专辑介绍:

比利时爵士口琴国宝Toots Thielemans,是当今最重要的爵士口琴乐手之一。

专辑涵盖了Toot 早期1946 到世纪初2001年 一些不曾发布过的录音。

1922年生於比利时布鲁塞尔的Toots Thielemans,原名Jean Thielemans。三岁时即会弹奏手风琴,或许这也影响了他日后口琴的吹奏音色。虽然Toots以口琴著称於世,但其实他一开始是以一把跟别人打赌赢来的吉他,开始摸索爵士乐的大千世界。在Toots的早年成长的岁月中,正是二次世界大战前德军佔领比利时的时期,当时的Toots经常在小酒馆中演奏爵士吉他,以Django Reinhardt吉他弹奏风格著称,并以口哨声搭配吉他乐句形成个人特色,后经摇摆乐之王Benny Goodman发掘而崭露头角。或许是为了表演需要,当时Toots想加入一项新的乐器来丰富表演内容,这项乐器就是口琴,但当时的团员中谁会吹奏爵士口琴呢?答案是「没有」。於是Toots开始摸索口琴的技巧与吹奏的方式,靠著自己的爵士乐基础,与一次又一次的练习与尝试,没想到Toots的口琴表演受到热烈的欢迎,之后Toots就以这样的表演形式逐渐受到爵士乐界的重视,甚至日后让Toots成为大师地位的原因就是因为爵士口琴,这是大概是Toots从未想到的吧,甚至有些乐迷还忘了Toots原本是位爵士吉他乐手呢!

由於时代的背景与命运的安排,Toots接触了许多流落欧洲的美国音乐家,也令他学会了纯正的爵士腔调。逐渐地,越来越多的美国音乐家到欧洲巡迴的第一站,便是到布鲁塞尔看Toots的演奏,而摇摆乐之王Benny Goodman的欧洲巡迴,也邀请他为专属团员。就这样,Toots一路由美国音乐家提携回美国大陆,他甚至参加了咆勃宗师Charlie Parker的费城明星音乐会,并於大西洋两岸穿梭演奏,并受到国际上的瞩目。因应繁忙的音乐生涯,Toots於1952年移民美国,但仍於每年固定回故乡比利时及欧洲大陆参与爵士盛会。1962年,Toots所创作的一首爵士华尔滋《Bluesette》,在推出之后风靡全球,此首旋律动人的创作,还是以Toots的另一项绝技---口哨与吉他即兴线条同步所演奏的!在美国音乐教父级人物Quincy Jones的推波助澜之下,Toots的口琴声响,不但传达到世界每一角落,他也开始录制更多的电视、电影主题曲及配乐,时至今日,我们根本可以说:大家日常生活中耳边听到的口琴声,大概十有八九都是他演奏的了!


在爵士口琴界享有盛名的Toots Thielemans,与其合作过之大师不计其数,包括Charlie Parker、George Sharing、Bill Evans、Miles Davis、Quincy Jones、Jaco Pastorius、 Ella Fitzgerald、Shirley Horn等,许多爵士乐手都莫不期待能与他有合作的机会,或只求能亲耳听见他出神入化的演奏。美国权威爵士评论杂誌「Down Beat」的年度票选,Toots Thielemans年年蝉联爵士稀有乐器(miscellaneous instrument)冠军宝座,这种荣耀已经持续至今三十年有餘了,即便是一生荣耀加诸於身,Toots Thielemans仍无法顺利进入爵士名人堂(Hall of Fame),或许是因为Toots的演奏乐器并非爵士乐的主流乐器吧!但不管如何,以爵士乐与口琴爱好者的观点来看,Toots Thielemans老早就具备了进入爵士名人堂(Hall of Fame)的优先资格,或许要等到美国人把他们自己的爵士英雄都颁光了之后,Toots才能被保送上垒吧?不过,Toots Thielemans的音乐生涯,已经是全世界都无庸置疑的终身成就,他所累积的热烈掌声,比什么奖都要来得有意义多了!

对於玩口琴的朋友,尤其是爱好爵士乐的口琴朋友,对於Toots Thielemans一生执卓与成就,是非常尊敬与仰望的。而Toots也是一位唱片产量非常多的乐手,我个人就收集了许多张Toots的CD,虽然不是每张都是经典,但是对於玩口琴与爱爵士乐的我,Toots的CD却是我珍藏的宝贝之一。

By Jeff Tamarkin

A double-CD collection of rarities by harmonica legend Toots Thielemans will be released March 27 by Naxos of America and Out of the Blue Records. The set begins with Thielemans’ earliest recording as a soloist from 1946 and ends with a duet recorded in 2001.

