MP3: Jay Bennett – “Mirror Ball” from Kicking at the Perfumed Air, due July 10 on Rock Proper.
This is a really nice piano ballad with lovely female backing vocals and subtle strings (Jay’s Mellotron?). It’s hard to believe it’s almost been a year since Bennett died. On the anniversary of his passing, May 24, his family will be launching a new foundation to support music and education. A few weeks later, the album will be available for free download with donations and CD purchases to benefit the foundation.
