My friend Bix sings here at the highest level, amazing, talented and most passionate - and it’s a true honor and joy for me to introduce our duo debut today. For this we chose the song ‚Mona Lisa‘ (which got famous by the great Nat King Cole in the year 1950). The original melody was composed by Jay Livingston und Raymond B. Evans and appeared first in the movie ‚Captain Carey‘ in the same year, a bit earlier.
This most lovely song, whose textline compares the woman with the mystic smile on the famous painting of Leonardo da Vinci (painted 1503 - 1506), won an Oscar for the best movie song. This was the first time for a movie that did not cover the filming of a musical.
The art processing tries to emphasize the modern character of our interpretation with the mystic jazz bossa flavour :)
