You Can Do Magic: Jazzamor and "Nuit Magique"

Today's song is by Jazzamor, a duo founded in 2002 by Bettina Mischke and Roland Grosch. Originally part of a jazz quartet, they decided to explore jazz in a different direction by minimizing the instrumentation and blending in bossa nova rhythms and a lounge sensibility. Jazzamor's first album, Lazy Sunday Afternoon (2003), yielded a hit in the song Way Back, which was picked up by Nikon for an ad campaign. Since then, they have released five more albums to date. This song, Nuit Magique (Magical Night), is off of their 2006 CD release Travel and can also be found on the 2008 compilation Putumayo Presents: Euro Groove.
