戴安娜.克瑞儿已缔造史上唯一拥有连8张Billboard爵士冠军专辑之空前纪录,更接连获得葛莱美奖13度提名并5度赢回奖项,被盛讚是自爵士乐第一夫人艾拉‧费兹洁拉以降当代最出类拔萃的爵士天后,她同时也是近30年来累计个人专辑销量的纪录保持者,历年专辑获得9张金唱片,3张白金唱片,7张多重白金唱片的销售认证,成为这个世代最具代表性与最受欢迎的极至美声。

在全球乐迷3年期盼下终於绽放的最新专辑「美丽年代」中,克瑞儿首度与16座葛莱美奖天王制作人大卫佛斯特David Foster合作,两人融合了现代爵士的即兴风雅与弦乐编曲的动人情境,由这一位世界最美丽的声音,来赋予本世纪最美丽的10餘经典金曲昇华一新的听觉享受。克瑞儿拥有足以将歌曲的歌词情境与旋律意境推向极致昇华之界的歌艺,面对任何一种类型音乐风格的歌曲,她都能带著大胆嚐试的精神,赋予一种唯美的质感,成就当代最具个人特色的美声印记…

【关於专辑】在专辑中,她选唱了自她年少时代就深受啟发的当代乐坛的经典名曲,透过流行触觉敏锐的大卫佛斯特重新编曲呈现出更胜原作的精致质感,也让克瑞儿动人心弦的歌声与钢琴演奏得以在其中尽情释放,使原本臻於顶级的听觉饗宴更上一层楼,打造出一张无分流行与爵士乐迷皆能长存珍爱的雋永新经典。选曲涵括了- 台湾乐迷最为钟爱的「Don't Dream It's Over永不放弃 (别想了,一切都已过去…)-澳洲乐团挤屋Crowded House的成名曲,啷噹六便士合唱团、苏珊波尔、保罗杨等钟情一致翻唱之作 」、加州摇滚代表作California Dreaming以及经典摇滚乐团老鹰合唱团 The Eagles抒情名曲I Can't Tell You Why、Desperado ,艾尔顿强Elton John的Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word、10c.c.乐团的1975年英国金榜冠军I'm Not In Love、卡本特兄妹的Superstar等等……

克瑞儿在专辑中同时与两位不同世代的加拿大同乡歌手合作,一首是与荣获4座葛莱美奖的新世纪传统流行乐巨星麦可布雷(Michael Bublé)深情对唱爱尔兰创作歌手吉尔伯特苏利文(Gilbert O'Sullivan)在1972年风靡英、美排行榜前5名的畅销曲"Alone Again (Naturally)",另一首是与以"(Everything I Do) I Do It For You"感动全球,同时跨刀拍摄专辑封面照片的流行摇滚歌手布莱恩亚当斯(Bryan Adams)真情传唱荣获奥斯卡与葛莱美奖肯定的音乐家兰迪纽曼(Randy Newman)创作於1995年的名曲"Feels Like Home"。此外,披头四的摇滚健将保罗麦卡尼也友情献上全新创作曲"If I Take You Home Tonight"。

制作人大卫佛斯特在谈到与戴安那克瑞儿的合作时说:「与克瑞儿合作,我从没想过这件事会实现,戴安娜最棒的地方就是在认识她的这25年来,她真的是一位最杰出的歌者,她可以跨越到不同音乐领域,这对我来而言是一个惊人的发现,我确信戴安娜私底下早就很瞭解爵士之外的各种 流行乐,她其实是领先我们的。」大卫佛斯特特别喜欢他说服戴安娜克瑞儿担任钢琴独奏的几首歌,他表示:「像是"California Dreamin'"与"I Can't Tell You Why",戴安娜弹得动人,简单,扎实,很有画面感觉,而且充满旋律感的钢琴独奏,这些钢琴独奏几乎像是可以跟著畅的感觉,这就是展现她作为出色乐手的地方,她的独奏有著一个弧形,像许多伟大的爵士乐手,他在开始弹之前早就知道独奏结束时的感觉,这就是伟大与只是很好之间的差别所在,我以我能带出歌手的最佳演唱能力自豪,我想我们在这张专辑就是做到心中的完美…

