olin Good's life is music. At the age of 11 he became choral scholar at Magdalen College School, Oxford. In the 1980s he studied composition and keyboards at Oxford University and, all the while, he was developing his jazz playing and arranging skills in the clubs of London.

Over the next decade, Colin worked as player, composer and arranger, mixing TV and theatre work with his role as musical director of the 30's-style orchestra Vile Bodies.

A chance meeting with Bryan Ferry came about as a result of Colin's cameo role in Sir Iain McKellen's modern-dress film of Shakespeare's Richard III. The two then started to work on Bryan's long term plan for an album of 30s and 40s standards. The result, 'As Time Goes By', was a critical and commercial triumph that attracted a Grammy nomination in 2001. The two have since collaborated further on Bryan's soon to be released and hugely anticipated solo album.

Colin's contribution to the sound of the current Roxy Music tour is fundamental. Whether it is the on the grand piano or on the elderly patched up Farfisa organ, his playing is a succinct and poignant counter-point to Bryan's vocals and the Mackay/Manzanera instrumental axis. And his rhapsodic introduction to the epic 'Song for Europe' has held audiences spell-bound throughout the tour.
