BYE BYE LOVE 08:13
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

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

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

GET HAPPY 06:40
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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

SKYLARK 04:50
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?
12.
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

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.
