Press Release :
Here we present 4 tracks from The Cinematic Orchestra's sold out Barbican show on 6th May 2007, part of a tour to promote the album Ma Fleur. This release will be available to download from all major download stores on 6th August 2007. The album reached No.33 in the UK album charts (including limited edition sales) on week of release. Scintillating as the Cinematic Orchestra’s recordings have always been, it’s their ability to transform their material in the live arena which has made them stand out. They have stunned audiences from the Jazz Café to the Shepherds Bush Empire via Ronnie Scott's and The Barbican. In somewhat hardcore fashion they toured the North American Jazz Festival circuit in the back of a transit van, with the dates culminating in a prestigious support slot for John McLaughlin in Central Park. They have clocked up the music festival mileage appearing at, amongst others, Homelands and Essential (UK), Sonar (Spain), Celerico De Basto (Portugal), North Sea Jazz and Drum Rhythm (Holland), Cannes (France), Fuji Rock (Japan) and Montreux (Switzerland) and have headlined The Big Chill twice. They have soundtracked "Man With A Movie Camera" in concert venues all over the world. They even played at the presentation of a Lifetime Achievement Award for Stanley Kubrick by the Directors Guild.

The core of the Cinematic Orchestra's live show is Jason Swinscoe (Band Leader) Phil France (Double Bass), Tom Chant (Saxophone) and Luke Flowers (Drums). Joining them in 2007 will be new members Nick Ramm - a pianist from London who has played with Matthew Herbert amongst many others - and Stuart McCallum, a guitarist from Manchester, whose subtle, six string antics have broadly changed the dynamics of TCO's sound on their new record. The showsl also featured vocals from Patrick Watson (whose voice on "To Build A Home" provides a spine-tingling album highlight) and special guest Eska Mtungwazi, probably best known for her work with Ty, but a musician and singer of the highest calibre in her own right. In addition a string quartet joined the band on certain songs. These were a series of nights to remember, a true musical experience!
