So, I’m in the process of wrapping up post-production on the audiobook of Aaron Paul Lazar’s Gus LaGarde mystery, Lady Blues: Forget-Me-Not. The book concerns itself deeply with memory and lost love, and so when I was looking for vocals for the theme music (to go over the opening and closing credits), I had a hard time — until I came across an amazing set of a capella scat recordings on ccMixter by an artist known as SackJo22 called…. Well, called “Love & Remember.” I dropped the vocals over my backing track, moved them around to hit the right rhythms, added some reverb… And that was it. They were perfect.
I’m using the recordings under a Creative Commons license. The originals are here: http://ccmixter.org/files/SackJo22/31172
Please check out some of her other recordings, and tell her how amazing you think she is!
