about

Jazzanova takes it to the next stage: The Funkhaus Studio Sessions.

Jazzanova producers, Stefan Leisering & Axel Reinemer, went into the studio with their 7 piece live band with Paul Randolph on vocals to record a 14 track set.

Whoever had the chance to see Jazzanova play live during the last three years knows how magical this experience can be. The Berlin based outfit transports the richness and sublimity of their productions (own compositions and remixes) perfectly on stage. And it adds this extra twist to the performance which makes the music even more tangible and human. In last November the 2 producers of Jazzanova, Stefan Leisering & Axel Reinemer & the original Jazzanova touring band (see below for full line up) brought the spirit of their extensive worldwide tour to the studio to record a typical live set - this time with proper recording gear and state-of-art engineering equipment though. The "Funkhaus Studio Sessions" marks Jazzanova's first live album release. Including the songs the band learned to love the most on tour over the last three years as well as the audience's favourites: From their initial breakthrough smash "Fedime's Flight" to "Look What You're Doin To Me" off the "Of All The Things" album from 2008 and renditions and interpretations of Jazzanova remixes (f.e. the remix for Fat Freddy's Drop's "Flashback"). The 14 track strong set also includes a brand new tune with
"I Human", co-written by vocalist and bass player Paul Randolph, a constant member of the live band and now of course the voice of the "Funkaus Studio Sessions". An album that will please every Jazzanova fan and every true music lover with an affinity for warm, soulful, deep and genuine musicianship. When have you last heard a studio album so alive, fleshly, organic and solid at the same time? It captures the feel of a live recording but without any flaws due to poor recording equipment or sound aesthetics.

The sessions at the legendary GDR Rundfunk Orchestra studios in East Berlin have also been filmed. Check out the accompanying video to "I Human" for some of its footage. With "Funkhaus Studio Sessions" Jazzanova will take you and their music to the next stage.

The musicians involved in this recording: Paul Randolph (Vocals), Arne Jansen (Guitar), Carl Michael Grabinger (Drums), Sebastian Studnitzky (Keys), Sebastian Borkowski (Sax/Flute), Stefan Ulrich (Trombone), Paul Kleber (Bass), Axel Reinemer (Electronics / Percussion), Stefan Leisering (Congas, Synths, Ampli-Celeste).

Track Name: Let Me Show Ya (Funkhaus Sessions)
Let Me Show Ya


If you’re through with love let me show ya
At least a thousand reasons why
You should take your time
Before you fall again
If you’re through with love now’s a good time
To wish upon a starry sky
And take your time
Trust that you will win

So you’ve got that look again
Like you’ve lost your best friend
Say he didn’t get to know ya
Didn’t get to see ya
For all the beauty in you
You chose to set aside
You chose to compromise
Every time you saw the
Dangerous signs come crashing in
Oh we’re so hard on ourselves
We’re only human
There lessons we all can learn


If you’re through with love let me show ya
At least a thousand reasons why
You should take your time
Before you fall again
If you’re through with love now’s a good time
To wish upon a starry sky
And take your time
Trust that you will win
Oh it’s so hard to be alone
And feels so good
To have a kindred soul
But it’s better when it’s on equal ground
That’s the kind of love that stays around

So he charmed you wined a dined
Picked you up right on time
But never seemed to wonder
Never showed an interest
In anything about you
You chose to set aside
You chose to compromise
Every time you saw the
Dangerous signs come crashing in
Oh we’re so hard on ourselves
We’re only human
There lessons we all can learn



If you’re through with love let me show ya
At least a thousand reasons why
You should take your time
Before you fall again
If you’re through with love now’s a good time
To wish upon a starry sky
And take your time
Trust that you will win
Oh it’s so hard to be alone
And feels so good
To have a kindred soul
But it’s better when it’s on equal ground
That’s the kind of love that stays around
Dry your eyes don’t fret
You know better than that
Til you learn how special you are
You’ll put up with smack like that
Dry your eyes don’t fret
You know better than that
Til you learn how special you are
You’ll put up with smack like that
Dry your eys don’t fret
You’re special
I’m just schooling you
Oo oo oo
Dry your eyes don’t fret
You know better than that
Til you learn how special you are
You’ll put up with smack like that
Dry your eys don’t fret
You’re special
I’m just schooling you
You’re special
Track Name: I Human feat. Paul Randolph
I Human


