Midnight Matinee [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
2013 release from the famed interior designer and socialite. Nicky Haslam had a hunch from an early age that, just below the surface, was a budding cabaret act; a fusion of youthful memories of such great artists as Ethel Merman and Marlene Dietrich and contemporary music just bursting to express itself. So, recently teaming up with distinguished producer David Ogilvy and a stellar cast of celebrity friends, Nicky Haslam has translated his cabaret into a seamless soundtrack that fuses song and spoken word; a soundscape as opulently-textured as his many interior design schemes for the rich and famous! On the album, Nicky sings with Bryan Ferry, Cilla Black, Helena Bonham Carter and Sebastien Leon on songs by the great song-writers of the past; Freidrich Hollaender, Rodgers & Hart, Irving Berlin, Coleman & Leigh.... as well as an exclusive brand-new composition by award-winning Guy Chambers, plus a turn on percussion by the legendary Nick Mason of Pink Floyd.
