The Swingle Singers
Weather to Fly
Weather To Fly is the Swingle Singers' first full-length album since 2009 and the first of two discs to be released in the group's fiftieth anniversary year. A punchy, electrifying set that holds all the excitement of a live show, Weather To Fly celebrates the best of the groupâ€™s current a cappella repertoire. All-vocal arrangements of songs from Turkey, Spain, Italy and Argentina sit alongside re-imagined British pop from Elbow, Florence and the Machine and The Beatles. â€œThis is, quite simply, the album our audiences have asked for after every performance,â€ says bass singer Edward Randell. For half a century, The Swingle Singers have pushed the boundaries of what the human voice can achieve. Their vocal agility and blend, combined with captivating showmanship, have thrilled audiences across the globe. Celebrating their 50th anniversary in the 2013-14 season, todayâ€™s young and gifted Swingle Singers represent the groupâ€™s evolution from baroque jazz pioneers to contemporary a cappella phenomenon.
