The London-based Acoustic Ladyland formed in 2001 and released Camouflage in 2004, a primarily acoustic collection of jazz reworkings of Jimi Hendrix covers. Led by vocalist/saxophonist/arranger Pete Wareham (Polar Bear), the band eventually strayed from the classic rock trappings of its moniker with the following year's Last Chance Disco, a collection of originals that found the group breaking free from the more traditional aspects of the genre, resulting in a BBC Jazz Award for Best Band of 2005. Skinny Grin arrived on V2 Records in late 2006, followed by Living with a Tiger in 2009. ~ James Christopher MongerPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
