专辑说明:

一位天才歌手,我们该庆幸她终於回归到爵士乐的怀抱了。-All Music Guide

  来自L.A的歌手Laverne Butler是一位很独特的爵士女伶。毕业於纽奥良大学的Laverne其实是唱灵魂音乐和蓝调音乐起家的,后来深受Nancy Wilson风格的影响,开始尝试爵士曲风,这一尝试可不得了,立刻引起全美乐评疯狂讨论。Laverne Butler的风格自由奔放,听她的即兴演唱很像在平野驰骋的快速列车,十分过癮。在本辑中,MaxJAZZ要向全世界証明Laverne不只是一位优秀的节奏蓝调歌手,更是当今最好的爵士歌手之一。Laverne和美国第一线的乐手Bruce Barth、John Webber合作,将许多精采的作品以蓝调融合爵士乐的手法重新解构,流行感和爵士味兼具,是张非常难得的佳作。

Review by Michael G. Nastos [-]

Shreveport, LA native Laverne Butler came up in a musical family, and she's learned her lessons well. She sings jazz, blues and gospel in a manner quite reminiscent of Nancy Wilson, with a sleek, supple voice that oozes class. There are no gimmicky affectations or cutesy inflections, just straight soul. Backed by pianist/producer Bruce Barth and bassist John Webber -- both first-class players -- and drummer Klaus Suonsaari, Butler sings some of her favorite standards known worldwide. The CD starts with a string of tunes, including a swinging "This Bitter Earth," a ballad treatment of "Please Send Me Someone to Love," and a slow "Hit the Road Jack" -- all employ background singers, sometimes using sweeping doo-wahs or call-and-response jiving. An up blues, "One for My Baby," (without the singers) lets Butler cut loose and show she can stand on her own. After a Barth trio number, the instrumental waltz "Late Sunday Afternoon," the singer gets on a roll for the remainder of the program with solid, honest melancholia on "I'm a Fool to Want You," a fine "Born to Be Blue," a light blue "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying," and the gospel original of Butler's "All That I Know." She finally gets animated, shouting on "Since I Fell for You," while doting and crying out on the finale "Backwater Blues." There is also Quicktime video bonus track of "Days of Wine & Roses." The second half of this recording has some powerful sounds, attesting to the ability Butler already has. She's good, and bound to get better.

LaVerne Butler: Blues in the City (1999)
By
C. MICHAEL BAILEY,
Published: August 1, 1999
LaVerne Butler: Blues in the City In the Tradition. Was Bessie Smith a “blues singer” or a “jazz singer”? What about Dinah Washington? Billie Holiday is an easier case. She recorded only two true twelve bar blues songs. But these other artists? They are not so easy. So with the case of LaVerne Butler. The music on Blues In The City is that seductive hybrid existing where the edges of barroom blues and high-style jazz begin to dissolve into one another, creating an aural taste and aroma that is at once sophisticated and earthy. This is a disc that remains firmly (and comfortably) in the middle of that intersection where popular music, jazz and blues kiss.

Influences. Colleagues have opined that Ms. Butler sounds like a pop Dinah or blue Billie. I think she is a female Sinatra. Her repertoire on this disc includes the Sinatra classics “One More for the Road” and “Willow Weep for Me”. Her phrasing is simple and lean in a thoughtful way, like the Chairman’s. Her delivery is in all good taste. There are no scat pyrotechnics. No, this is not Butler’s style. Instead, she concentrates on the nuances. Caressing syllables and rests in a sensuous way that is never cheap—always tasteful and refined.

This disc is populated with work-horse standards made fresh by Butler’s spare approach. The only possible quibble would be the inclusion of background vocalists, who detract from Butler’s authoritative delivery. Then again, the songs are all fun because of their inclusion. A sexy “Hit The Road Jack” is the disc highlight. The supporting trio is very fine delivering smart, understate solos that perfectly match Butler’s overall approach.

This is not music of reverence, it is music of practice. Blues In The City is a pragmatic release illustrating how this music is supposed to sound.

Blues in the City

LaVerne Butler’s latest release, A Foolish Thing To Do, captures her confidence, fluid mastery of the jazz form and her genuine joy in the music. With esteemed sidemen Bruce Barth (piano), Darryl Hall (bass), Victor Lewis (drums), David “Fathead” Newman (tenor saxophone), Steve Wilson (alto saxophone) and Terell Stafford (trumpet), not to mention a full complement of strings on several tracks, A Foolish Thing To Do features romantic numbers tinged by the blues as well as pop tunes infused with a jazz sensibility, songwriters include Ms. Butler in collaboration with Bruce Barth, along with Cole Porter, Carole King, Jobim and Burt Bacharach.

“Her greatest strength seems to be her ability to deliver each tune with superb rhythmic phrasings and colorful, intimate tones while drawing attention to the full impact of the meanings contained in the lyric.” Offbeat Magazine

“…Butler is in fine form…she generates an easy-flowing groove and a tenderly insinuating timbre…it’s hard to resist the warm embrace of Butler’s style.”
(3 stars) Los Angeles Times

“On a ‘A Foolish Thing To Do,’ Butler proves she can handle just about anything.” Stereophile Magazine
