News Helpline | May, 15 2014

Mumbai 14th May’2014, Saregama India Ltd, India’s flagship music company  proudly launches the album "Classic Bollywood with a Twist" by The Bartender  at  Blue Frog. The album was launched by actor Ranveer Singh. Also present at the launch were Kalki Koechlin and  music composer Salim Merchant of  the  Salim Sulaiman Duo.The launch was followed by an enthralling performance by the   band’s enchanting  singers,  Anushka Manchanda, Shalmali Kholgade and Saba Azad.
'Classic Bollywood with a twist' is the latest album from The Bartender. Mikey McCleary has chosen some of the most loved songs from the 50s, 60s and 70s and reinterprets them with jazzy, seductive and mischievous flare using various genres and a predominantly live band feel. Says Mikey McCleary, 'A beautiful song is like a beautiful woman. The musical arrangements are like the clothes that she wears. The music recordings, much like clothes, may appear old and outdated to the younger generation, but the beauty of the song composition and lyrics are eternal. My goal is to give that beautiful song new clothes that suit and enhance her beauty for all to see afresh and enjoy. I personally also still love listening to the old recordings.'
The concept of the remix has often damaged old songs. These are not remixes. It's like Mikey has imagined what the old music arrangers would have done with the music back then if they had today's technology at their finger tips. Says Adarsh Gupta,  Business Head - Music -Saregama, “It gives us great pleasure to be associated with Mikey McCleary’s band The Bartender. He is known for his rare capacity to combine innovation with tradition.  His music has a massive following and his charm continues in this album”.
