Tracklist: Beside the Fountain InSteve Nieve Its Only A Test - Tikal & Dj Pin - Planetary Nation 005 (Full On) his life partner, psychoanalyst, writer, and film producer Muriel Teodori, collaborated on the well-received opera, Welcome to the Shake It And Break It - Ladds Black Aces - Vol.
1, in which they enlisted the talents of Elvis Costello, Sting, and Robert Wyatt. Nieve brought these four together again, as well as a host of other friends, in a series of musically conversant duets. Also featured here are old and new friends like Vanessa Paradis, Glenn Tilbrook, Laurie Anderson, Ron Sexsmith, and others; some of these singers also appear in the session band.
Nieve's trademark is musical ambition. Though most of these songs are in recognizable forms, they take chances. The jazzy art song "You Lie Sweetly" uses Sting's lower register to fuel a modern torch song. The deep upright bass by Benoit de Segonzac, and Nieve's own virtuoso playing on grand piano, are as seductive as the vocals. It reveals Nieve's willingness to stretch himself, writing lyrics in rudimentary French in a modern chanson -- the first of three songs in that language here -- as a salute to his adoptive home of Paris.
Wyatt and Teodori are wonderful soloists; their I Do Not Miss You (Nostalgia #2) - Steve Nieve - Together vulnerability is countered by sly humor. Nieve's plaintive, everyman voice adds enough weight to root it to earth even as his atmospheric keyboards push the other way. Unfortunately, "La Crise" with Cali is marred by that singer's Bono affectation, though the song's chorus has the best hook on the album.
The slithering hooks in "Summer Song Espionage ," with Tilbrook, make for a deft, luxurious, pop song; breezy guitars, cello, keys, and an infectious melody meld the singers' voices seamlessly. ToGetHer is a I Do Not Miss You (Nostalgia #2) - Steve Nieve - Together conceived album; its production, though relatively clean, contains all sorts of subtle shades and textures.
At large, it is a welcome return to what Nieve does best: writing, arranging, and performing wonderful songs. Acquire, please legitimate discs, which no doubt will adorn your collection!
