Various Artists – Dis Cover – Donna Regina As Recorded By (Karaoke Kalk, 2015)
With this, their twelfth album, Donna Regina [Günther and Regina Janssen] continue to evolve and progress, creating music that both interests them, and music that allows them to create an atmospheric adventure that doesn’t so much follow the times or the fads of the day, but holds sway by existing in a recognizable moment ... and by doing so, allows their musical creations to always sound fresh and inviting. Much of this has to do with the breathy voice Regina Janssen, as it floats in and out of Günther Janssen's melodies, melodies that are delivered with a light hand and sense of expansive beauty.
Though unknown to most, those who have discovered this couple [who now reside in Berlin, by way of Cologne] are well aware of their timeless musical interplay, especially here on “Dis Cover,” where they tribute old and new friends, developing what can only be described as musical gifts. Donna Regina is one of those groups you’re going to have to stumble on, and once you do, you’ll be off on an adventure that will certainly be worth you time.
Included on this outing are songs by Dean & Britta, The National Jazz Trio of Scotland, Schlammpeitziger, Chica and the Folder, Leichtmetall, Console, Il Tempo Gigante, Astrobal and Tom Terrien featuring Nina Savary, Dani Siciliano, Bertrand Burgalat, Mouse on Mars, Miłka, and Thomas Fehlmann featuring Gudrun Gut.
