Watch: The James L’Estraunge Orchestra – See You Tonight (Official Video)
Feast your eyes (and ears) on the stunning video for The James L’Estraunge Orchestra‘s mesmerising new single, See You Tonight.
The second single taken from The James L’Estraunge Orchestra’s dazzling debut album ‘Eventual Reality’, ‘See You Tonight’ is a sensitive and introspective jazz ballad. Lush orchestral arrangements, mournful muted horns and acoustic guitars underpin a heartfelt vocal performance by artist Ricky Reid. The song’s disarmingly honest lyrics explore a junction between past and present, reconciling both in a moving tribute to those special people who help us choose a better path in life. Enjoying early support from Craig Charles, Gilles Peterson and a host of other tastemakers, The James L’Estraunge Orchestra is a shadowy band pieced together from a series of late night studio sessions by multi-instrumentalist Ricky Reid. One half of Soul Renegades as well as supplying keys and vocals for 6th Borough Project, Ricky has long been a stalwart of Scotland’s dance and jazz music scenes. Composed and recorded in Ricky’s remote cabin in the Scottish wilderness, album ‘Eventual Reality’ is the product of a prodigiously talented artist allowing himself the time and space to explore the full expanse of his imagination.
