专辑介绍:

重现灵魂之声《Ray》

一套记载音乐之父雷.查尔斯(Ray Charles)的传记电影《Ray》即将上映,大家都好奇著电影会有怎样一个中文译名,结果却是告诉大家,没有文字比「Ray」更具代表性,就像雷.查尔斯在乐迷心目中,从来都是独一无二的。

正当《Ray》开拍的同时,却传出雷.查尔斯 不幸病逝的消息,一代音乐之父不能亲眼见证荷里活对他作出的最后致敬,或许是种遗憾;更多的可能是我们有幸藉电影缅怀雷.查尔斯的种种。《Ray》的导演泰莱.赫福(Taylor Hackford)打从1987年首次与雷.查尔斯见面后,便开始筹备拍摄他的一生。在电影筹备初期,泰莱.赫福发现雷.查尔斯不只是一个受欢迎的歌星,更多的是他带领流行音乐的演变,反映美国普遍的生活,这是泰莱.赫福特始料未及的。他曾经强调《Ray》没有说教的味道,只是藉雷.查尔斯看到美国文化的巨变、看到种族的隔离、看到一位黑人歌手进入白人文化,带领音乐演变的过程。

电影找来曾经演出《Collateral同行杀机》(Collateral)的占美.霍士(Jamie Foxx)来饰演雷.查尔斯,占美.霍士为了要演活角色,事前做了大量的準备功夫,不惜减肥以贴近角色的外型﹔观看关於失明人士的录影带,甚至向曾经在《女人香》(Scent of a Woman)中扮演过失明人士的阿尔.柏仙奴(Al Pacino)取经;在音乐上,他努力揣摩雷.查尔斯沉醉在音乐的感觉,以几乎无瑕的口形配上雷.查尔斯的原声演唱,让观眾在他身上看到了音乐大师的影子。

在同名的电影原声大碟【Ray】里,收录了16首从1953年令人心醉神迷的〈Mess Around〉到70年代中期的〈Georgia On My Mind〉,精选了蓝调、爵士、福音、乡村等不同类型的音乐,〈What'd I Say〉、〈You Don't Know Me〉、〈Hallelujah I Love Her So〉等。

要欣赏原声大碟里的音乐,首先要认识雷.查尔斯这位传奇人物。被誉为骚灵音乐之父的雷.查尔斯,早在出道初期,创新混合了R&B以及黑人福音音乐,成就了骚灵音乐的诞生。由於雷.查尔斯的音乐领域广泛,他以天赋的音乐才华结合了各种音乐种类,当中包括爵士乐、R&B、摇滚乐、福音音乐及乡谣音乐等种类,为美国音乐重新定位,注入新元素,彻底改变美国音乐的历史。

无论是戏里戏内都教人留下深刻印象的〈Georgia on My Mind〉,取自【Genius Hits the Road】(1960)和【Ray Charles Live in Japan】(1976)。这首蓝调歌曲是Ray第一支榜首单曲,你可以听到灵魂乐与节奏蓝调之间的微妙关係,作品更在1979年成为乔治亚州的州歌。以轻快节奏、用脚轻敲的〈Mess Around〉是一首有趣的歌曲,令人忍不住再三回味﹔走相同路线的〈I Got A Woman〉,更是他接受音乐环境薰陶的最佳写照,结合了节奏蓝调与福音感觉的灵魂乐嗓音,后来被乐界视为首支灵魂乐作品,是第一首真正的美国黑人歌曲。

现场收录的乡村经典〈You Don't Know Me〉令人感受乡村乐与灵魂乐之间流动的福音音乐感觉,同时表现出Ray Charles非常个人化的灵魂乐风格以及对音乐的穿透力。〈I Can't Stop Loving You〉是雷.查尔斯另一调子,用钢琴弹奏又别有一番味道。活泼积极的〈Hallelujah I Love Her So〉集灵魂与福音於一体,是骚灵音乐的一大代表。有人认为听Ray Charles的音乐,就像在听灵魂在唱歌一样,而这种音乐上的独有特质影响了披头四(The Beatles)、史提夫.汪达(Stevie Wonder)、乔库克(Joe Cocke)以及无数的灵魂乐手。

