Since 2014, The Bowie Project has captured jazz and Bowie fans alike with its dynamic and vibrant instrumental interpretations of the compositions of one of popular culture’s most iconic figures. Pianist, composer and broadcaster Adam Rudegeair (PBS 106.7fm Black Wax) deconstructs and re-imagines selections from David Bowie’s five-decade back catalogue – from deep cuts to hits. With humble beginnings as an acoustic jazz quartet, the sound and line-up of The Bowie Project continues to evolve with each album and performance.

Strange Changes is the fourth release from The Bowie Project and is infused with the flavours of New Orleans brass bands, as well as Headhunters era Herbie Hancock.
