One of the best-loved and commercially successful jazz groups ever---THE RIPPINGTONS --- celebrate their 25th Anniversary with BUILT TO LAST. Its their biggest, most ambitious album ever.
Rippingtons leader Russ Freeman has challenged himself and his band mates to make an imaginative, hook-filled collection, fronted by the new single Cougars and Gigolos. The mix of music is enticing and sure to please fans and newcomers alike, and includes four bonus alternative versions with full orchestra, adding a further, neo-classical dimension to this career landmark.
From orchestrated, widescreen epics, to lyrical, smooth ballads, and high energy, progressive jazz-rock---for once, the title says it all: The Rippingtons and their music are BUILT TO LAST forever.