克瑞儿在聊到专辑的选曲时说:「专辑中的许多歌曲都是我成长过程中我在家听电台与听唱片时所喜爱的歌曲,这些歌我自己唱给自己听都好几年了,这一次,我只需要歌曲的歌谱来确定我不会唱错歌词就好了,我有10cc合唱团的"I'm Not In Love"的45转唱片,我一直都在听布莱恩亚当斯,我的父母亲和我都很喜欢琳达朗丝黛(Linda Ronstadt),朗丝黛是我唱"Desperado"这首歌时的灵感,我的墙上还有张彼得佛莱普顿(Peter Frampton *代表作"Baby, I Love Your Way")的海报,我是一个爱跟朋友閒混的普通青少年,我不是只听爵士乐….」

【关於歌曲】- 60年代的嬉皮国歌、由妈妈与爸爸合唱团所唱红的“California Dreamin'”,由克瑞儿和缓深邃的吟唱取代了原本轻快的民谣和声,慢舞般的节拍逐步勾勒出像是冬阳般的温暖景象,梦想中的加州彷彿近在咫尺,充满不可思议的电影感。

-老鹰合唱团经典名曲“Desperado”并未更动太多原始架构,克瑞儿仅以色调沉静的爵士钢琴伴随苍凉浑厚的歌声,幽幽倾吐歌词里的悲伤感怀,令人动容的詮释堪称继当年啟发她的流行天后琳达‧朗丝黛之后最佳女声翻唱版本。

- 卡本特兄妹最著名的情歌之一“Superstar”,以极尽缠绵悱惻的弦乐贯穿全曲,纵使克瑞儿刻意冷静疏离的低迴声线也难以掩藏面对爱情逝去的凄切婉转心境,听了叫人柔肠寸断,久久难以释怀。

-“Alone Again”原为70年代爱尔兰歌手吉伯特‧欧苏利文的成名经典,由克瑞儿与被誉为「法兰克‧辛纳屈廿一世纪接班人」的新浪漫主义男声麦可‧布雷深情对唱,克瑞儿如丝绒般滑顺的低音与布雷清亮昂扬的高音交融无间,轻柔诉说对至亲的无尽感怀。

-“Wallfower”并非民谣摇滚宗师巴布‧狄伦最有名的歌曲,却是克瑞儿的私心最爱,长久以来只能在演唱会中欣赏演出的乐迷此次终可一偿宿愿将其珍藏,克瑞儿形容自己就像方法派的演员般倾注全副感情於歌词里的角色,随著旋律的跌宕起伏牵引人心,后起之秀布雷克‧米尔斯写意简约的吉他则为它增添无穷餘韵。

-“If I Take You Home Tonight”是披头四巨星保罗‧麦卡尼过去未曾发表的创作,两年前克瑞儿担任他的音乐总监时无意间听见试录带后爱不释手,才让这首美丽而动人的慢板情歌有了和世人见面的机会,也令人重温披头四早期雋永优雅的流行曲调。

- 老鹰合唱团“I Can't Tell You Why”轻盈的拉丁编曲呈现与原版各异其趣的柔畅风情,中段转换音色纯粹宜人、生动如画的钢琴独奏尤其精采,随著渐次融入的和谐人声一同带领听者前进深邃无垠的梦幻空间。

- 艾尔顿‧强是另一位影响克瑞儿至深的钢琴巨匠,小时候拆开双亲送的圣诞礼物发现是他专辑时欣喜若狂的心情至今记忆犹新,而翻唱现在与她亲暱如同家人的他生涯代表作“Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word”更显得别具意义,克瑞儿沙哑迷离的詮释发散出醇醉动人的芳韵,将欲言又止的徬徨心境流露无遗。

- 英年早逝的70年代传奇民谣歌手吉姆‧克劳契留下的“Operator”用柔美典雅的弦乐与钢琴交织复古情怀,叙事感十足的吟唱极其引人入胜,即令现今已然是接线生不复存在的年代,电话彼端所欲传递的爱恋痴狂却不曾改变分毫。

- 英国前卫摇滚名团10cc膾炙人口的排行冠军金曲“I'm Not In Love”,起首徐缓沈溺的自弹自唱洋溢对爱无奈的浓烈伤感,其后繚绕不绝於耳的壮阔弦乐极为撼动人心,像似奋力要将这些明知不适合却盲目难舍的傻瓜们敲醒。

