Seth McFarlane Is Recording a Big-Band Album


The Family Guy creator revealed to Jay Leno Thursday night that he is working on a big-band album for Universal Republic Records. "I had an offer to do an actual big band album and I took it," he exclaimed, "I said yes.” McFarlane, who said the disc will include “swing arrangements of classic tunes," was eager to show off his chops, jumping out of his chair to sing a brief rendition of “Cream in My Coffee" with Leno's band. While the announcement may seem surprising, McFarlane has actually done his share of performing in the past, singing publicly as recently as August 2009 when he joined the BBC Proms with John Wilson and his orchestra.
