Faultlessly fitting tuxedo, hair slicked back, a cheeky look and Max Raabe sings the best of the 20s and early 30s with amusing nostalgia. Songs, hits and couplets. Cuban rumbas, cheerful foxtrots and elegant tangos – songs of amazingly serious, amusing, yet melancholy simplicity. The ironic lyrics suit the times today as much they did eighty years ago. In the concert halls of New York, Shanghai, Paris, Berlin and Moscow, in Tokyo, Los Angeles, Vienna, Amsterdam and Rome the audiences celebrate Max Raabe and his Palast Orchester with incredible enthusiasm.
This 2CD set is a unique document of the highly critically acclaimed live performance of Max Raabe & Palast Orchester at the legendary Carnegie Hall in New York in November 2007.