细听之下,不难发现雷.查尔斯的作品中已无所谓的音乐类型,甚至跨越了音乐的类型。无主流与非主流,经典和流行,前卫和保守之分。所有的歌曲一经他的演绎,顿成他的灵魂。他将爵士、蓝调、骚灵、乡村、流行等的音乐风格融为一体,变成属於雷.查尔斯的音乐。在R&B氾滥的时代,雷.查尔斯的离开,正正是缺乏灵魂的时代。

出生於乔治亚州的雷.查尔斯,7岁因青光眼致双目失明,后来母亲送他入盲哑学校接受钢琴及速读训练,从此跟音乐结下不解缘。自1948年开始,他在美国各地巡迴演唱。60年代,在音乐上获得突破,成功将乡村、爵士、管弦和教会音乐完美地结合在一起,创造出一种别人无法模仿的独特个人风格,这种优美音乐逐渐获得了世界音乐界的认可,他也被看作是一个音乐上的奇迹。在1965年雷.查尔斯因持有海洛英被捕而入狱一年。

雷.查尔斯一共获得13次格林美奖,并於1987年获颁格林美终身成就奖,以表扬他对乐坛的贡献。直至去年5月,他在洛杉磯举办了自己一生中第一万场的演唱会。除了在音乐上,雷.查尔斯也是一位坚持反对种族隔离制度的斗士。他支持和提携年轻的黑人音乐家,捍卫自己和其他黑人的权利。

Unlike the soundtrack for his Jerry Lee Lewis biopic Great Balls of Fire, director Taylor Hackford didn't have Ray Charles re-record his classic songs for the soundtrack of his Charles biopic, Ray! Instead, he selected 17 songs of Ray at his '50s and '60s peak, skillfully balancing selections from both Atlantic and ABC to create a surprisingly successful and thoroughly entertaining overview. While 17 tracks can't contain all of his best work -- there's not too much of his jazz playing and just a little bit of his country-soul recordings, plus singles from "Lonely Avenue" to "Busted" are MIA -- it does hit all of the best-known songs ("I Got a Woman," "(Night Time Is) The Right Time," "Georgia on My Mind," "Hit the Road Jack"), mixing in a couple of relatively obscure tracks (such as barnburning, transcendent early R&B cut "Mess Around") and adding excellent live renditions of such staples as "Hallelujah I Love Her So," "What'd I Say," and "I Can't Stop Loving You." The end result may not be definitive, but it surely is a good introduction that will no doubt whet the appetites of listeners who were turned onto Ray Charles because of Hackford's film. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide

Soul and R&B legend Ray Charles may not have lived to see the success of Hollywood's ultimate tribute to him, but director Taylor Hackford's biopic (featuring a landmark performance by Jamie Foxx as the musical legend) will further burnish his legacy as one of the cornerstones of contemporary American music. Though it stretches from 1953's ecstatic, proto-soul "Mess Around" to a sublime, bluesy live take of "Georgia on My Mind" recorded in Japan in the mid-'70s, this 17-track song-score can only be an inviting appetizer to the singer's epochal body of work. Charles's artistry may have virtually defined soul music, yet it also triumphed in genres as far afield as blues ("Nightime Is the Right Time") and country ("I Can't Stop Loving You," "Bye Bye Love") during the '60s, the impossibly rich era from which the bulk of this soundtrack is culled. Crucially, fully a third of the cuts here are live recordings--including electrifying 1965 performances of "What'd I Say," "You Don't Know Me," and "Hallelujah I Love Her So" hand-picked for the film by Charles himself--the forum in which the singer consistently operated on a whole other artistic plateau from mere mortals. -- Jerry McCulley

