Symphonia Phonotone Dance Orchestra dazzle with excellent musicianship on new album
(Published: January 28, 2020)

Symphonia Phonotone Dance Orchestra & Phonotone Quartet have released a new studio album titled Hello Beautiful. If you consider the sheer amount of talent, musicianship, vision, and dedication that went into this project, it is quite unbelievable. In fact, it is hard to put into words. The best thing you can do is to hit that play button, and let the music tell you the rest of the story. The album immediately hits the mark with all the right feels with the opening track, "Hello, Beautiful." This song does an outstanding job at portraying the excellent sound and feel that you can expect from this release, and it sets the underlying mood for the rest of the tracks. The track has a classic sound, tipping the hat off to those big bands of the late 1920s and 1930s. However, eclectic creativity is the key here, so you can definitely hear something quite different for every song on this release. On "Mad About The Boy", for example, these talented musicians explored influences like old-time jazz and even subtle shades of tango with a New York flair.

"Black and Blue" has a timeless jazz sound with a catchy and uplifting piano melody, as well as a warm and expressive saxophone lead. The melodies are beautifully vocal and expressive, allowing the song to stand out as one of the highlights on this record in my opinion. "Thanks" is a track that could easily be featured as the credits roll in one of this iconic Woody Allen films. The production is incredibly organic, and the ensemble melodies will warm up your heart with a song that feels nostalgic, yet so alive and memorable. Fans of seminal artists like Bunny Berigan are definitely going to enjoy the sound and feel of this melody. These are only some of my favorite tracks on this recording, but this album is a joy to discover in every way.

At the end of the day, Hello Beautiful stands out as an excellent studio effort from these musicians, because it is so refreshingly diverse and one-of-a-kind, particularly in terms of production.
