For the first time in four years, Alfie Boe returns to the solo spotlight with the release of his vibrant and instantly classic album As Time Goes By. As Time Goes By boasts Alfie’s voice at its strongest, alongside a full band led by Grammy award winner Gordon Goodwin and his Big Phat Band. It journeys through the defining songs of the era – from the full force of “Sing Sing Sing”- a song strongly identified with big band and swing, through to slower, smoother numbers “The Way You Look Tonight” and “As Time Goes By”
This record goes deeper for Alfie – it is the music that was part of the soundtrack to Alfie’s childhood in Lancashire. In a way, the new project is homage to his parents, who – along with their passion for tenors and sopranos – introduced him to the glories of big bands and classics by Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra.
