Ray Davies is one of the finest songwriters in popular music history. Waterloo Sunset is a true classic and You Really Got Me sounds as fresh and edgy as the day it was recorded. Sunny Afternoon and Dedicated Follower Of Fashion have a natural swing and the groove of All Day And All Of The Night is irresistible. They are the perfect vehicles for jazz arrangement.
Ben Crosland is an English bass player/composer/arranger/bandleader. He works with the cream of UK jazz musicians. His arrangements of the Ray Davies Songbook have resulted in two critically acclaimed albums.
“the album swings consistently… with this sharp, cogent collection, a dedicated follower of Ray Davies has made him a well-respected jazz composer too.”
“I thought it was very good and well played. Your album is easy to listen to and I like the sound with the tenor and soprano sax. The improvisation is so good. Well done!”
Mick Avory, the Kinks
