Time to revisit Perpetuum Jazzile, the Slovenian a capella jazz choir. Here they pay tribute to the Swedish vocal group ABBA with a medley of ABBA’s songs. We have long admired this group.

Perpetuum Jazzile is an a Capella jazz choir from Slovenia. This video was filmed in Portoroz, Slovenia on the 18th of July 2009. I am posting it is the belief that somewhere it is warm and sunny and people are going to the beach and having picnics.
We live in the great Northwest, and it is rainy, cold and 52°. The weatherman promised three nice days this weekend — we got one.

Slovenian a capella jazz choir Perpetuum Jazzile is back with some new recordings from their annual Vokal Xtravaganzza concert.
This is a unique combination of Slovenian composer Iacobus Gallus Carniolus’ renaissance masterpiece “Ecce qomodo moritur” with the Michael Jackson hit from the early 90s, “Will You Be There.” Enjoy!
Perpetuum Jazzile is Slovenia’s one and only jazz choir, and a very fine one indeed, which we’ve featured before. Here they are singing an arrangement of an international hit from the 1970′s called “Eres Tu” (“You are”). You may very well recognize the song (but probably not until around the 1:30 mark or so) if you are at all familiar with easy listening from the early 1970′s — or perhaps if you’ve ever ridden an elevator.
The song was Spain’s entry into the Eurovision Song Contest in 1973, and became an international hit after the song reached second place in the contest. This arrangement, however, starts out with another song by the name of “Brez Besed” (“Without Words”) which was the Yugoslavian Eurovision entry seven years earlier, in 1966. The songs are so similar in parts that some Yugoslavs accuse the Spaniards of pilfering their melody.
Here, Perpetuum Jazzile attempts a little musical diplomacy with a happy arrangement that marries the two. They are singing in Slovene, Spanish and English.
The perfect happy little song to start the day.
