Fly Me To The Moon by Frank Sinatra!

Last month I heard Frank Sinatra‘s song Fly Me To The Moon during an elevator ride to the viewing platform of Rotterdam’s Euromast. What a funny choice of a song! I wish you a good start into the fresh week with those mood-lifting and jazzy tunes!

Happy listening!

And do you know Angelina Jordan’s interpretation of the song? It’s amazing!

A Song For Tuesday: Bus In These Streets by Thundercat!

Today’s song Bus In These Streets by the American musician Thundercat simply convinced me with its distinct vibe and groove. It’s hard to find a genre for Thundercat’s sound – for me it’s located somewhere between funk and soul. I am pretty sure, that we will hear a lot more from this exceptional artist in the near future!

Have fun listening!

Dining with Friends – The Background Sound!

While dining with friends, one ingredient that always helps to support an animated atmosphere is a good background soundtrack. What’s the first kind of music that comes into your mind when you think about ‘dinner music’? For me that’s clearly jazz. The calmer version of it. It’s not too dominating but inspires your mood. Those are three jazz gems I would choose for such an occasion:

Ella Fitzgerald – Summertime (1968)

Tingvall Trio – Grrr (Norr 2008)

Esbjörn Svensson Trio – From Gagarin’s Point Of View

Thanks Annika for your jazz tips!

Madeleine Peyroux

I woke up quite sick this morning :(. Thus, to save my remaining power today only a short and uncomplicated post… Madeleine Peyroux is an US chanson-jazz singer, who was recommended to me by a friend a month ago while we shared together a good bottle of wine. Great tip!

Shake your legs, I can hear 20s tunes!

Josephine Baker dancing the Charleston in 1926

Music of the 1920s always remembers me of two things: Extremely wild dancing (in one word: Charleston) and the tunes of black and white movies (Have you already seen The Artist? …Again, a point on my to-do list.).

International seen, it was the decade of Jazz music including such famous performers like  Louis Armstrong or Duke Ellington and also the blues became famous with Bessie Smith and Ma Rainey. These developments can also be heard in German music classics of 1920s. Here especially one star began to rise – Marlene!

So, have fun listening and dancing to the roaring twenties!
