painisanillusion sax, tumpets, ukulele,...looks like there's every instrument the world has to offer.

But in a good way, every track is unique without having too much different styles on an album. Favorite track: You Slipped Away.

Fizbo the Clown This is the most beautiful and well made Jazz/Blues Album I've ever listened to!

Every single instrument is filled with so much energy and love, you can almost feel the notes. Really, this is going to be on repeat! Favorite track: I'm So Mad.

mm2190 Incredible she is a true artist I love the fusion of all those sounds, I think she has a voice that will get very far I do not doubt that very soon we get to hear from her everywhere, she made an excellent mix of musical genres my favorite song It is certainly "You Smiled at Me" I hope very soon to hear from her. And of course an excellent record to enjoy at any time and anywhere the music makes you have a smile all day. Favorite track: You Smiled at Me.

Mihai Sorohan An artist that studied jazz and made an album with a little bit of everything for everybody, from blues and soul to pop and dubstep with a hint of some acoustic ukulele on top.. what's to not like here?
Love the guitar solo on "I'm So Mad" and the flute on "You Smiled At Me". Favorite track: I Wanted You Badly.

Track Name: Lady Albatross Featuring Ulrich Ellison - Beautiful Boy
“Beautiful Boy”

When I walked in I was drawn to you
You have no clue what you’re beauty can do
Flash back to grade school
You got me gigglin’ like a fool (giggle)
My heart goes
But your mouth surely shut that down

Beautiful boy
You’d be cool with me if you couldn’t speak
Beautiful boy
Stay beautiful and please don’t speak

You said I had
Cute little tits like your ex-girlfriend
Cute little tits like your ex-girlfriend
Cute little tits like your ex-girlfriend
How nice of you to notice them! ahhh

Beautiful boy
You’d be cool with me if you couldn’t speak
Beautiful boy
Stay beautiful and please don’t speak

You got me over here lickin’ my lips boy
You know you fine as hell
Once you start moving your lips boy
It’s time to say farewell

Well, it didn’t hurt when I fell from heaven
Daddy is not a baker, but I got nice buns
Can’t pick me ‘cause I’m not your booger
Shut up, lean in, and give me some sugar

You got me over here lickin’ my lips boy
You know you fine as hell
Once you start moving your lips boy
It’s time to say farewell

Well, it didn’t hurt when I fell from heaven
Daddy is not a baker, but I got nice buns
Can’t pick me ‘cause I’m not your booger
Shut up, lean in, and give me some sugar
ahhh

Beautiful boy
You’d be cool with me if you couldn’t speak
Beautiful boy
Stay beautiful and please don’t speak ahhh

Beautiful boy
you’d be cool with me if you couldn’t speak
Beautiful boy
Stay beautiful and please don’t speak
Track Name: I Wanted You Badly
”I Wanted You Badly”

I said I wanted you badly
But I couldn’t let myself go
I’m trying to find a stable mind you see
You’re just too young for me

I said I wanted you badly
But I couldn’t let myself go
What could you know about pleasing me
I tell you this one for free

You look good and you know you do
I’m tempted by your charming smile
But I’m not gonna waste my time
‘Cause you’re too needy
Much too greedy for me
Blinded by thirst you can’t even see
And I gotta find the flavor I need

I said, I said, I said
Get up off of your knees
Stop begging me please
Who needs grape juice when there’s wine
I fill my cup all the time
(repeat)

I said I wanted you badly
But I couldn’t let myself go
All that you know is physical
I need incentive mentally

I said, I said, I said
Get up off of your knees
Stop begging me please
Who needs grape juice when there’s wine
I fill my cup all the time
(repeat)

I said I wanted you badly
Track Name: Lady Albatross featuring Ulrich Ellison - Diamonds
“Diamonds”

You give her diamonds
You give me coal
She throws me rubies
Red as her soul
My emerald eyes
Hard to disguise
Wish I had diamonds
Instead of lies

Diamonds in your eyes
When you see her
Diamonds in your eyes
Can’t tell lies

Cold coal in your eyes
But not to my surprise
There’s no diamonds in your eyes
No diamonds in your eyes
When you see me

You give her diamonds
You give me coal
She throws me rubies
Red as her soul
My emerald eyes
Hard to disguise
Wish I had diamonds
Instead of lies

Diamonds in your eyes
When you see her
Diamonds in your eyes
Can’t tell lies

Cold coal in your eyes
But not to my surprise
So just tell me tell me
(diamonds in your eyes)
Tell me tell me
(diamonds in your eyes)
Please just tell me
The truth

You give her diamonds
You give me coal
She throws me rubies
Red as her soul
My emerald eyes
Hard to disguise
Wish I had diamonds
Instead of your lies
Track Name: Lady Albatross featuring Mihai Sorohan - You Smiled at Me
”You Smiled at Me”

You smiled at me
Before you walked away
And I won’t (won’t)
Be afraid (afraid)
Of what will come

Won’t be afraid (afraid)
Won’t be afraid (afraid)
Won’t be afraid (afraid)
(Of what will come)
Won’t be afraid (afraid)
(Of what will come)
(ooo awww ahh)

You sat close to me
Before you held my hand
And I won’t (won’t)
Be afraid (afraid)
Of what will come

Won’t be afraid (afraid)
Won’t be afraid (afraid)
Won’t be afraid (afraid)
(of what will come)
Won’t be afraid (afraid)
(of what will come)
(ooo awww ahh)

You smiled at me
Before I said “I do”
And I smiled
When you said
“I do” too

We woke up within a dream we thought we had
We woke up within a dream we thought we had
And now we know of all our dreams
They’re picture perfect waiting for us
And now we know of all our dreams
They’re picture perfect waiting for us
Track Name: You Slipped Away
”You Slipped Away”

You slipped away and now your soul is gone
You slipped away and now your soul is gone

Jumped away from all you’re pain and sorrows
swallowed all those pills and burned inside

You slipped away and now your soul is gone
You slipped away and now your soul is gone

Excuse me for my anger approach to this
but how could you be so selfish?

You slipped away and now your soul is gone
You slipped away and now your soul is gone

What was going on in your mind at the time?
Could I have changed your mind?
Track Name: Lady Albatross Featuring Vidar Berge - I'm So Mad
”I’m So Mad”

I’m so mad
I’m so mad
I’m so mad
I’m so mad
Fear my wrath
Whoa look back
It’s comin’
