'The Jazz Age' is an intoxicating collection of timeless songs awakening the spirits of Louis Armstrong's Hot Seven, Bix Beiderbecke's Wolverines and the Original Dixieland Jazz Band.

From the thundering cascade of 'Virginia Plain' to the timeless weave of 'Slave To Love', 'Avalon' and 'Reason or Rhyme' ' no shade from Ferry's palette of musical styles is omitted.

'The Bogus Man', which made its debut on 1973's For Your Pleasure, revives the heady sounds of Duke Ellington's Cotton Club band, while the arrangement of 'Don't Stop the Dance' might have come from the pen of the great Don Redman.

Ferry has created a soundtrack for those endless champagne-fuelled parties documented by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and for a whole new generation -'The Jazz Age' is pure Gatsbyesque bliss.
