about

LAST OF SONGS – BY IRIT DEKEL & ELDAD ZITRIN OFFER A UNIQUE AND ENCHANTING COLLAGE OF JAZZ, CONTEMPORARY FOLK AND TRADITIONAL VOCAL POP MANAGING TO WEAVE ARRANGEMENTS THAT RECALL GRANDIOSE EARLY 20TH CENTURY COMPOSITIONS WITH MODERN RECORDING TECHNIQUES. THEIR DEBUT SELF-TITLED LP IS THE KIND OF ALBUM THAT IS FILLED TO THE BRIM WITH ELEGANT MELODIES THAT REMAIN WITH YOU LONG AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN HEARD. IMAGINE SEMINAL JAZZ LEGEND BILLIE HOLIDAY JAMMING WITH FRENCH MAESTROS AIR.

IT WASN’T THAT LONG AGO THAT SINGER/ACTRESS IRITDEKEL WAS SEEKING OUT AN IDEAL COLLABORATOR WHO SHE COULD TRULY TRUST WITH THE LEFTFIELD COMPOSITIONS SHE HAD BEEN ASSEMBLING FOR SEVERAL YEARS. ELDAD ZITRIN ON THE OTHER HAND WAS A JAZZ PURIST FOR MUCH OF HIS FORMATIVE YEARS BEFORE SPLINTERING OFF AND IMMERSING HIMSELF IN A VARIETY OF ROCK AND POP PRODUCTION DUTIES AT THE TIME.

WHAT BEGUN AS THE QUINTESSENTIAL ARTIST/PRODUCER RELATIONSHIP SWIFTLY EVOLVED INTO AN UNEXPECTED AND WONDERFUL MUSICAL MARRIAGE BUILT ON AN UNEQUIVOCAL MUTUAL ADMIRATION. THIS COMPLETE FAITH IN EACH OTHER’S ABILITY MEANT ELDADZITRIN HAD TOTAL CREATIVE FREEDOM IN HIS PROCESS AND WAS ABLE TO INJECT THOSE SAME HARMONIES THAT HAD ONCE BEEN SUCH A BIG PART OF HIS LIFE INTO THESE NEW COMPOSITIONS.

EVER A CONSUMMATE PROFESSIONAL, IT WASN’T LONG BEFORE THEY WERE BOTH EQUALLY INVESTED IN THE PROJECT AND THIS PERSONAL AND DEEPLY SPIRITUAL MATERIAL WAS GIVEN A HEARTBEAT OF IT’S OWN. ‘LAST OF SONGS’ SYMBOLIZES THESE SCRAPS OF SONGS AND LONG HARBOURED MELODIES DECONSTRUCTED AND RE-IMAGINED WITH A LUSCIOUS NEW VISION.

NO TWO LAST OF SONGS PERFORMANCES ARE ALIKE, THEIR TRACKS TAKE ON A WHOLE NEW MEANING LIVE WITH THE DUO OPTING FOR DIFFERENT ORCHESTRAL FORMATS DEPENDING ON THE VENUE AND OCCASION. THEY’VE BEEN KNOWN TO PERFORM AS AN INTIMATE 6 PIECE, AS A STRING INFUSED 10 PIECE AND HAVE ALSO PLAYED LEGENDARY SHOWS WITH A 30+ PIECE ANDALUSIAN ORCHESTRA. THE RESULT IS LAYER UPON LAYER OF HAUNTING ARPEGGIOS AND ALLURING ORCHESTRAL LINES ACTING AS A WONDERFULLY ATMOSPHERIC BACKDROP FOR IRIT’S SULTRY VOCALS TO DISPLAY THEIR FULL RANGE OF EMOTIONS. HAVING BEEN FEATURED IN THE TEL AVIV JAZZ FESTIVAL & EILAT JAZZ FESTIVAL IN 2013 & 14; LAST OF SONGS IS NOW BUILDING MOMENTUM FOR AN INTERNATIONAL DEBUT- PRESENTING AT FESTIVALS WORLD WIDE THIS SUMMER & AUTUMN 2014.

