Editorial Review of Giant's Dance:Australian exclusive release.
With Their Debut Release Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost Receiving Critical Acclaim And Two Grammy Nominations, The Creative Forces Behind 1 Giant Leap, Jamie Catto And Duncan Bridgeman Return With Their Much Anticipated Follow Up Release What About Me? . As A Founding Member Of Famed British Dance Act Faithless, Jamie Catto Has Produced Numerous Top Ten Hits Worldwide, With Two Albums Achieving Gold Status In The Uk Alone. His 1 Giant Leap Counter-Part Duncan Bridgeman, Achieved A Number One Dance Hit As A Member Of Groundbreaking Soul Band I Level In The Early 80 s, And Continued On To Become A Successful Producer And Remixer, Working With Transvision Vamp, Duran Duran, The Eurythmics, Shakespeare's Sister & Paul Mccartney.
The Backbone Of The 1 Giant Leap Project Is Formed By Each Masterpiece Beginning With A Pre-Composed Backing Track Which Grows And Develops As New Layers Are Added. Rather Than Gathering Samples And Taking Them Back To A Studio, Collaborators Were Able To Hear The Contribution From Previous Collaborators Resulting In A Unique Organic Creative Process. Bridgeman Explains, We Have 15 Pieces Of Music We Travel With. What We Do Is Give Them Our Beat, Or A Piece Of Our Music, Something That Will Inspire Them. They All Have Radio Headphones; So They re Listening To Our Music. Then They Add Their Music And Sing Their Song. This Is From Every Country Across The World, Each Person Hearing In The Headphones What The Last Person Did. Every Country Across The World Equates To Over 50 Locations Visited Worldwide In The Production Of The Album.
Some Of The Collaborators Who Add Their Music And Sing Their Song Include Kd Lang, Michael Stipe, Alanis Morissette, Michael Franti, Carlos Santana, Stewart Copeland, Maxi Jazz, And Baba Maal Alongside African Tribal And Bedouin Musicians, Chinese Rappers, Gabonese Pygmies And Tuvan Throat Singers Masterfully Crafted Into A Truly Unique Musical Experience.
4-Years, 5 Continents And 50 Locations In The Making, What About Me? Sets Out To Capture The Immense Cultural Diversity Of The World We Live In, A Time Capsule Of Humanity At Its Most Inspirational. A Unique And Inspiring Musical Journey That Will Defy Any Pre-Conceptions That You Should Have Left Behind Before You Pressed Play.

This band should have worldwide acclaim!! Kevin's vocals are superb! Karen's voice and her use of the Irish Flute/tin whistle... unmatched anywhere! And Steve...well Steve is a complete and utter KING on guitar and vocals. I have had the privelage and honour to sit in with these folks on a few occassions and they are the living, breathing, PULSE of Celtic music. PLEASE play more of them on Celtic Radio!!
