Yellow Cocktail Music

c9c8a1e6ff632122f348ddc2aad02b67Have you ever wondered what happened to the more jazzy (and more true to the Jazz Age) versions of the tunes that bouncing off the roller coaster ride called Baz Luhrman’s The Great Gatsby? They got released as The Great Gatsby Jazz Recordings. Yass!!

Bryan Ferry and his Orchestra redid some of the popular songs on the Original Soundtrack to this great movie. And then they added a few classics by Mr. Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton. That’s what I call sweet music.