- 由全才电影音乐创作大师蓝迪‧纽曼所做的“Feels Like Home”,克瑞儿与好友加拿大摇滚巨星布莱恩‧亚当斯对唱,简约的钢琴伴奏与两人同样浑厚沙哑的歌声相得益彰,温暖著每一颗嚮往归乡的疲惫心灵。

- 台湾乐迷所爱----澳洲挤屋合唱团80年代曾经风靡全球的畅销曲“Don't Dream It's Over”褪去了华美世俗的外衣,克瑞儿想像著20几岁的自己初离家时的情景,狭小的居住空间里却怀抱无穷的音乐梦想,转化为演唱中真挚诚恳的丰沛情感,也是她想要传达给乐迷继续面对这个复杂世界的勇气与力量。

【挚爱台湾加值版】特别加收4首美丽昇华演唱录音“Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word”及“Wallflower”现场版本,以及披头四的抒情经典“In My Life”和英国节奏蓝调传奇乔吉名人轻快飞扬的舞曲“Yeah Yeah”,由克瑞儿与佛斯特谱写全新风情,同样魅力动人,重返属於纯真年代的共同记忆…

The good news is
By shawnonamazon on February 3, 2015
Format: Audio CD
Miss Krall does her versions of mostly 70's and 80's soft rock gems. The good news is, fans of Diana Krall will love this CD/Album/MP3. And the other good news is that this release is on vinyl, and if it's anything like her other releases on vinyl and you have a nice system, this is pure ear candy from start to finish. Let's face it, Diana Krall could literally sing the phonebook and it would go platinum. A number of these covers not only work, but are all the way Krall: "California Dreamin';" "Superstar"; "I Can't Tell You Why;" "I''m Not In Love;" "Don't Dream it's Over." There is bad news here, though. Well, actually mixed news. If you're a Krall purist and a complete music fan, about half of these selections fall flat (hence 4 stars instead of 5). Let's face reality here, do we really need another version of "Desperado?" Really?!? However there is more good news - the remaining eight songs are trademark Krall. The top selections have a soaring and rich orchestral layer that pops every time. Dylan's "Wallflower" is a complete surprise which finds Miss Krall doing something she does best: reinventing a popular tune and making it her very own. Diana literally remakes four songs on this release and completely renews them ala Krall, making her versions equal to, if not better than the originals. Ultimately, Diana Krall has reinvented "Lounge Jazz" for 2015 and stamped it with her signature vocals and virtuoso piano skills. She surrounds herself with talented pros from top to bottom as usual (Did you see who produced this album?). Almost a classic. Worth the wait for most everyone who is familiar with her music.

Biography
“Wallflower, wallflower, won't you dance with me? / I'm fallin' in love with you”
—“Wallflower” by Bob Dylan

Musically speaking, Diana Krall is no wallflower.

By any standard this five-time Grammy® winning jazz pianist and vocalist is one of the most accomplished and distinctive musicians in the world today. Respected far and wide as a wildly successful recording and performing artist, Krall remains a true musical force. At any given moment she could be producing Barbra Streisand’s new album, serving as musical director and arranger for Paul McCartney or hitting the road for a good cause with Neil Young. As the record shows, Diana Krall has already done all that and much more. Along the way Krall has sold more albums than any other female jazz artist of the last 30 years, establishing herself as one of the best-selling and most beloved performers of her generation, one whose recordings thus far have earned her nine gold, three platinum and seven multi-platinum albums.

On Wallflower, Krall’s stunning and surprising new album for Verve Records, this world-class player has consciously chosen to hand over a little control to sixteen-time Grammy® winning producer David Foster in order, once again, to do something unexpected. On the new album she has recorded a collection of songs from the Sixties to present day, showcasing her considerable gifts as a vocalist in a bold and beautiful way. Krall sings a set of songs that include familiar popular classics like The Mamas and the Papas’ “California Dreaming” and the Eagles’ “Desperado,” favorite vintage songs by Krall’s musical heroes Bob Dylan (he inspired the album’s title track “Wallflower”) and Elton John (“Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word”). The album also features more recent gems like Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over” and a wonderful new composition from Paul McCartney (“If I Take You Home Tonight”). Recorded in Los Angeles and New York, Wallflower is a tremendously refreshing and collaborative effort that reflects Krall in a gorgeous new light.

“I have to give a lot of the credit for this album to David,” Krall says. “He’s always said, `Let’s work together’ and finally the timing was right. I was ready to work with David and let him do what he does best. He did all of the arrangements and played a lot of the piano. He blew me away. I always knew David was good but I gained an even further appreciation for his talents as a producer and as a musician.”

