Songs and Bows is a group of fine musicians under the musical leadership of Axel Hagen, who wrote colorful arrangements for jazz combo and string quartet. Songs and Bows present a special selection of beautiful compositions from the “Great American Songbook.” Songs that endured the test of time and can still fascinate and enchant us through their melodic inventiveness and harmonic wealth. Combined with intelligent and witty lyrics, this body of work is surely a highlight in modern popular music, from the early 20th century on until today. The group is very happy to share their views on the interpretation of the art of playing great American popular songs from the Golden Age with audiences around the world. Soon a brand new cd will be released as well as video-material.
