Enjoy the results,
and greetings from Berlin
PS (background story):
The concept is simple: one day, one song, arranged on the spot, recording of a continuous live take and some video footage to our recorded playback. The song was announced to the musicians two weeks before the recording.
What was considered to be an easy task as the song structure is quite simple turned out to be a challenge for us musicians and Jörg behind the camera. It needed concentration to deliver a live-performance of the different parts chosen during an arranging session while still keeping a certain flow of the song.
The outcome is on our opinion a solid and own interpretation of this well known Pop classic.
