专辑介绍:

★AMG 4星评价
*全球媒体齐声讚扬、廿一世纪最畅销的爵士美声女伶珍梦海展露真我深情动人新作
*名家制作、音响发烧片等级录音完美,完美呈现珍梦海如梦似幻深邃优雅极致歌嗓

以梦幻美声攫获无数人心的当代最佳爵士名伶珍梦海,她宛若平地一声雷般崛起於乐坛的过程早已是廿一世纪最为人津津乐道的另一则传奇:生长於人文薈萃的大都会纽约,自小即接受严谨正规表演艺术训练的珍梦海早於高中时期便拥有媲美职业级歌手的超卓演唱技巧,1998年芳龄仅21岁的她一路过关斩将挺进瑟隆尼斯孟克国际爵士大赛的最终回合,超龄细腻的情感表现及甜美姣好的面容迅即引起广大乐迷关注,2000年起在万眾瞩目下正式踏入流行乐坛连年发行个人专辑各界好评不断,不仅多次获葛莱美奖提名,同时也是告示牌畅销排行榜上的常胜军,在美国重量级爵士杂誌Downbeat、日本Swing Journal等全球指标性音乐杂誌的各项推荐票选中也经常位列前茅,时代杂誌更曾经以「匯聚了所有女伶出眾秀逸特质於一身的全方位歌唱家」的绝美之辞予以崇高无上肯定,珍梦海跃居「新世代流行爵士天后」的佳名从此不脛而走。

继珍梦海前一张爵士生涯的十週年里程碑纪念作「纯真情海」(Home)推出之后,历经近三年细腻酝酿及筹画,由曾和韦恩‧萧特、派特‧麦席尼等名家合作的金奖制作人吉尔‧戈尔茨坦担纲制作的2013全新个人专辑「芳心情海」,所收录的12首曲目全数皆为珍梦海亲自悉心挑选对其别具深刻意义的歌曲,「现在我所演唱的每一字、詮释的每一句,都是反映出最真实的自我…..尤其在音乐圈里待了这么长的时间、巡迴演出了这么多年,现在正是将内在的我全然释放、让精神回归自由在音符中无限开展的最佳时机。」她对新作下了如斯注解!对於她这样的演唱者而言,如何在字句中完整传达她对音乐、家庭与周遭世界的爱及热情,才是其最首要关切的事情,因此选择的歌曲无论是源自摇滚乐经典或电视节目主题曲,抑或是詮释的方式是否符合正统爵士都不是最紧要的,因为歌词才是根本所在,亦才是精髓所在。「刚出道的那几年,我总是迫切地想要展现自己对音乐的掌控能力,不断地即兴、挑战高难度的歌曲….然而随著经历了结婚、生子等不同的人生阶段,我愈发能够明瞭语言文字深入人心的力量,过去学会的那些技巧也已经自然而然成为我演唱中的一部分,帮助我去詮释歌词中深刻蕴含的细腻情感!」故从珍梦海於本辑的缕缕自陈里,愈见其洗鍊铅华的成熟大度,透过对辞藻的细细咀嚼,再加上动人心脾的天籟声线,在最适切的氛围倾吐出她对所演绎歌曲的爱恋!

“Until It’s Time For You To Go”是廿0世纪最著名的美国原住民女歌手芭菲‧圣玛丽经常为人传颂的经典创作,有别於民谣版原曲中苍茫无际的旷野景象,在本辑里改以幽微悵然的手风琴声揭开序幕,柔缓的大提琴伴随而至平添愁绪,在宛若探戈节奏的慢舞迴旋间,珍梦海用其独树一帜带有古典色彩的圣洁优雅吟唱温柔撩动听者心弦,感人至深。「这本是一首美丽的情歌,但它的歌词令我回想起孩子长大成人的那一天,你将会发觉他已经不再是依偎著妳的那个小男孩,纵然有百般不舍留恋也只能放手他去的那股悲喜交集复杂心情,录完这首歌后有好几天我仍然感觉自己被重重迷雾围绕,久久难以平复…」也因此可听闻珍梦海的歌声不时闪耀著慈爱的天光,并随著乐句铺陈能更形璀璨!

