The “Let’s Go Cruising” E.P. was recorded at Studio4 Southampton in December of 2011. Ed Hailwood’s remit to Lou Stonehill the studio owner and producer was to pull out the stops and come up with a top class recording using only the very best A List of UK musicians. The primary aim was to come up with a recording they could all be proud of that could stand side by side with any previous big band recording..

Ed Hailwood may be a new name to many but Ed is here to stay. His delivery , tone, phrasing and musicality is second to none. He would be at home on any concert stage delivering his own unique style of a standard blending the best of Frank Sinatra , Tony Bennett and those other classic singers.
 
The crew of musicians was like a who’s who of UK players who’s collective C.V. would take far too long to list here.
 
“Let’s Go Cruisin” one of many of his self penned numbers condenses all the excitement of a Mediteranean cruise with a taste of the glamorous evening out included.
 
Like Ed said, “It was an immense privilege to be involved with artists of this calibre. From the initial get together sorting out the outline of the project, to listening to Simon Niblock’s pre recording arrangement.”
