The aptly-named Cinematic Orchestra (TCO) were formed by J. Swinscoe back in 1999. The debut album Motion took everyone by surprise and was voted best album of the year on Gilles Peterson's Radio One Show, with Uncut likening it to "every hard-boiled, neon-lit Hollywood thriller you’ve seen, the sound of a thousand femmes fatales, doomed P.I.’s and bitter plot twists remixed and refashioned in one ingeniously sampled audio narrative". Their second album Every Day, brought out more of the orchestral side, too. Arguably a more refined record than its predecessor, it is uncompromising in its approach nonetheless. The British jazz and electronic outfit then followed in 2007 with Ma Fleur featuring vocals of Canadian singer-songwriter Patrick Watson and In Motion released in Japan only this year, amongst many other singles.
Over the years, the membership of Cinematic Orchestra has gradually evolved. Alongside core members Swinscoe and Phil France is Tom Chant, a fixture at left of centre jazz gigs all over the world, saxophonist Chant is known as one of the UK’s top free jazz players. For Every Day young drumming legend Luke Flowers was recruited. New members for the current incarnation of TCO are Nick Ramm - a pianist from London who has played with Matthew Herbert amongst many others – and Stuart McCallum, a guitarist from Manchester, whose subtle, six string antics have slightly changed the dynamics of TCO’s sound on their new record.