Producer Cees Schrama selected all 38 tracks, some of which, including the 1946 recording, initially made as a soundtrack for a cartoon, have never been previously issued anywhere. Others, among them tracks featuring pianist George Shearing, were issued as singles only.

This may well contain the best Toots Thielemans you never heard. A stunning collection of both rare and great music, starting with his earliest recording as a soloist and ending with a memorable duet in the new millennium. Producers Cees Schrama, a personalfriend, selected all these treasures, looking for recordings that follow Toots' long and impressive career and are hard or simply impossible to purchase on CD. Some of the tracks for example the 1946 recording, initially made as a soundtrack for a cartoon were never issued anywhere. Others among them the tracks with George Shearing were issued on singles and then disappeared. Toots started out as a Django-inspired guitarist but became instantly recognizable when he started whistling along with his guitar improvisations. More fame came when listeners, musicians and producers discovered he was turning the chromatic harmonica into a serious jazz instrument. Thielemans, nowadays, is almost universally loved as a harmonica-star. It took a while, though, before he became a household name.

Review


代码
If the new double CD collection of rare tracks from harmonica virtuoso Toots Thielemans demonstrates anything with clarity, it is that this man could play in 1946, the year of the first recordings, and can still play in 2001, the year of the last track. I'm not sure that Thielemans aficionados need such a demonstration, but anyone who might have had the idea that the harmonica was little more than a toy needs to hear what this man can do with it. Think what Charlie Parker could do with the sax or Miles Davis with the trumpet – this is what Thielemans, at his best, can do with his harmonica.

Yesterday & Today is a set of 37 previously unavailable recordings selected by friend and fellow musician Cees Schrama from over Thielemans' lengthy career. They feature the musician not only on harmonica, but also guitar, as well as some of his trademark whistling. He plays with everything from trios to big bands. He also plays solo and even sings.

He plays with lesser known European musicians; some of them the biggest names in American jazz. He plays blues, swing, and plenty of modern jazz. There may be some pieces that seem little more than precious bagatelles, but there's hardly a track that doesn't have something to make you smile. More than enough exhibit real power, giving a generous sample of Thielemans' genius.

If you can tell something about a musician by the company he keeps, here are just a few of the names that appear on the album: George Shearing, J.J. Johnson, McCoy Tyner, Cal Tjader, Bucky Pizzarelli, Grady Tate, Clark Terry, Dick Hyman. I could go on, but you get the point. These are all stars, and Thielemans is at home with the best of them. Many of the album's highlights come from the 1960's, when he was showing these guys his stuff. "Lullaby of Jazzland" is a 1964 recording with Johnson, Tyner, Richard Davis, and drummer Elvin Jones and has Thielemans playing some dynamic guitar. A 1965 recording of "Soul Bird" has him working with Latin American rhythms on the harmonica along with Terry, Tate, Bob Brookmeyer, Mel Lewis and Gary McFarland among others. "Please Send Me Someone to Love" is blues, hot and steamy with Pizzarelli and Dick Hyman on the organ.



His early recordings aren't bad either. The first CD opens with "Jazz Band Ball" a big band swinger from Brussels in 1946. "Crazy Bop" and "It Had to Be 'Bird'" are from 1949 and have Thielemans working on the guitar in a modern mode with a trio in Paris. There are a couple of short boogies from 1950 and '51, where he plays with quotations from other pieces. They make for an interesting comparison with some of his later work. "Dynamite," with Dick Hyman and Harry Reser on banjo, is almost a novelty number. "Early Autumn" recorded with a larger ensemble shows him in a mellow mood.

Aside from his own playful vocal on "The Slickest Man in Town," there is a smoking Shirley Horn vocal on "Someone to Watch Over Me" from 1991 on which he adds some elegant harmonica accents with remarkable restraint. He seems a lot more prominent on the earlier accompaniment to Elis Regina's vocal with the Orchestra Elis Cinco on "Barquinho." Other examples of his later playing include a 1995 recording of "Circle of Smiles" (the main theme of a popular Dutch television detective series) and the album's concluding piece, "What a Wonderful World," recorded in 2001.

These are just some of the gems that await the listener on Yesterday & Today. Whether it's his rollicking whistling accompaniment on "Fritiof Anderssons Paradmarsch," the haunting harmonica from "That Misty Red Animal," the illuminating solo guitar version of Duke Ellington's "Black Beauty," or his laid-back take on "Bye Bye Blackbird," this is a collection that has more than just variety and quantity. This is collection that has quality.
