"Angel In Blue"- General Lafayette - By Roberto Danova

Roberto Danova

“Angel In Blue” –  General Lafayette

I first heard the music of Angel in Blue many years ago whilst I was driving home from the south of England at about 5 o’clock in the morning. I was feeling rather emotionally drained, having just had some sad news about a dear friend and was now experiencing one of life’s darker periods.

I was numbed to say the least. For no particular reason I switched on the car radio and from an early morning BBC broadcast, this beautiful music filled my ears and in a few moments, lifted up my spirits. Pondering on the mind and soul of the composer of this music, I was able to return home in a better frame of mind.

More amazingly, about two days later, my then publisher John Nice of Valentine Music London , phoned to tell me, he had a certain Roberto Danova in his office asking after me, and he put us in touch. Since that day Roberto and I have remained good friends and have collaborated on an original  musical production Nostradamus.    

“I can honestly say that having known Roberto over many years, he is without any doubt one of the most prolific, hard working, original and talented composers I have ever had the privilege to work with. His imagination is at times unrivalled.”  Dario Poli

General Lafayette is the creation of composer, arranger and producer Roberto Danova whose prolific song writing has resulted in over 80 Lafayette recordings. The magic sound of a real trumpet is backed by digital and live orchestration and arranged in a contemporary style with a most distinctive touch. The heady pulse of this romantic music is exciting and beautifully simple and evokes a feeling of well-being.
Roberto Danova’s productions and flair for intriguing sounds and voices add to the mystique and flavour of his writing. The result is an inspirational atmosphere instantly recognisable – each time making it an unforgettable, soulful experience, which will endure and enchant listeners worldwide.  (From Plaza Records Ltd Website)

    • Nael, You Are so right; Roberto’s musical creations never fail to touch the heart of the listener, because he is a man who writes from the heart, and instinctively we recognise this quality which effortlessly penetrates us.
      Having met and worked with him, I can testify to his endearing qualities and special talents.

    I used to own this very tune & would play it again & again & again I also used to play it for my ex's son when was just a baby & it would put him to sleep in no time or if he was upset it would calm him down. I first heard it played on my local radio station Manx radio & knew I wanted it.

    • Jason, Thanks for your comment. It’s great music indeed and because of it, I met the composer Roberto Danova and we became good friends and eventually worked together. nice story about your baby boy and the soothing effect that “Angel in Blue” had on him. A good way to introduce a child to good music.