引用
2004年6月10号,Ray Charles因肝病的并发癥病逝于加州,享年73岁。灵魂乐教母Aretha Franklin闻讯后,感慨的表示,‘一个伟大的灵魂将受到永远的爱戴…他有一副让人终身难忘的歌声。’出生於乔治亚州的Ray Charles,6岁时因发生青光眼症状导致终身失明,童年在一个乡村、蓝调、灵魂、爵士、Big Band音乐五味杂陈的音乐环境下长大,1954年,他所灌唱的歌曲“I Got A Woman”无疑就是他接受音乐环境薰陶的最佳写照,而这首歌后来就被乐界视为首支灵魂乐作品,1979年,他所灌唱的老歌“Georgia On My Mind”被选为乔治亚州的州歌,1986年入选摇滚名人堂,1988年获颁葛莱美奖的终身成就奖,表彰这位灵魂之父在他的演唱中将灵魂乐的真实本质全然的个人化,2004年,洛杉磯宣佈将Ray Charles的录音室规划为历史地标。无论是百事可乐广告片中那位坐在钢琴边说出“you've got the right one baby, uh-huh!”的老顽童,还是在援非饥荒义唱曲“We Are The World”中与工人皇帝Bruce Springsteen神情专注的对唱,或是他赢得个人第12座葛莱美奖时的得奖作品“A Song For You”,Ray Charles歌声中的灵魂本质永远是那么触动人心,他的歌声啟发了披头四、史提夫汪达、乔库克以及无数的灵魂乐手,简单的说,听Ray Charles的音乐,就像是听一个心无杂念的灵魂在唱歌一样,世上再也没有什么比这样的感觉更动人的了!
  “打从我出生,音乐就在我的内在滋长,音乐就是我身体的一部分,像是我的血液一样。”Ray Charles曾在自传中作出如此的表述,而这样的精神一直贯穿到他生前的最后一张遗作“Genius Love Company”,藉由这一张与多位不同世代、不同类型音乐领域歌手合作的作品,我们更可以听见Ray Charles非常个人化的灵魂乐神采的穿透力。面对此张专辑中合作的歌手总计赢得过79座葛莱美奖的惊人资历,Ray Charles的神奇唱功依然是那么生动、自然,根本难以界定所首歌的类型,譬如在与Norah Jones、Diana Krall分别合作重唱乡村经典作“Here We Go Again”、“You Don't Know Me”时,你会听到在乡村乐与灵魂乐之间流动的福音音乐感觉;而在与蓝调国宝B. B. King合作的“Sinner's Prayer”中,你可以听到Ray Charles的钢琴与B. B. King的吉他Lucille精采的乐器对话;跟著自己所尊敬的音乐人Nat King Cole的女儿Natalie Cole合唱“Fever”时,你可以听到灵魂乐与节奏蓝调之间的微妙关係;当Ray Charles分别与创作歌手Elton John、James Taylor灌录他们的创作曲“Sorry Seem To Be The Hardest Word”、“Sweet Potato Pie”时,你可以在舒服悦耳的歌声中,感受到Ray Charles的知音情怀。
  “Genius Loves Company”让我们感受到--流行音乐没有所谓的跨界与否的问题,完全在乎于你有没有唱出你的灵魂罢了!

