Yéha is an evocative piece of music led warmly ahead by Rey Cote' Soul & Saxophone.
JP Ranger's vocal, lyrics and acoustic rhythm blend in with the sax to create a surreal atmosphere. The dreamy lyrics evoke moments in the lives of individuals in an urban setting and city imagery abounds throughout the song.
Yéha is also an anthem that calls out into the night sky to ask for a response as to who we are. There's something quasi spiritual about the song. It's an original and warm piece of music that is deep, yet fun to listen to. One can clearly focus on individual instruments and enjoy each musician’s unique contribution to the whole. Some musical influences can be heard throughout the song. Artists such as Peter Gabriel, Paul Simon, The Police and Sting. There’s an impromptu Sax solo at the end of the song that adds a touch of humor. The sax leaves you feeling good and warm.
Glen Scammell, on fretless bass guitar, and Gilles Chollete ,on drums, provide a solid and warm performance on their respective instruments. The band was very much in 'The Zone' when they recorded this piece, as all the initial bed tracks of each instrument were kept intact as part of the final mix. Yéha is the type of song you can pretty well enjoy anytime and anywhere whether at low, mid or high volume. Enjoy...
