Lots of different things in this week’s Three From Leith – vocals recorded with the help of the SE Reflexions Filter (aka The Beast), an advert which isn’t all that it seems to be and some soul from a member of the family. I don’t think I’ve quite managed to get the settings right on my audio processor to cope with the changes brought about by the filter – hopefully the quality’s not bad enough to spoil your enjoyment of my ramblings !
Have a listen and see what this all means….
Jette-Ives – E
Jette-Ives is the amalgamation of writer/singer Jette Kelly (my new chocolate-eating friend and diet guru !!) and composer/producer Holmes Ives. The duo was introduced at a party in 2005 by a mutual friend who predicted an explosive collaboration. He was right. This is a track from their debut album, ‘In The Deep’, which will be released early in 2007. Keep your eyes on their website for details.
Lauran Gangl-Plant / The GangBangs UK – Swell
Now even as a qualified linguist I had trouble pinning Lauran’s accent down, though I knew she was Scots. It turns out that she is Glasgow born, moved to St Andrews until she was nine and then variously in the British Virgin Islands, Mecca, Memphis, Aix en Provence, Miami, NYC, Paris, Puerto Rico & LA. She’s sung with the Paris Opera Company, Robert Plant, Rod Stewart, Lou Reed, Julio Iglesias and Belinda Carlisle. Phew ! She’s engaged to Robert Plant’s nephew (uncle-in-law is singing backing vocals on this track !), though as you heard she loves me and informs me that the opening instrument is a Pipa and not a banjo as I thought !! A wonderfully friendly lady and a wonderfully upbeat and summery song. Go buy the Swell album here, or get The GangBangs UK on iTunes.

Ron Joseph – A Change Is Gonna Come
The Soul Man of Bourbon Street – my brother-in-law is an amazing showman, singer and drummer from New Orleans. If you’ve ever been on a Carnival Cruise, you might have experienced one of his incredible shows. He’s a born entertainer and really HAS to be seen live, working the crowds. A star !
Ron can be contacted via Three From Leith
Big props given out to:
The Electrical Language Podcast – my good friend Gabor’s parents fled Hungary 50 years ago during the revolution and came to England. This week’s very personal podcast talks about this black period in history and plays Hungarian artists. A must-listen and a fine example of what podcasting is all about.