雷·查尔斯曾经荣获过13项格莱美大奖,被称作“灵魂乐之父”,著名《滚石/Rolling Stone》杂誌将他评选为历史上最伟大的10位音乐家之一。他6岁时因发生青光眼症状导致终身失明,对他来说,没有色彩的世界裏更多的是音乐的陪伴,他说:“打从我出生,音乐就在我的内心滋长,音乐就是我身体的一部分,就像是我的血液一样。”从童年时代他就深受乡村、蓝调、灵魂、爵士、Big Band等不同风格的音乐影响。
  1954年,雷·查尔斯录制的歌曲《I Got A Woman》被认为是首支灵魂乐作品,1979年,他的老歌《Georgia On My Mind》被选为乔治亚州的州歌,1986年他入选摇滚名人堂,1988年获颁格莱美终身成就奖,2004年,洛杉磯宣佈将雷·查尔斯的录音室规划为历史地标。雷·查尔斯被人称为当代最伟大的流行艺人、开创灵魂乐的先锋,歌迷认为他的音乐代表了最真实的原味美国音乐,他的嗓音融合了节奏蓝调与福音感觉,显得无比虔诚。今年6月,雷·查尔斯因肝病的并发癥病逝于加州,享年73岁。
  《Genius Loves Company(真情伙伴)》是雷·查尔斯生前的最后一个作品,也是他首次录制完全与其他歌手对唱的唱片,他倾注毕生心血完成了这张经典之作,想不到竟成为绝响。与他对唱的歌手也都是乐坛的顶级人物,包括诺拉·琼斯、艾尔顿·约翰、麦克·麦当劳、B.B.King、黛安娜·克瑞儿等12位巨星。据说他们获得过的格莱美大奖加起来已经达到79个!这的确是一个极梦幻的组合。
  唱片中,雷·查尔斯分别与诺拉·琼斯对唱了《这又发生了》、与艾尔顿·约翰对唱了《歉意难表》等歌曲。和麦克·麦当劳对唱的《Hey Girl》不是在录音室录制的,而是他们与一个63人交响乐团合作的现场演出。如同雷·查尔斯在生前制作这张专辑时所说的:所有参予这张专辑的歌手们,分别赋予了每一首对唱歌曲他所想要的全新生命与独特的魅力。

这是RAY CHARLES的人物传记电影的OST专辑.........

If you saw the movie, you know by now that Ray recorded for two record companies: Atlantic and ABC Paramaount. Usually, when you buy any 'greatest hits' compilation of Ray, is either from the Atlantic sides or the ABC sides, never both. But for this CD, you get great sides from both companies. Everything here is classic. maybe too many live tracks, but as a one CD compilation to get to know Ray Charles, you can hardly find a better one. If you saw the movie, you'll remember the scenes were these tracks were played. Highly recommended if you dont have any of the Ray Charles classic recordings of the 50's & 60's.


Man, how Ray Charles could belt out a tune! He made it seem so easy; and the proof of that is on this CD. "Georgia On My Mind" is one of my favorite Ray Charles songs; this studio cut of Ray singing this is magnificent and very moving. No wonder it's Georgia's state song!

This CD starts out with the mischievous "Mess Around;" this song is so much fun you may replay it a few times before you even get to the rest of the CD! Hehehe! "I've Got A Woman" continues in this same way. There are some terrific live recordings here, too! Ray sings "Hallelujah I Love Her So," "What'd I Say," "You Don't Know Me," "Let The Good Times Roll," and "Georgia On My Mind" all live! I only wish I had been at one of these concerts; the electricity that so clearly is there in his performance would have blown my mind!

I especially liked the somewhat different arrangements on "You Don't Know Me" and "Let The Good Times Roll!" Very well done! The live recording of "Georgia On My Mind" is indeed very bluesy; a nice twist to a great song that is also here from a studio recording session Ray did.

Ray had a hand in the production of this film before he died; therefore this CD is also an excellent introduction or perhaps a single CD miniature compilation of some of his most famous songs. This is also a wonderful way for us all to remember the great Mr. Charles; since his performances here are dynamic, exciting, fresh and straight from the heart.

The CD comes with liner notes by Taylor Hackford. Hackford both directed and co-wrote the film "Ray."

In short, GET THIS CD! and help celebrate the life and art of the great Mr. Ray Charles! You won't regret this CD purchase! And while you're at it, why not see the movie, too? GRIN