“Depende De Nos”一曲出自当代巴西作曲大师伊凡‧林斯的作品,珍梦海特别以葡萄牙语演唱献致崇敬之意,「拉丁音乐影响、佔据了我生命中很大的一部分,所以我总是尽可能地保留原文歌词,这是出自对作词作曲者的尊重。」珍梦海是如此说道。在犹如置身热带岛屿凉风徐徐吹拂的悠扬乐声中,珍梦海温婉细致的吐句呢喃也随之自然流泄飘扬,后段愈发轻快的节奏铺陈与和谐盎然的合声带领著听者飞昇青空,俯瞰碧海,体验前所未有的自由愜意。

“Little Man You’ve Had A Busy Day”原曲中查特‧贝克忧愁四溢的小号悲鸣曾经深植人心,珍梦海的演绎字句间却尽数转化为对至亲家人的关怀与呵护,收放自如的唱腔展现与梦境般唯美的编曲手法让这首枕边夜曲成为抚慰躯体疲惫及疗癒心灵创伤的最佳良药。

“Two Lonely People”原是钢琴诗人比尔‧伊文斯的名作,珍梦海刻意将全曲节奏放至极缓,大多数时间独留电钢琴清冷的音色在空气间迴盪来去,更能突显人声中的阴鬱伤感,末段舍歌词仅用深沈有力的哼吟将孤寂心境淋漓尽致的展现尤其令人惊豔,却也让人心为之黯然纠结。

“A Gente Merece Ser Feliz”是巴西作曲家伊凡‧林斯的另一首作品,熟悉的BOSSA NOVA节拍欢快引领全曲行进,音色圆润的长笛则适时帮衬烘托明亮氛围,珍梦海同样以葡萄牙语演唱,精準传达歌词中「要保有希望、我们都值得成为快乐的人」鼓舞人心的力量。

在个人专辑中重新詮释披头四的作品是珍梦海长年以来的心愿,也因此将“Golden Slumbers / The Long And Winding Road”这两首原本并不相连的抒情曲结合则是出自乐团鼓手也是其夫婿瑞克‧蒙塔尔巴诺的巧思,「一首是摇篮曲,一首是离别歌,摆放在一起后却产生了更深沈的意义。」珍梦海以静謐深邃的美声为全曲披覆上灰濛迷离的外衣,也为听者增添无垠的想像空间。

“Night Night Stars”是珍梦海多年来首度收录的全个人创作,歌词灵感源自某夜开车接送两岁大的儿子时他的童言童语,雋永质朴的钢琴琴音伴随舒缓感性的歌声一笔一画勾勒出浩瀚星空美景,既平静且祥和。

耳熟能详的儿童电视节目「芝麻街」主题曲“Sing”在珍梦海与制作人的创意改造下,呈现同样洋溢轻盈欢愉气息、听觉体验却截然不同的BOSSA NOVA版本,恬静自在的吉他拨弦与通透清澈的打击器乐贯穿全曲,珍梦海清新明亮的音色则像是涓涓细泉沁人心脾,餘韵裊裊不绝於耳,令人忘却了俗世一切烦恼尘嚣…

review
[-] by Matt Collar

A technically proficient singer with a distinctive style that straddles the line between Ella Fitzgerald's extroverted, loosely swinging approach and Linda Eder's more restrained Broadway and cabaret style, Jane Monheit is a virtuoso. One minute she's dazzling you with her resonant bebop-ready chops and the next she's making you cry with a single verse of a ballad. On her ninth studio album, 2013's Heart of the Matter, Monheit brings all of her gifts to bear on a set of mature, heartfelt songs that rank among her best. The album also works as a companion piece to 2009's The Lovers, the Dreamers and Me. With that album, Monheit celebrated such milestones as the birth of her son Jack and turning 30. She then followed up with 2010's equally as compelling if more swinging and straight-ahead jazz-sounding Home. Heart of the Matter, with its ruminations on motherhood and fidelity, returns Monheit to the more intimate, contemporary pop sound of The Lovers, the Dreamers and Me. Working with producer/arranger Gil Goldstein (who also adds his lyrical accordion sound to several tracks) and her usual rhythm section of drummer Rick Montalbano (her husband), pianist Michael Kanan, and bassist Neal Miner, Monheit has crafted a sumptuous, immaculately arranged album that once again shines a light on her immense vocal talent. Whether she's framed by a lush orchestral backing on the bossa nova "Depende de Nós" or a spare electric piano and flute arrangement on "Two Lonely People," Heart of the Matter finds Monheit nestled deep into the pocket of her own cross-genre sound, and it's a warm place to be.

