专辑介绍:

传奇爵士黑人女天后:Roberta Flack


经典, 文雅 , 温柔、老练这些词都不足以形容RobertaFlack这位20世纪美国传奇性黑人女歌手的特殊嗓音。RobertaFlack1939年出生於美国一个教会风琴师家庭(想当星爸星妈吗?那就找份和教会有关的工作吧!)。从小学习钢琴,并且获得了霍华德大学的奖学金。从学校毕业之后,RobertaFlack被著名爵士音乐家Les McCann发掘并推荐给了Atlantic唱片公司。在Atlantic发行的第一、二张专辑虽然获得评论界的一致好评,但是在商业成绩上并无过人之出,也没有创造畅销单曲。但随著被誉为英国民歌之父的EwanMacColl 在戏剧[Misty for Me]中翻唱RobertaFlack第一张专辑中的歌曲[The First Time Ever I Saw YourFace],这首歌曲与Roberta迅速窜红,单曲也在美国排行榜上佔据了六周的冠军,成为当年最热门的歌曲。更在次年的Grammy中获得年度单曲奖和年度最佳歌曲两项大奖。

紧接著,Roberta发行了这张名为[Killing MeSoftly]的专辑,专辑中的同名单曲[Killing me softly with thissong]在排行榜榜首的位置停留了5周。一时间RobertaFlack人气无双,成为美国家喻户晓的超级巨星。这首歌曲也被我们传唱至今,成为不朽名曲之一。并且使Roberta再次获得了Grammy年度最佳单曲和最佳流行女歌手两项大奖。
不光如此,RobertaFlack继续著她传奇般的演唱生涯。她与她在霍华德大学的同学DonnyHathaway组成的二重唱组合也创在了[Where Is theLove]这样的畅销金曲。1974年,她的作品[Feel Like Makin'Love]又登上了排行榜的首位。

1979年,老搭档Donny Hathaway自杀,但是这一打击并没有击垮RobertaFlack,她又与Peabo Bryson合作,创造了又一首传唱至今的名曲[Tonight,I Celebrate My Love]
RobertaFlack的曲风为带有流行色彩的「轻柔爵士」,嗓音厚实,略带沙哑,高亢嘹亮,中气十足,同时也蕴藏多变的真假声技巧。现在,RobertaFlack虽然隐退歌坛,但像Madonna、WhitneyHouston等后生巨星,均曾经拜她为师,学习唱功。她也会应邀偶然出现在白宫,为总统以及国宾表演。

Roberta Flack (born February 10, 1939) is an American singer, songwriter, and musician who is notable for jazz, soul, R&B, and folk music. Roberta Flack is best known for her Hot 100 #1 singles “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”, “Killing Me Softly with His Song” and “Feel Like Makin’ Love”, as well as “Where Is the Love” and “The Closer I Get to You”, two of her many duets with Donny Hathaway. “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” won the 1973 Grammy Record of the Year and “Killing Me Softly with His Song” won the same award at the Grammy Awards of 1974. She and U2 are the only artists to win the award in consecutive years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sumptuous voice, pop light on the horizon, though December 29, 2003

Format:Audio CD
Roberta Flack's voice is one of the treasures of black music. She blends folk, jazz, and R&B into a lovely sound that melds sophistication and soul. In many ways, Roberta Flack has had the same predicament that Nina Simone and other R&B artists have had. She can sing jazz and has some piano ability [not as much as Simone] and crafts songs. Yet Simone and Flack went down the opposite paths. Modest chart success empowered Simone to be an utterly uncompromising artist. Major chart success leads Flack to increasingly court the adult contemporary market. Not a problem for me as it gives more people the chance to hear her voice, but I prefer earlier Flack to late Flack. I enjoy this album for the Hathaway collaboration and "Move in With Me". But you also can smell the disco in "Move in With Me" and the adult pop contemporary production that slides into even these treasures.

Roberta Flack's voice always shines and I can't give even her worst work less than 3 stars. This is above average Flack. Those seeking Roberta the artist would be wiser to start with "Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway" and then pick up her earlier albums where her voice was more present and the tunes highlighted what makes her such a unique treasure.

Review by Jason Elias

Released in 1977, Blue Lights in the Basement is Roberta Flack's follow-up to 1975's Feel Like Makin' Love. Of course during the space between the two efforts, R&B and pop had certainly changed immensely. This album finds Flack responding to the changing times with a batch of smooth tracks and a polished and accomplished production. Of course by this time, she seemed to be divorced from the intelligent and recondite work that typified the early part of her career. Some of the tracks here do come close to that style; "25th of Last December" and "Love Is the Healing" throw in some nice changes to complement Flack's sweet and patient vocals. What caused this album to be such a big seller was the Flack and Donny Hathaway duet, "The Closer I Get to You." The track easily attains the grace and gorgeous sound that a lot of the like-minded songs here just miss. The dramatic "Where I'll Find You" appropriately closes the album and has a great echo effect on her voice during the chorus. Flack is indeed in great voice here, but Blue Lights in the Basement is most notable for its hit single rather than the tracks that surround it. ~ Jason Elias 2013 Limited edition SHM-CD Japanese paper sleeve pressing.
