And… so it begins… at long last!

Two glimpses into the genius that is Jess

28 03 2011

It’s been a long journey, since starting a humble blog extolling the vocal virtues of one Jess Roden. Along the way, many other like-minded folk have joined that journey. Some more directly connected to the story than others, but all sharing one thing: the ability to recognize and appreciate one of the outstanding vocal talents of our time.

Now, the journey is nearing the end….and perhaps another one is beginning. Just up around the bend, the promise of a release so all-encompassing, that we will finally get to hear the wealth of this man’s work in all its glory. This is from a time when only talent would get you through the door. Read about the project at Neil Storey’s excellent blog HERE, & HERE For my part, I invite you to listen…….

A tribute to Jess Roden – Sweet Danger

29 06 2010

I finally finished the track this afternoon – one of my favourites – from the amazing ‘Butts Band’ album. I’ve occasionally played this just with an acoustic guitar on one or two solo shows here in Spain, but I really wanted to try and put a version down in the studio. I didn’t listen to the original while I worked on this,  I didn’t want to copy it note for note, rather do my own take on it. I’ve chucked in acoustic and electric guitars, electric piano, hammond, and a few other bits and pieces. All vocals and instrumentation is by yours truly, so therefore all mistakes are also! So here it is, tipping my hat to one the UK’s greatest ever vocalists……“Sweet Danger”.