Jane Monheit’s “Heart of the Matter” – Los Angeles jazz CD review and interview
By Melissa Berry

Jane Monheit 3

“Everything I’m singing now is a reflection of my truest self…”

That’s Jazz vocalist Jane Monheit’s description of her newest jazz CD, The Heart of the Matter. In a recent interview with Ms. Monheit about this, her 11th CD release, it became evident that her statement is more than true; it is an absolute. Indeed, The Heart of the Matter covers body and soul. If combining the definition of ‘matter’ as being a subject of writing, and then adding the subject of which a physical object is composed, then this album is all this and then some.

Tapping into her roots as a jazz musician, The Heart of the Matter has a palpability created by Ms. Monheit’s love and enthusiasm for music, family, and the world around her. Her intensity about this subject was a large part of our conversation; it’s not just reserved for the stage or her recordings.

Listening to this album before reading anything about it, I formed my own impressions of the selections and her interpretations. Then, after reading the press releases and speaking with Monheit, it became easy to understand why this jazz album succeeds. Primarily, it’s all about lyrics, lyrics, and more lyrics. In fact, our conversation kept returning to her lyrics. Her myriad intentions, interpretations, and results lie their core. It’s this vision and inspiration that fuels the imagination of her listeners by creating images for their own interpretation.

About the artist:

Jane Monheit is critically-acclaimed Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist. Her 11 CDs represent a broad spectrum of her repertoire, from well-known standards, Brazilian and contemporary music, to original compositions.

Among her thoughtful and oh-so-personal choices for The Heart of the Matter are the songs that represent her passion for Brazilian music, with two selections written by Ivan Lin. Combining Golden Slumbers with the classic tune The Long and Winding Road was the inspiration of her husband, Rick Montalbano. Regarding the pairing of these two songs, written by The Beatles, Ms. Monheit explains, “Taken together, the meaning becomes deeper than that of just a lullaby or a break-up song. I tend to go for darker interpretations, but it’s nice when it’s left a bit open for the listener to find their own meaning as well.” I did just that with several of the songs.

Jane-Monheit-The-Heart-Of-The-Matter-Cover

Upon listening to a favorite of mine for many years, Until It’s Time for You to Go by Buffy Sainte-Marie, the uniqueness and interpretation of Ms. Monheit’s version took it someplace entirely different than the traditional. Monheit’s version transports this lovely tune beyond its 60s origin to a Parisian cafe. Opening with the throbbing drone of an accordion that quickly adds a cello and then her voice, Monheit transforms it into something reminiscent of 21st Century Edith Piaf.

When I mentioned this personal impression, Monheit seemed surprised to learn that the song was thought of in two such different ways. She imagined a carnival at closing time, not wanting to leave for a number of possibilities—creating a very different scenario. She revealed it also holds a special meaning for her as she watches her young son growing up.

All of this magnificence is achieved with the collaboration with Grammy Award winning Gil Goldstein as producer and arranger. Having worked in 2009 with Monheit on The Lovers, The Dreamers, and Me, Goldstein’s arrangements are wonderfully unique, yet unpretentious in supporting the concept of the storytelling of this album. One can’t help but notice the ornate arrangements, but only as an enhancing factor of the whole musical work.

With a choice of material from the past, the present (Monheit’s own original Night, Night Moon) and interpretations looking towards the future, The Heart of the Matter is meant to be listened to over and over again since each time will bring something new.

The Heart of the Matter has an April 16, 2013 release date and is available now on Amazon for advance orders.
