专辑介绍:

艾瑞克亚历山大四重奏:诱魂情歌 Eric Alexander Quartet: Gentle Ballads III (CD) 【Venus】

日本Swing Journal金赏奖
(Swing Journal选定ゴールドディスク)

VENUS萨克斯风王子艾瑞克亚历山大,继轻柔情歌 销魂情歌后,又一代表作!


一般知名的爵士乐手较不愿意放下身段演奏抒情歌曲专辑,因为抒情歌曲较难展现出爵士乐手的视野与深度。不过身为中生代萨克斯风好手的艾瑞克亚历山大显然不这么认为,他与他的四重奏每年都在Venus Records旗下推出萨克斯风抒情演奏专辑,到这张已经是第三集(前二集为轻柔情歌 销魂情歌),而这也丝毫没有减损他在爵士乐界的重要性。

在蒙克萨克斯风大赛中获得亚军之后(第一名正是目前萨克斯风界的当红炸子鸡Joshua Redman ),艾瑞克亚历山大的名字马上出现在数不清的爵士专辑中。这也难怪,因为十二岁从竖笛转为萨克斯风吹奏后,艾瑞克亚历山大对於爵士乐的涉猎就相当广泛:从查理帕克、克里夫布朗、桑尼罗林斯、乔韩德森等人都是他心目中的偶像,而影响他最深的吹奏仍然来自两大巨星:柯曼霍金斯的和谐音色与约翰柯川的惊人旋律感。在大学时他也接受如乔洛瓦诺等大师的指导,可说是名师出高徒。

专辑虽然只有八首歌曲,但是总长却将近一个鐘头,因为其中不乏七至八分鐘的超长演奏。大家耳熟能详的旋律,透过这样长时间的演奏,却完全不显得烦腻,这就是这个四重奏演奏技巧过人的明证。成功的秘诀?艾瑞克亚历山大在这些抒情爵士专辑中只与自己最有默契的乐手合作:钢琴家Mike LeDonne曾经与他合作过专辑、贝斯手John Webber是他四重奏的经常性团员、鼓手Joe Farnesworth更是他长久以来的固定班底。在这样熟悉的环境下作业,即使是这样简单的情歌,在他们的演奏下也可以展现出不同的风味。像是在「You'll Be Mine Tonight」的尾声居然出现圣诞歌曲的熟悉旋律,就是让听者沉醉在抒情旋律时,会突然精神为之一振的趣味。

纽约的The Studio也是Venus Records经常合作的录音室,在这里录音师Katherine Miller与Venus Records固定的制作班底原哲夫、Todd Barkan共同合作,在2007年十一月纪录下此一完美的演奏。以Venus独家「Hyper Magnum Sound」系统混音的结果,萨克斯风音色丰满圆润、钢琴颗粒分明,而鼓与贝斯该有的衝击力、低频弹性与细节都恰如其分,是标準的Venus Records精良制作。

Third Release in Alexander's "Gentle Ballads" Series!

This eagerly awaited Venus release from tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander is the third in the renowned "Gentle Ballads" series. Like the earlier Gentle Ballads and Gentle Ballads II, this album is a collection of beautiful ballads that showcases the brawny and powerful Alexander's gentle and lyrical side.

And what a beautiful performance this is! Alexander's maturity as a musician is clearly reflected in his ballad playing. His big tone, his ability to express small nuances, and his muscular style free of cheap sentimentality combine to create stunning effects, elevating this album's status from merely good to one of a modern masterpiece.

All songs were written or intended as ballads, but Alexander and co. avoids uniformity by playing three songs in the middle section in medium tempo. Few tenor saxohpnists, expecially among his generation, are brave enough to record an all-ballad album. Alexander has done so three times now, and each time, he has given us something to be cherished for years. Highly recommended!

• Single Layer Stereo SACD

Eric Alexander, tenor sax

Review by Ken Dryden

Since arriving on the jazz scene, Eric Alexander has turned into one of the busiest tenor saxophonists, recording prolifically for labels in the U.S., Europe, and Japan, in addition to his participation in the all-star band One for All. This third volume of ballads for Venus utilizes the same rhythm section as the earlier two editions: pianist Mike LeDonne, bassist John Webber, and drummer Joe Farnsworth, three of the busiest jazz musicians in New York City. Alexander's shimmering setting of "Don't Explain" is spacious and lyrical, while his approach to "Summertime" is swaggering hard bop. His brisk setting of the often banal "Killing Me Softly with His Song" is a great improvement. LeDonne's lush introduction sets up Alexander's deliberate, rhapsodic rendition of "All the Way." This is a perfect CD for romance.
