Ben Crosland Quintet plays the Ray Davies Songbook

Ben Crosland’s interpretation of Davies’ idiosyncratic songs are full of delightful surprises. The tunes have “strong grooves, natural swing and evocative melodies” and Crosland’s affectionate, sophisticated arrangements explore them in a range of jazz styles from modal to Latin, bop to blues. They also provide fine frameworks for the all-star soloists.
