J. Ralph confesses to having a major cultural flashback experience while working with the stellar musical lineup he assembled to record songs for a new documentary about autism, “Wretches and Jabberers: And Stories From the Road.”
The remarkably diverse list of participants includes Norah Jones, Scarlett Johansson, Carly Simon, Devendra Banhart, Antony Hegarty, Ben Harper, Vashti Bunyan, Bob Weir, Stephen Stills and Vincent Gallo among many more.
They all signed on to be part of producer-director Gerardine Wurzberg’s film centering on a road trip undertaken by two autistic adult men.
“It was the craziest thing,” said Ralph, the New York singer and songwriter who composed scores for two previous Academy Award-winning documentaries, James Marsh’s “Man on Wire” in 2008 and Louis Psihoyos “The Cove” from last year. Ralph’s work on those projects prompted Wurzberg to seek him out to supply music for her exploration of the isolation and alienation that often accompanies autism.

Olivia Palermo will star in the new Mango campaign alongside her model boyfriend Johannes Huebl.
She told us that she and Huebl are starring in the new adverts with Scarlett Johannson and Poppy Delevingne who, she says, “I haven’t seen since the shoot so I can’t wait to see her this week” – then they ended up sitting next to each other at Matthew Williamson’s show and gave each other a huge hug.
So will the couple be featuring on Mango billboards across the country?
“I don’t know about that but I’m really pleased to have done it,” she said.
