The Bryan Ferry Orchestra is a jazz ensemble founded and led by Bryan Ferry. They exclusively play his work in a 1920s jazz style. Ferry formed the orchestra out of a desire to focus on the melodies of his songs, and "see how they would stand up without singing". Ferry neither plays nor sings with the orchestra. The album, The Jazz Age, was released on 26 November 2012 as a 10" vinyl, 12" vinyl, on CD and as a digital download on BMG Rights Management. The album is co-produced by Ferry and Rhett Davies, with arrangements by Colin Good. The artwork for The Jazz Age album consists of illustrations by the renowned French poster artist Paul Colin (1892–1985).
