In 1963, the conservative British government was shaken to its foundations by the Profumo Scandal. The central character in this disastrous affair was John Profumo, Britain's minister of war, who had become sexually involved with call-girl Christine Keeler, whose "sponsor" was high-priced osteopath Dr. Stephen Ward. Fancying himself a dashing international adventurer, Ward had also offered Christine to alleged Soviet spy Eugene Ivanov. Another of Ward's stable, Mandy Rice-Davies, allegedly had slept with numerous British and American luminaries. The whole sordid story, which ended with Ward's suicide and Profumo's public disgrace, was recounted with relish in director Michael Caton-Jones's Scandal, which featured John Hurt as Stephen Ward, Joanne Whalley-Kilmer as Christine Keeler, Ian McKellan as Profumo, Bridget Fonda as Mandy Rice-Davies, and Jeroen Krabbe as Ivanov. In its original form, the film was ripe enough to court an X-rating; post-production trimming enabled it to squeak by with an R.

Christine Keeler’s name is as synonymous with the sixties sexual revolution as the Pill. Having found fame and success as a model—the portrait of her naked astride a chair is iconic—her short affair with the Minister for War, John Profumo, led to his downfall and the end of Harold Macmillan’s Conservative government, and was at the heart of the social and political earthquake that followed. She became the subject of scandal, intrigue, and gossip, and was tried for perjury and briefly jailed following the death of Stephen Ward, the socialite who had introduced her to Profumo.

The Skatalites brought the sound of Jamaica to the world. At the start of the 1960s, in the space of just a couple of years Don Drummond, Tommy McCook, Jackie Mittoo, Ernest Ranglin, Johnny ‘Dizzy’ Moore, Lloyd Knibbs, Lloyd Brevett and others defined the exciting beat of ‘Ska’ as the sound of newly independent Jamaica.

If "Scandal" (1989) was not a fairly accurate recounting of Britain's John Profumo Affair (1963), the characters and events would be too weird to be considered plausible fiction. Defense Minister Profumo's attempt to refute allegations of his involvement with Christine Keeler ultimately brought down the 10 year Conservative Party government back in the mid-1960's. "Scandal recreates these events and gives the viewer a glimpse into the personalities and possible motives of the main players in this political soap opera.

Christine & The Queens is the alt-moniker of French singer/songwriter/actress Heloise Letissier and her debut album „Chaleur Humaine“ ('Human Heat') is an impressive first outing in the Listening World. Ms Letissier makes a pretty noise; an approachable and tuneful take on electro-pop which might also appeal to admirers of Imogen Heap. There are eleven songs in the set, some sung in her native tongue and others in English, so a dictionary comes in handy here and there. The album has been released as self-titled (Christine and the Queens) in the United States.

How can one account better than Rousseau himself of all that Monsieur de Sainte-Colombe has brought to the viola da gamba, whether it be at the instrumental level (adding the 7th string that gives more depth to the sonority, The silver-plated strings that allow articulated and precise play even on the bass strings), but also an important development of the technique which gives the instrument a palette of sound of a finesse and a sensibility approaching the human voice . It is thanks to these decisive contributions that a school of viola da gamba was able to develop in France, Marais, Couperin and Forqueray being the most prestigious representatives. It seems important to me to pay tribute to this musician of the shadow of whom we are all still the heirs, as his son but also Marin Marais did in their time by dedicating to him two magnificent tombs.
