Various Artists – Wavemusic Volume 14

Set to a luscious canvass of lavender skies and the dripping light of the evening sun, with the sweet smell of a hot summer’s day still lingering in the air. The Colombe d’Or hotel near the Côte d’Azur is a place to savor the beauty of the moment, enveloping its guests in an aura of clear, cloudless serenity. The result is a unique atmosphere that once provided inspiration for Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Marc Chagall and many other pioneering painters.

This magical location provides the perfect backdrop for Wavemusic Volume 14. Artists such as Norah Jones, Maysa Leak, Rick Braun, Mark Antoine, Joyce Cooling and Peter Getz deliver a musical journey for dreamers and romantics alike. To order Wavemusic Volume 14 visit Wavemusic.de.
