The album comprises mostly songs and instrumentals from the band’s 2018 theatre Roadshow “Something in the air………”. The numbers covered have been selected, as has the running order, on the same basis as Spatz produce their Set Lists for live performances, namely to constantly hop from one music genre to another, to continually vary the rhythm, tempo and mood, and to feature each member of the band as a soloist at some point in proceedings.
Spatz and Co Showband is a uniquely formed group of 8 professional musicians, all band leaders, all accomplished solo performers, all multi-instrumentalists, and all specialists in one music genre or another. They only come together for stage and theatre performances and have been touring themed shows in theatres throughout Scotland since 2016. During a stage performance they move from Big Band to Rhythm & Blues, from Jazz to Pop, from Soul to American Songbook, from Folk to Latin and even Classical references. Such a range of musical style demands a high level of musicianship that their growing reputation and popularity speaks volumes for.
