Retro Swing & French Swing in modern minimalist arrangements with the smoothest crooning voice of South Africa.
Ike Moriz is starting 2011 with a bang! Only 3 short months after the release of his previous album, “South Africa’s Tony Bennett” (Full Circle) is bringing out a brand new 15 track swing album, his 10th studio album to date. It features South African guitarist Morne Van Der Merwe, Navy big band leader Willie Van Zyl on clarinet & saxophone as well as A. McPike on keys & responsible for arrangements.
The fresh new CD has a distinctive minimalist feel to it, thriving on Ike’s shining, full-bodied, smooth and diverse vocals. It contains many classic hits from the swing genre, including 4 songs with French lyrics: La Mer, Les Feuilles Mortes, Hymn A L’Amour and the title track C’est Si Bon.
A sound feast from the southern most point of Africa worthy of exploration!
