Montblanc

It feels like the tomorrow of yesterday.
But it´s now.

When someone asks me: “… well it’s Indie/Filmscore/Crooner-Popish..in a way..”
If it was a movie: Doris Day and Sean Connery would be taking a ride in a Peugeot Convertable along the Cote D’Azur. Maybe Wes Anderson is a good director for that?

It would be a Telecaster rather then a Gibson or a DX7 and if it was a place then somewhere in Italy – a table with homemade italian food , underneath a cypresstree with the sound of crickets and some mandoline from the other side of the street.

It sounds like Azur Blue (RAL 5009) in a melancolic yet hopefull major-ish manner. These are the things that come to my mind to describe vaguely but strikingly the music from Montblanc.

Its the Longterm/unfinished/unreleased Soloproject from Kai Blankenberg. Being a member of the band Subterfuge and also a Music-Studioowner-Mixing-Mastering engineer Kai had the peerless oportunity to invite friends and fellow musicians to join him on recordingsessions that took place over the last years – Horns, Strings, Drums, Flute – you name it.

It’s half way done and soon – once he recorded the cricket/mandoline ensemble for some extra capri flavor – it will come to light to find its way to you.

Maybe on a Vespa (in RAL 5009), with the Concord or from a pivoting Tapemachine. Then what do you say when someone asks you…?
