This Wall
© 2017 Kenny Leverett

Janice has long wanted to sing a waltz...Bud was slow in writing one and, voila, Kenny (44kfl) asked her to sing a lovely composition of his. We were both amazed with the stark emotion of what he sent us and we did our best to do it justice. I was honored when he asked me to mix it.

So here's only the third J&B for 2017 -- sheeesh time is flying by this year.

We always much appreciate your time to listen and comment!

Bud (J&B)

What can I say, I didn't write this for Janice. I thought of her

after I was unhappy with my version, thought she might

consider trying it. I was so blown away with this "bent-note"

treatment of the song. I knew that she'd do a fantastic vocal

but I couldn't bring out the piano in the mix without compromising

other things. That's where Bud comes in, don't underestimate what

he brings to this. He made the piano and guitar much better and yet

kept what I consider the "star" instrument, the bass clear as a bell.

Tremendous mix, Bud, you are a pro! This was a great experience,

one that I hope I get to do again. It is a pleasure working with two

such wonderful people.

Kenny

Excellent! I first heard it yesterday too, got the heads up via the soundcloud stream page that you had uploaded a new one.
Cut and paste from what I said over on soundcloud:
Good song! Well written/arranged/produced. Vocal of course is as good as it gets! Great tone, so warm. Also like the harmonies, the way they were brought into the mix.

Well done to the three of you!
I enjoyed the ache in this which the graceful melody makes the most of. I love the way a waltz sweeps you along and the simple clarity of the arrangement here is just right - I agree with Kenny that Bud`s alchemy in the production shines through.
The vocal is something special, as we know to expect from Janice... but those understated ooohs at the close: magic.

Robert

This is about "as good as it gets".

Stellar performances by all three of you.

Bud - gorgeous mix! to the point that you don't even THINK about it (the mix) as you listen to this. It is just...RIGHT. (no surprise there).

Kenny - this is a beautiful song. To the point that you can't really pick any part that is better than the rest. Nonetheless:

"Chill in the air love isn’t fair
How did we find ourselves here
I missed the signs
Wasted my time
Letting you just disappear"

So fine. The chorus is perfect. This may be your best. And THAT is saying something!

Janice - I think this is your best vocal ever. And THAT is saying A LOT. Goosebumps.

This is like listening to The Eagles "doing what they do" to Tom Waits' "Ol 55".

Stunningly beautiful.

This is a great song, sung by a great singer, with a great sound. Kenny, your best write! Janice, it's the combination of feeling plus the technique of how you get in and out of notes that sets you apart from the ordinary. The little things that you do vocally make it very special. Bud, Great job on the mix and the sound of the piano and the overall track. I'm 100% all in on this one. Tom

Hi Kenny.

Just fabulous.

An inspired piece of writing and so VERY professional throughout.

Janice. You bring a special quality to everything you sing and you still bring me out in goosebumps.

Bud. A perfect mix. Everything in it's own space, but working so well together. Magnificent.

Loved the whole thing. Congrats to all involved.

ROG.

Beautiful and sad J&B/Kenny! Wonderful production by all involved. The vocal is performed and produced in a flawless fashion. The arrangement and instrumentation is unarguably professionally done. Thanks, Torrey.

I think Robertkc had the perfect word for this - graceful. We couldn't agree more.

What a wonderful piece of writing by Kenny. of course we knew Janice would knock it out of the park - which she did. This is one of her very best, if not "the" best vocal we've heard from her. And Bud, the mix sounds better than what comes out of many Nashville studios. Three pros sounding like pros. We're not sure what else to say except simple wonderful!

Catching up on my User Showcase Forum listens this morning. First song was Floyd's "One True Heart" and now this.

There is absolutely no reason to ever turn to regular radio station again.

A top notch write, performance and production. A wonderful collaboration and an absolute joy to listen to.
