Kurt Weill duo - September Song

Kurt Weill duo is a jazz group from Oslo, Norway composed of Hilde Leite Gaupås and Sigrun Eng. They perform in the best cabaret traditions of the German Weimar period, and draw inspiration from artists such as Lotte Lenya, Marlene Dietrich, Theresa Stratas, Meret Becker, Tom Waits, and Edith Piaf.


Oh, it's a long, long while
from May to December,
but the days grow short
when you reach September.

When the autumn weather
turns the leaves to flame,
one hasn't got time
for the waiting game.

Oh the days dwindle down
to a precious few,

And these few precious days
I'll spend with you.
These precious days
I'll spend with you.
These golden days
I'll spend with you

Letra de Maxwell Anderson y música de Kurt Weill

Ella, Billie y Sarah, verdaderas divas del jazz, te trasladan a otros lugares...

Muy bonito el video otoñal que acompaña a Sarah en su September...
