„Although this is already our third album, recording it felt like something really fresh.“ The Hi-Fly Orchestra are excited when they talk about their new long-player „Get Ready“. They have all rights to do so, with 12 original tracks covering a wide range from funk, brazil, soul and jazz, always in view of the groove: „We are no scientists, we are not on a mission. We are here to make you dance.“
Florian Riedl, one of the two main songwriters in the Hi-Fly Orchestra, has a story to tell about „Get Ready“: „We have always been a real band, right from the start in 2005. We love vintage recording techniques, all our gear crammed in one room and getting the music on tape in a jam session situation.“ The opening chords of „Uncle Green“ already prove the point. “Get Ready” is a journey in style. Think of Lonnie Smith’s immediacy and rhythmic urgency circa „Move Your Hands“, the casual spirituality of Horace Silver with a hint of Lee Dorsey’s style of turning rhythm & blues into soul, even Vince Guaraldi’s versatile, comforting jazz sound is somewhere in “Get Ready”. „’Get Ready’ is all about the music we love. Take the title track, for example“, Jerker Kluge, second half in Hi-Fly’s songwriting team, says. „It has that certain New Orleans feeling. The band is going loose on the rhythm, while Karl Frierson’s lyrics have a conscious, social dimension to them.“
With “Get Ready” the Hi-Fly Orchestra is coming home. They know what they do, where they come from and where they want to go. “So please don’t think of us a pseudo-hip, young newcomer jazz band,” Florian Riedl asks, “we are here to stay.” Don’t worry guys, with “Get Ready” the Hi-Fly Orchestra will not be misunderstood. Please meet a bunch of real musicians from the real world, spreading a real message …
