聆听Stacey Kent新专辑 — 品味法式爵士情怀 - Jazz You Night  Day - JAZZ YOU NIGHT  DAY
        Stacey Kent是一个非典型美国人,能把法语唱的很入味的她在以往的专辑里就时常会穿插几首叫人难忘的法语作品。Stacey Kent却是个很典型的女人,"elegant and dainty",这种气质渗透于她的音乐元素中,象是一种温和的能量由内到外慢慢绽放却难以隐藏,甚至我觉得她的每一款新专辑封面总象是一幅奢侈品牌香水新品的海报。而这一次songbird索性走一回纯左岸路线,取材于Barbara, Paul Misraki等多首French songbook,C'Est Le Printemps如果你记性好的话会想起她曾经唱过的英文版,法语演绎多了一分浓厚。继07年那张Blue Note的Grammy入选专辑Breakfast on the Morning Tram后的又一次呈现,一转眼有三年了,感觉不出来其实是因为很多人包括我都一直在听她一张又一张的精选集。而这一回终于让大家明白,那个梦幻女人还在继续她的红舞鞋故事。来自2010年《Stacey Kent - Raconte Moi》。

        近年备受爵士乐界讚赏及乐迷拥护之女歌手 Stacey Kent 最新专辑 'Raconte-Moi...' 以法文唱出法国浪漫情怀之爵士乐曲,并重新谱上法文演绎殿堂级大师 Antonio Carlos Jobim 名曲 "Water Of March" (Les Eaux De Mars) 及法国新一代创作人 Benjamin Biolay 与 Keren Ann 之作品 "Jardin D'hiver"、"Au Coin Du Monde"。

        Stacey Kent在西元1997年发行了个人首张唱片《Close Your Eyes》之后,评论家马上以「完美结合爵士乐敏感纤细与感性世故二种特质的新声音」的溢美之词盛讚。事实上,Stacey Kent每到一个国家总是能轻易掳获所有人的心。因为她唱歌时就像在说故事,而且是用一种「邻家女孩和你诉说秘密」的姿态娓娓道来。这种近距离宛如耳语式的呢喃,是她最厉害的武器。

        Stacey Kent的另一样武器则是对各种语言的掌握能力。英文是母语无须多说,她的义大利语、西班牙语与葡萄牙语都在水準之上,法语更是流利。新专辑选择以法语演唱的原因很多,其中之一是因为她的祖父常居法国,自己也曾在那儿留学。唱片里她将许多法国香颂大师的作品做了番巡礼,作曲家Paul Misraki的小情歌《L'Étang》搭上Stacey Kent的吴噥软语,简直是绝配!而Benjamin Biolay的《Au Moin du Monde》透露著点点哀伤,令谁都心疼。Michel Jonasz的《Les Vacances au Bord de la Mer》,简单的吉他配著「看海」、「渔船」等悠哉歌词,情绪却流著一丝多愁善感,像个有心事的小女孩。带著神秘氛围的《Mi Amor》则是年轻歌手Claire Denamur的作品,同时她也是Stacey Kent的粉丝,所以将自己的作品让她来重新詮释。萨克斯风手Jim Tomlinson〈Stacey Kent的先生〉在歌曲里那段萨克斯风独奏十分销魂。

        十二首歌曲里有Stacey Kent最钟爱的法国经典香颂,也有新生代作曲家献给Stacey Kent的音乐礼物。唱片标题也下得好,《Raconte-Moi》是「告诉我…」的意思,里面的「我」,其实就是「你」,静静听著「她」说故事,这感觉真好!

Stacey Kent Biography

New York native Stacey Kent never anticipated a career in jazz music, for she was a Sarah Lawrence graduate with a degree in comparative literature. But her childhood days spent listening to the traditional beauty of Frank Sinatra and Nat "King" Cole undoubtedly influenced her. While on holiday in Europe after graduating from college, she took up singing without much formal training and never looked back.

Kent became acquainted with several musicians at Oxford in 1991 and through them she found herself participating in a jazz course at the famed Guildhall School of Music and Drama. There she also met her future husband, tenor saxophonist Jim Tomlinson, and also landed a spot in the class. Her next spot was singing with the Vile Bodies Swing Orchestra at the Ritz Hotel in London, quickly landing a role in Ian McKellen's Richard III film, playing the big-band singer. The mid-'90s were more focused on recording and in 1996, Kent inked a deal with Candid Records. A year later, the critically acclaimed Close Your Eyes was issued; Tender Trap followed in 1999. Her third LP Let Yourself Go: Celebrating Fred Astaire, which showcased popular standards, appeared in spring 2000. The ballad-oriented Dreamsville appeared the next spring. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, All Music Guide
