DON’T LET YOUR ANGELS GO
After a five year break the songwriting duo Jazzamor publishes a new album. Seven new songs, two cover versions and four newly mastered songs from recent EPs.
Don’t let your angels go is a diverse mix of arrangements with Bettina’s voice sometimes pure sometimes distorted like in a radio jazz-show from the thirties. The piano arrangements complete the song in a typical jazzamoric way. Structured all by drum sounds both straight electronic or mixed with typical jazz drums from the past. All songs presented in down-to-earth compositions with a tribute to the musical beginnings of Jazzamor while at the same time outlined in contemporary twenty twenty-two style.
„Is it right or is it wrong“, a journey into the thirties. „From the edge of time“, a bow to the jazzy scat singing of the fifties and Jazzamor’s love for the Bossa Nova of the sixties. „For a while“, arranged with typical Brazilian samba ukulele sounds. „Aqua de beber“, a compliment to one of Jazzamor’s favourite songs from the sixties. In the beginning of Bettina’s and Roland’s musical journey this song was the most performed live-song. Now it comes in a more modern arrangement, slower and in a relaxed and laid-back mood. The title song, „Don’t let your angels go“, is inspired by a Rilke poem from The Duino Elegies. We ask what the meaning is of his words in present times. How do we read them today? Do we live our dreams – or are we dreaming our lives away in fake realities starving our dream angels to death? While we need our angels alive and well. They are creativity and future. Isn’t it that at last I am nothing without you my angel?! We are in it together and we are nothing without the freedom of the other.