We live a life
Of bits and bytes
Where we unite
Is in the cyber life
Use thumbs to text
Than speak out right
I’m sitting next to you
Lets have a conversation
Yeah yeah I know okay
This a brand new day
We share a common past
The world is moving faster
I miss the personal touch
Without abbreviations
I dedicate this song
To the all human nation
I and I
You and I
Remember when we took the time
We made a plan to break away
To get together and celebrate, celebrate

Ch.
I’d rather look into your eyes
And feel a connection
Share the rhythm and the rhyme
And watch your expression
I’d rather look into your eyes
And see my reflection
Share the rhythm and the rhyme
Make an impression

Track Name: Look What You're Doin' To Me (Funkhaus Sessions)
Look What You’re Doing To Me


I am the voyeur laying next to you at night
Watching you in your sleep
I am your source of strength when it all falls down, and you're on your knees
And when the day comes and everybody's gone, you can call me a friend
I'll be here for your new beginnings and I'll be here in the end, here in the end...
I'm going to tell the world I love you baby girl
Shout it out in the streets
Gonna to talk about the joy you bring me girl
What you're doing to me
I am the shining star you see at night when you're in the storm
I am the beating heart that's by your side when you're in my arms
And when the day comes when everybody's long gone I'm watching you sleep
You don't have to worry if you've got my heart
It's yours to keep
I'm going to tell the world I love you baby girl
Shout it out in the streets
Gonna to talk about the joy you bring me girl
What you're doing to me
I'm going to tell the world I love you baby girl
Shout it out in the streets
Gonna to talk about the joy you bring me girl
What you're doing to me
There is love for all God's children
We all breathe in the same sun
We all sleep under the stars at night
We know that we are one
There is love for all God's children
We all breathe in the same sun
We all sleep under the stars at night
We know that we are one
And you're the one for me
I'm going to tell the world I love you baby girl
Shout it out in the streets
Gonna to talk about the joy you bring me girl
What you're doing to me
I'm going to tell the world I love you baby girl
Shout it out in the streets
Gonna to talk about the joy you bring me girl
What you're doing to me
Track Name: Lucky Girl (Funkhaus Sessions)
Lucky Girl

You’re a lucky girl
You have the eyes of the world upon your skin
My day begins
Carioca Girl
Tell me where does the shore and the heavens end
And resend

There’s no mistaken we have shared this glance before
Yes you recognize me que beleza
Beleza meu amour

You’re a lucky girl
You even have your own special music theme
How supreme
Long of lash and hair of curl
Reaching far past the softness of your curves
Say the word

There’s no mistaken we have shared this glance before
Yes you recognize me que beleza
Beleza meu amour

You’re a lucky girl
Adored by many but saved your love for one
And I’m the one
I’m a lucky boy
I get to spend my whole life with my dream come true
And that’s you

There’s no mistaken we have shared this glance before
Yes you recognize me que beleza
Beleza meu amour
Track Name: No Use (Funkhaus Sessions)
No Use


There’s no use turning around
There’s no use changing my mind

There’s no dream
Just a mental desert
Like a scream inside my mind
What am I supposed to do
Use to miss
The hidden signs
It’s too late for more advice
What am I supposed to do

There’s no use turning around
There’s no use changing my mind

Abandon your past
Pain has nurtured me
Like my own destiny
What am I suppose to be
Love is dead and gone
All tear I’ve cried
Can’t fight my thoughts of fire time
Why do I believe in you
Track Name: Flashback (Funkhaus Sessions)
Flashback


There's something natural in the way you touch me
it's a feeling that I can't describe
something mystic in that soul connection
something magic in your misty eyes

Don't you say that it's all the same
don't you say that it's all the same, no
'cos there's something that I can't explain, 'bout this
something that I can't explain, yeah yeah