Track Name: BYE BYE LOVE
Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness
I think I'm-a gonna cry

Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet caress
Hello emptiness
I feel like I could die
Bye bye my love goodbye

There goes my baby with someone new
She sure looks happy, I sure am blue
She was my baby till he stepped in
Goodbye to romance that might have been

Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness
I think I'm-a gonna cry

Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet caress
Hello emptiness
I feel like I could die
Bye bye my love goodbye

I'm through with romance, I'm through with love
I'm through with countin' the stars above
And here's the reason that I'm so free
My lovin' baby is through with me

Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness
I think I'm-a gonna cry

Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet caress
Hello emptiness
I feel like I could die
Bye bye my love goodbye

Bye bye my love goodbye
Bye bye my love goodbye
Bye bye my love
Track Name: NO MORE BLUES (Feat. the Alaev family)
No more blues
I'm going back home
No more blues
I promise no more to roam
Home is where the heart is
The fun and parties
My heart's been right there all along
No more fears
And no more sighs
No more tears
I've said my last good-byes
If trouble beckons me I swear I'm going to refuse
I'm going to settle down
There'll be no more blues

Everyday when I am far away
My thoughts turn homeward, forever homeward
I've travelled round this world in search of happiness
But all the happiness I found was in my hometown

No more blues
I'm going back home
No more blues
I'm through with all my wanderings
Now I'll settle down and never roam
Find a man and make a home
When we settle down
There'll be no more blues
Nothing but happiness
When we settle down
There'll be no more blues
Track Name: YOU'RE MY THRILL
Billie Holiday – You're My Thrill
Songwriters: Gorney, jay / Clare, sidney

You're my thrill
You do something to me
You send chills right through me
When I look at you
'Cause you're my thrill

You're my thrill
How my pulse increases
I just go to pieces
When I look at you
'Cause you're my thrill

Hmmm-nothing seems to matter
Hmmm-here's my heart on a silver platter
Where's my will
Why this strange desire
That keeps morning higher
When I look at you
I can't keep still
You're my thrill
Track Name: GET HAPPY
Composer: Harold Arlen
Lyrics: Ted Koehler.

Forget your troubles
Come on get happy
You better chase all you cares away
Shout hallelujah
Come on get happy
Get ready for the judgment day

The sun is shining
Come on get happy
The lord is waiting to take your hand
Shout hallelujah
Come on get happy
We're going to the promised land

We're heading across the river
Wash your sins away in the tide
It's all so peaceful on the other side

The sun is shining
Come on get happy
The lord is waiting to take your hand
Shout hallelujah
Come on get happy
We're going to the promised land

We're heading across the river
Wash your sins away in the tide
It's quiet and peaceful on the other side

Come on get happy
Chase your cares away
Shout hallelujah
Come on get happy
Get ready for the judgment day
Track Name: BLUES IN THE NIGHT
Songwriters
Arlen, Harold/mercer, Johnny

My mama done tol' me when I was in pigtails
My mama done tol' me, "Hon
A man's gonna sweet talk and give ya the big eye
But when the sweet talkin's done

A man is a two-face
A worrisome thing who'll leave ya to sing
The blues in the night"

Now the rain's a-fallin'
Hear the train's a callin', whooee
My mama done tol' me
Hear dat lonesome whistle
Blowin' 'cross the trestle, whooee!

My mama done tol' me, a-whooee-ah-whooee
Ol' clickety-clack's a-echoin'
Back th' blues in the night
The evenin' breeze'll start the trees to cryin'
And the moon'll hide it's light
When you get the blues in the night

Take my word, the mockingbird'll sing
The saddest kind o' song
He knows things are wrong
And he's right

From Natchez to Mobile, from Memphis to St. Joe
Wherever the four winds blow
I been in some big towns an' heard me some big talk
But there is one thing I know

A man's a two-face
A worrisome thing who'll leave ya to sing
The blues in the night

The evenin' breeze'll start the trees to cryin'
And the moon'll hide it's light
When you get the blues
Blues in the night

Take my word, the mockingbird'll sing
The saddest kind o' song
He knows things are wrong
And he's right

From Natchez to Mobile, from Memphis to St. Joe
Wherever the four winds blow, winds blow
I been in some big towns an' heard me some big talk
But there is one thing I know

A man's a two-face
A worrisome thing who'll leave ya to sing
The blues in the night
Yes, babe, only, only blues in the night
Track Name: YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS
Billie Holiday

You don't know what love is
Til you’ve learned the meaning of the blues
Until you’ve loved a love you've had to lose
You don't know what love is
You don't know how lips hurt
Until you've kissed and had to pay the cost
Until you've flipped your heart and you have lost
You don't know what love is

Do you know how a lost heart fears
/The thought of reminiscing
And how lips that taste of tears
Lose their taste for kissing

You don't know how hearts burn
For love that cannot live yet never dies
Until you've faced each dawn with sleepless eyes
You don't know what love is

