes this show special is that these arrangements are completely authentic and accurate and are tempo mapped to the original recordings, recreating the correct mood and feel. The live musicians are playing along with additional recorded material that would otherwise be impossible – there’s a complete Big Band, full orchestra with vibraphone, celeste, clavichord, fender Rhodes, alto flutes……and every instrument used in the original recordings.

iTunes No1 Classical Album

For our second project we were asked to provide arrange and record a double album for West End vocalist Tom Solomon. In addition, he wanted backing tracks and click tracks for live performance. Not only did we produce everything on time for Tom, he also reached no 1 in the iTunes classical chart. Read More….

“Beautiful Day” is a classical crossover vocal album featuring 28 tracks, which we transcribed, arranged and recorded for Tom.  We used a combination of virtual instruments along with a session drummer and guitarist, with the addition of backing vocals. We used a technique of tempo mapping to live performances which gives an authentic, musical feel throughout.
