The second single taken from The James L’Estraunge Orchestra’s dazzling debut album ‘Eventual Reality’, ‘See You Tonight’ is a sensitive and introspective jazz ballad. Lush orchestral arrangements, mournful muted horns and acoustic guitars underpin a heartfelt vocal performance by artist Ricky Reid. The song’s disarmingly honest lyrics explore a junction between past and present, reconciling both in a moving tribute to those special people who help us choose a better path in life.
Enjoying early support from Craig Charles, Gilles Peterson and a host of other tastemakers, The James L’Estraunge Orchestra is a shadowy band pieced together from a series of late night studio sessions by multi-instrumentalist Ricky Reid. One half of Soul Renegades as well as supplying keys and vocals for 6th Borough Project, Ricky has long been a stalwart of Scotland’s dance and jazz music scenes. Composed and recorded in Ricky’s remote cabin in the Scottish wilderness, album ‘Eventual Reality’ is the product of a prodigiously talented artist allowing himself the time and space to explore the full expanse of his imagination.
