Jette-Ives is the pensive provocateur of feisty jazz singer Jette Kelly and inimitable composer-producer Holmes Ives. Simultaneously melancholic and lascivious, candid and metaphoric, sometimes jazzy and always charismatic--Jette-Ives''s debut album, In the Deep, is an intoxicating, unapologetically debauched liaison with temptation. In the Deep undulates beneath Jette Kelly''s cashmere voice and salacious pen; rises with the elegant composition and acclaimed production of Holmes Ives; and coolly lounges on the subtlety, grace, and superb musicianship of its instrumentalists.
In the year 2005, ever-lascivious Jette and always romantically contemplative Ives drank a lot of scotch and had several inspiring carnal exchanges (though not with one another). A careless affair left Jette locked in her house with a kitchen full of scotch and chocolate, which inspired Ives to choreograph her tempestuous, overly dramatic, (albeit sincere) self-induced solitude to music--thereby luring her, song by song, back to the outside world. In order to perform it, Ives said in reference to their album, you must leave your house.
In the Deep tongues-itself-in-cheek with the amused ''Darker Than You''; reveals the naughty ode to pleasure-pain, ''In the Presence of''...; offers a fiercely heartbroken ''Ultimately, Darling''; stalks one-lover-too-many in ''Vexed''; and weaves a tempestuous dance of masochistic seduction in the tango-inspired ''Proximity''. In the Deep is a painfully keen erotic introspection intertwined with trippy beats, jazzy upright bass, cinematic strings, and naughty thoughts imparted by a delicious voice.
