The Cinematic Orchestra Live At Royal Albert Hall

Few bands realize the full potential–what would happen with no holds barred–of their music like Jason Swinscoe. He first sketched TCO in 1999, (while promoting artists on Ninja Tune) and assembled a few jazz players who were open to his cinema-inspired ideology. Over the last nine years, his band has morphed and evolved numerous times, one iteration being the 40-piece outfit that performed in front of 4,000 people on this beautiful recording. Reinterpreting songs from previous albums–mostly Everyday and Ma Fleur–this is the stuff musical dreams are made of. With the keyboard- and saxophone-driven “Child Song” and the haunting, quiet and acoustic “To Build a Home” leading the charge, Swinscoe’s cinema is worthy of its world renown.
