Dancing on a Volcano Trilogy 20 Years of Burst out Explosions

by Ralph De Jongh

After a full year working on this record, I feel like three beautiful healthy babies have been born in this world: Highway Man, Bemuse Me and Misty Train. All have a different character and are beautiful and special in their own unique way.

Album Notes
Ralph De Jongh – “Dancing On A Volcano – 20 Years of Burst Out Explosions” – 3cd’s – “Highway Man” / “Bemuse Me” / “Misty Train” – Ralph de Jongh Records

Ralph De Jongh – The Flying Dutchman is back with a sensational 3 cd box “Dancing On A Volcano -20 Years of Burst Out Explosions”! You can entitle him a lovely blues-rockin’ and songwriting lunatic. Also in 2017 he will be permanently on the road for solo, duo and band shows. The utmost special on maestro De Jongh is that he never loses his creativity. Every show is different, even the song interpretations On top he has the gift of writing and getting hooky song-inspirations within minutes even at a gig. He retrieves his powers by enjoying nature together with charming singer and partner in crime Monique Anderson. He even continues to find the fervor for painting. His early and continuing love to the good ole sheiks of blues & rock’n- rollas, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, JerryLee Lewis, Harry Muskee and off course The Rolling Stones will be his everlasting love and inspiration. When all the old masters will jam heavenly at one time he will continue their earthly musical heritage.

By “Highway Man”, as title track in a short and long version Ralph is the Lord Of The Blues-Rock’N & Rollin’ Pandemonium by chant! It is also ever so magical and sultry by the seductive background-vocals of Lovely Van de Wetering / Patries Van Iterson& Monique. Ralph is the devilish slide guitar-slinger and he is in fervid duet-entrancement specially with his guitar-mate Maarten Ouweneel and saxophonist Arend Bouwmester. “Fine Man” is a honky tonkin’ southern celebration tune and Roel Spanjers is in the spotlight by his extraordinary piano solos. “Everywhere” is like a bewitching dream-song where the mighty Loup Garou or Mississippi Bigfoot is haunting you. It is definitely considered to be dedicated by the song-charisma to the unforgettable and iconic Willy DeVille. “Last Salute” as highway hymn is a last dynamic, brilliant, thrilling and jamming blues-rocker. A starry grand-final!

“Bemuse Me” represents the singer-/songwriter sight of Ralph. Beautiful melodies and even meditative songs manifest that Ralph can also be a calmer and peaceful artist. The cd is specially stunning because of the saxophone-wizardry by Arend. “Bemuse Me” as title-song even has funky bass and drums-grooves by Nico Heijleigers (b) and Arie Verhaar (dr.) and may inspire you and your beloved for an erotic dance. By “Still A Fool” Ralph’s chant is ever so to hoodoo you, besides his sensitive string-wizardry. On top the sax-extravagances makes it the absolute highlight of the cd. Off course Ralph cannot totally keep calm, so by “You Got To Try” he’s powering again and is the sultan of slide-guitar. The joyous “Gimme Some More” is concluding the cd. It will make your day bright from wake-up till sleep-time.

“Misty Train” features three live-songs, of which “Waist Deep” is the reason for the title “Burst Out Explosion”. DeJongh the man was ever so spontaneous and just created this tune within moments. Vow and ever so surprising! Ralph live and in ecstasy is really a hot deal. On the other spiritual songs he manifests his fingerpickin’ six-string artistry and addiction for delta-blues. “Lay My Burden Down” leads you way to the bayous of any majestic river, here Holland got the beautiful Ijssel. Swampy melodies may ecstasize you to dream of demoniac fable creatures. On “Songdust” violinist Ewa Pepper highlights her extraordinary, virtuoso solos. Beautiful & shivering the samemoment! The concluding “As I Passed” is his song for peace and like an ode to the unforgettable blues-icons in heaven. But, hey mister De Jongh, we need you still on earth, you are way too young, haha!

Hell of a great, loveable artwork and booklet featuring liner notes from Ralph, photos (specially with friends) and press-reviews. The cover of “Highwayman” has to be specially mentioned, it shows his two drivers – Leen Wander and Max Joosten (also a virtuoso harmonica-player). Leen is mostly his driver and also a great photographer. It is unbelievable how he conducts Ralph through the nites for every show safely. Leen you absolutely rock!!!

The sounds of the cd’s are modern, powerful and stunning and absolutely authentic for each song interpretation.