I can't explain
Oh no ooh
Hey, yeah

before the night is over
i wanna shake the question
i wanna leave it for now
without another mention
we should be letting go
instead of holding on
but in the eye in my mind
the mystery is born

no use in looking further
you know it isn't there
and you can stare all you want
the answers won't appear
try to find it but i lose myself
i lose myself in you
i said, i lose myself in you
yes, i lose myself in you
yeah, i lose myself in you

breathe easy lovers (x4)
breathe easy

i know you're only wasting time
breathe easy
questioning between the lines
breathe easy
feeling knows no name
it is, what it is, and there's no explaining
what it is, what it is, yeah yeah-eah
there´s something natural in the way you touch me
it's a feeling that i can't describe
something mystic in that soul connection
something magic in your misty eyes

don't you say that it's all the same
don't you say that it's all the same, no
'cos there's something that i can't explain, 'bout this
something that i can't explain, yeah yeah
Track Name: Little Bird (Funkhaus Sessions)
Little Bird

Of all the things I found in life
No moment is better than this
Of all the things I've ever known
Nothing prepared me for your kiss
If we fly... if we fly... if we fly into the sun
Of all the things I needed baby
You were my cherished one

Little bird told me
That you can't find your way home
Little bird has shown me
That you can't run away from love

Darkness falls upon the city
Like the ocean falls upon the sand
Waves of sorrow leave me breathless
Can you love this broken man?
If I try... if I try... if I try to love again
I wake up every morning
Unsure of where I stand

Little bird told me
That you can't find your way home
Little bird has shown me
That you can't run away from love

Open wide my feelings
And tear me down until I break, yes
Show me what the real is
Guaranteed to seal my fate
If I cry... if I cry... if I cry
Will you be gone, oh?
Help me above my sadness
Tell me I'm the only one

Hold you
Hold me
Over
Angel
Hold me
Hold me
Hold me
Angel

Love is only
Given when you
Feel it in your heart
I knew it when you
Kissed my body
Loving every part

Of all the things I found in life
No moment's better than this
Of all the things I'd ever knew
Nothing prepared me for your kiss
If we fly... if we fly... if we fly into the sun
Of all the things I needed baby
You were my cherished one

Little bird told me
That you can't find your way home
Little bird has shown me
That you can't run away from love
Track Name: I Can See (Funkhaus Sessions)
I Can See


Silently suffering
Hidden by an incidental smile
Holding on for something else
To come along and make my life worthwhile
'Till it comes
I'm going to be okay
Slowly waiting for the end of days
Every night I'm gonna be alright
The demons come and take care of my pride

I can see in your eyes
That what's coming ain’t a big surprise
I can see, oh, in your eyes
That what's coming ain’t a big surprise

Over time
People change
Slowly their wealth will rearrange
All the while
I keep holding on
Trying to find the will to carry on

I can see in your eyes
That what's coming ain’t a big surprise
I can see, oh, in your eyes
That what's coming ain’t a big surprise

I just want to know
Please, just let me know
I want to know
I'll do anything for you girl
Slowly nothing taking soul
I just don't want to lose control

Life is green
Alone for me
Ever since you walked right through the dark
Please believe there is no change
Brought you said you had it all before

I can see in your eyes
That what's coming ain’t a big surprise
I can see, oh, in your eyes
That what's coming ain’t a big surprise

I can see in your eyes
That what's coming ain’t a big surprise
I can see, oh, in your eyes
That what's coming ain’t a big surprise
Track Name: Boom Clicky Boom Klack (Funkhaus Sessions)
Boom Clicky Boom Klack / Text: Shaun Escofferey


How it ever came to this
There’s just to much bitterness
Cause our life is full of bliss
Happiness is what we live
Don’t concern ourselves with much
The rat race we just don’t touch
And we’ll never move to fast
Cause our proof has gotta last

It’s what we do

Yes we give unselfishly
Don’t get caught up in hippocracy
Often go against the grain
Riding on a different train
We don’t live by any rules
Cause we’re free to bend the fools
Everyday has something new
Cause we do just what we choose

It’s what we do

There are many
Ways to play the game
Changin faces
But the rules remain the same
Constantly movin’
Through the sands of time
I don’t know what it is what it is
But it sure feels fine
Track Name: Let It Go (Funkhaus Sessions)
Let It Go


Lifes questions time will solve
You won’t make it on your own
A troubled minds a troubled heart
So I’m told
Turnaround it has to start from the soul
Life’s answers minds can’t hold
Just ride it as time unfolds

Let it go

A troubled minds a troubled heart
So I’m told
Turnaround it has to start from the soul
Life’s answers minds can’t hold
Just ride it as time unfolds

Let it go
