Broadcaster and concert producer Tommy Pearson has revealed via Facebook that he is currently working on a new double CD of John Barry music:

"So proud and excited that a project I've been working on for the last few months with my dear friend Pirmin Zängerle has finally - at the 3rd attempt (thanks to Covid) - started recording!

A new double-CD of music by John Barry, played by the City Light Symphony Orchestra and Anthony Gabriele in the fabulous acoustic of the KKL, Lucerne.

I am co-producing the CD with Pirmin and I edited, digitised and prepared the vast majority of the music with final prep done by the amazing Lillie Harris. Acres of fabulous music, of course, mostly taken from the JB originals plus orchestrations/arrangements via Nick Dodd and Nic Raine. Liner notes will be by Jon Burlingame and there will be a special introduction written by Laurie Barry.

We are also recording some extra James Bond tracks by the 'other' Bond composers, including David Arnold, Marvin Hamlisch, Michael Kamen and John Altman that will be available as download extras.

I'm gutted that I can't actually be at the sessions (because of Covid restrictions, of course). But everything is in the best hands."