You don't know how hearts burn
For love that cannot live yet never dies
Until you've faced each dawn with sleepless eyes
You don't know what love is
Track Name: GUESS WHO I SAW TODAY
Guess who I say today:
Written by Murray Grand
Lyrics by Elisse Boyd

You're so late getting home from the office
Did you miss your train?
Where you caught in the rain?
No, don't bother to explain

Can I fix you a quick martini?
As a matter of fact
I'll have one with you
For to tell you the truth
I've had quite a day too

Guess who I saw today, my dear
I went in town to shop around for something new
And thought I'd stop and have a bite when I was through

I looked around for someplace near, and it occurred to me
Where I had parked the car, there is a most attractive
French cafe and bar, it really wasn't very far

The waiter showed me to a dark, secluded corner
And when my eyes became accustomed to the gloom
I saw two people at the bar who were so in love
That even I could spot it clear across the room

Guess who I saw today, my dear
I've never been so shocked before
I headed blindly through the door
They didn't see me passing through

Guess who I saw today?
Guess who I saw today?
Guess who I saw today?
I saw you
Track Name: WILLOW WEEP FOR ME
Lyrics and music by Ann Ronell

Willow weep for me
Willow weep for me
Bend your branches green along the stream that runs to sea
Listen to my plea
Hear me willow and weep for me

Gone my lovers dream
Lovely summer dream
Gone and left me here to weep my tears into the stream
Sad as I can be
Hear me willow and weep for me

Whisper to the wind and say that love has sinned
Left my heart a-breaking, and making a moan
Murmur to the night to hide its starry light
So none will see me sighing and crying all alone

Weeping willow tree
Weep in sympathy
Bend your branches down along the ground and cover me
When the shadows fall, hear me willow and weep for me

Oh, Weeping willow tree
Weep in sympathy
Bend your branches down along the ground and cover me
When the shadows fall, hear me willow and weep for me
Track Name: THE ROSE (Feat. Mark Eliahu)
Some say love, it is a river
That drowns the tender reed.
Some say love, it is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed.
Some say love, it is a hunger,
An endless aching need.
I say love, it is a flower,
And you its only seed.

It's the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance.
It's the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance.
It's the one who won't be taken,
Who cannot seem to give,
And the soul afraid of dyin'
That never learns to live.

When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long,
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong,
Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed that with the sun's love
In the spring becomes the rose.
Track Name: GOOD MORNING HEARTACHE
Good morning, heartache, you ole gloomy sight
Good morning, heartache, thought we'd said goodbye last night
I turned and tossed until it seemed you had gone
But here you are with the dawn
Wish I'd forget you
but you're here to stay
It seems I met you
When my love went away
Now everyday I start by saying to you
Good morning, heartache, what's new?

Stop haunting me now
Can't shake you, no how
Just leave me alone
I've got those Monday blues
Straight through Sunday blues

Good morning, heartache, here we go again
Good morning, hearache, you're the one who knew me when
Might as well get used to you hangin around
Good morning, heartache, sit down

Stop haunting me now
Can't shake you, no how
Just leave me alone
I've got those Monday blues
Straight through Sunday blues

Good morning, heartache, here we go again
Good morning, hearache, you're the one who knew me when
Might as well get used to you hangin around
Good morning, heartache, sit down
Track Name: SKYLARK
Lyrics: Johnny Mercer
Melody: Hoagy Carmichael

Skylark, have you anything to say to me?
Won't you tell me where my love can be?
Is there a meadow in the mist
where someone's waiting to be kissed?

Skylark, have you seen a valley green with spring
where my heart can go a journeying
over the shadows and the rain
to a blossom covered lane?

And in your lonely flight
haven't you heard the music in the night,
wonderful music,


faint as a will o' the wisp, crazy as a loon,
sad as a gypsy serenading the moon.

Oh, skylark, I don't know if you can find these things
but my heart is riding on your wings.
So if you see them anywhere
won't you lead me there?
Track Name: MORE THAN YOU KNOW
More than you know, more than you know
Man of my heart, I love you so
Lately I've found, you're on my mind
More than you know

Whether you're right, whether you're wrong
Man of my heart, I'll string along
I need you so
More than you'll ever know

Loving you the way that I do
There's nothing I can do about it
Loving may be all you can give
But honey, I can't live without it

Oh, how I'd sigh, how I'd cry
If you got tired and said goodbye
More than I show
More than you'll ever know
