“Fly Me to the Moon”, originally titled “In Other Words”, is a popular song written in 1954 by Bart Howard. Kaye Ballard made the first recording of the song in 1954. Since then it has become a frequently recorded jazz standard.
This swing version of the song performed by Cristiana Radu accompanied by Gabriel Brutaru, piano, and Marian Bulacu, saxophon, a video production by Panache Production, brings a cheerful version that highlights the artistic qualities of the singer herself.
Cristiana Radu is one of the Romanian young generation of musical talents who is distinguished by her good voice which was modeled by her friend, Ozana Barabancea, from whom she learned the basics of music, the notion of being an artist, the art of being human and the confidence in following her dream.
Recently Cristiana Radu has started a new musical project, accompanied by Django Sound Quartet and they perform live different musical genres, from 20s’ American style, standard jazz and 30s’swing to Brazilian jazz and genuine music of old Bucharest. Their versatile and elegant style is for private parties and corporate events as background music, cafe concerts or ethno-jazz and manouche jazz soirees.
Besides swing, jazz, latino, pop and dance, Cristiana carries forward the Aromanian folklore and traditions of this ethnic group because she believes her mission is to bestow the world a rainbow of emotions.
