Johannesburg Big Band and Jonathan Roxmouth record Christmas album - 'Swingle Bells!' - at Howard Audio

Jonathan Roxmouth recently recorded two albums at the Howard Audio studios. 'Phantasm' was Jonathan with a full symphony orchestra performing the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, and the other a Christmas album with the 17-piece Johannesburg Big Band.
A joint venture between Jonathan Roxmouth and the Johannesburg Big Band - this is a collection of the most famous Christmas songs we all know and love - all arranged by Jonathan for the full-piece 17-piece big band formed eight years ago by musical director - Adam Howard. Howard explains, “We had four sold-out concerts lined up in December at the Montecasino Teatro - all cancelled due to the pandemic that continues to devastate our entertainment industry... but that didn’t stop me or Jonathan! Seeing he was recording his 'Phantasm' album in October anyway - we decided to record the concert!”

So go on - download the album ready for Christmas morning! Howard concludes, “I don’t know about you but I cannot cook a turkey on Xmas morning without a good dose of big band playing!” Wise words indeed!

The Johannesburg Big Band has many more things planned for this project next year - but for now you can support the big band and the arts and add something special to your music collection as you hear Jonathan as you’ve never heard him before!
