all arrangements by Graham Harvey

Swing singer Matthew Ford teams up with a superlative jazz trio to perform great songs from the sixties (mostly!). Songs from the definitive writers of the era, such as Lesley Bricusse, Anthony Newley, Cy Coleman, et al. Phil Robson guests on 3 tracks with some stunning guitar solos.

Throughout 'Something Else' Matthew Ford shows his ability to reduce a song to its barest essentials without ever seeming in the least minimalistic. His intelligent phrasing,
natural ability to swing and all round musical sensibility reminds us that it's not only the words of a song that have meaning but the music as well. Matthew has surrounded himself
with an all star ensemble to join him in this highly rewarding romp through swinging sixties musical hits. Graham Harvey is without doubt a world-class singer's accompanist and his
lyrical musicianship gives Matthew a solid and supportive foundation to sing and swing with clarity and emotional directness. The arrangements are fresh and well crafted, witty and inventive,
exactly what you'd expect from a band of this calibre.
This collection will I'm sure win many new fans for Matthew. He can most definitely count me in!
