Danny Bryant has released a live video showcasing his song Temperature Rising.

It’ll feature on his upcoming double live album titled Big: Live In Europe which will launch next month. It was recorded across three of his shows in Germany and Holland in January this year.

The tour saw Bryant play with a nine-piece big band, featuring keyboards, rhythm guitar and a full four-piece horn section.

Bryant says: “This is something I have always wanted to do. We are mixing the new with the old – modernised and re-presented versions of my own work in a classic ‘big band’ format, with a couple of blues classics alongside. I’m thrilled with the result.”

Big features 11 re-workings of Bryant’s own tracks, along with covers of Otis Rush’s Groaning The Blues and Robert Johnson’s Stop Breaking Down.

Bryant has lined up three launch shows for the album, with dates and details available below.