That feeling proved to be extremely mutual.

“Working with Diana was fantastic,” says Foster. “I always wondered what it would be like working together. I never thought this would happen because I live in this `pop’ world and Diana lives in this `jazz’ world— or at least that’s how it’s perceived. But one of the many great things about Diana, after knowing her for 25 years, is that she’s truly an outstanding pop singer. Her ability to cross over into pop was a fabulous discovery for me. I’m sure Diana secretly knew about it all along. She tends to be way ahead of the rest of us.”

In making Wallflower Krall says, “it was a genuine pleasure to focus on my time in the vocal booth and let David really produce me. I thought, let’s make the kind of pop record David really knows how to do. I definitely gave my input about the songs and the musicians but for the most part I gave up the piano and the arrangements to him because I wanted this experience to be different— and it was.”

“I wouldn’t even pretend to go up against Diana as a musician because she is so talented,” Foster explains, “but she did allow herself to be produced, with a lot of input of course. She knows what she wants and doesn’t want to do. She runs so deep in the jazz world that she leaves me at the gate as a piano player and musician, there’s no argument there. The fact that she responded to my input was so exciting. We kind of fed off of each other.”

Foster says that he particularly loves the songs on Wallflower where he convinced Krall to play piano solos. “On songs like `California Dreaming’ and ‘I Can’t Tell You Why,’ Diana plays beautiful, simple, solid, picturesque piano solos filled with melody. They are almost sing-able. That’s part of who Diana is as a musician. Her solos have a real arc. Like a lot of the great jazz musicians she sees the end of the solo before she starts. That’s what separates the good from the great.” Foster adds “I pride myself on getting great vocals out of people and that’s what I think we’ve done here. Diana has made a lot of incredible records and her success speaks for itself. But this time I really drilled down on the vocals, finding the exact right key for her voice to get the maximum out of her. I go into every project with the false notion that I’m going to get a better vocal out of the artist than anyone ever has, before or since. Now that may be a false notion but it’s been my mantra. I told her that when you leave me that open canvas you’ll get the best of me.

As Krall puts it with a laugh “When I work I like to give people the freedom to do what they do. I’m not a lint picker. I believe in letting people play the way they play and then tweak from there. I followed David’s direction but stood up when necessary. We had normal disagreements but it was a very smooth process for me, especially after I threw him out on the street a few times. But seriously, we both grew up in the same part of Canada and there’s a kind of understanding there, a common ground.”

That connection even helped inspire some of Wallflower’s song selection. “If you think about anyone growing up, even if someone has an extraordinary talent in one area of music, that doesn’t mean that’s all they listen to,” Foster says. “Diana grew up on Vancouver Island just like I did, listening to pop music on Top 40 radio like every other teenager. The songs we’re doing on this album are songs she’s loved since childhood and she sings the hell out of them. Diana is a very musical person and she has a great feel for these songs. Wallflower is a just another amazing extension of who she is and what she can do.”

“A lot of the songs on Wallflower are ones I grew up loving on the radio and on vinyl, songs I heard at home. These are songs I’ve been singing to myself for years. I just needed the lyric sheet to make sure I wasn’t singing the wrong words all this time. I got the 45 for “I’m Not In Love” by 10cc. I listened to Bryan Adams all the time. My parents and I both loved Linda Ronstadt, who was my inspiration to sing ‘Desperado.’ I even had a Peter Frampton poster on the wall. I was just a typical teenager hanging out with friends, not just listening to jazz. When Krall hears “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word,” she can still remember the musical Christmas gift that keeps on giving, a prized copy of her hero and mentor Elton John’s album Blue Moves. “My biggest influence beside Oscar Peterson is Elton John,” Krall says. “I have a picture somewhere of Christmas morning when Elton’s Blue Moves album came out. I wanted that album so badly. The photo is of me when I was 16 with my mom and my dad holding that album. I used to listen to it downstairs on my record player. I had a Rhodes down there so I could play along. Over the years Elton has become like family. A while back we sang ‘Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word’ together on my husband Elvis Costello’s TV show Spectacle. So many Elton songs mean so much to me but that one in particular is special.”

Recalling Neil Finn’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over,” Krall remembers “lying on my floor when I had a little tiny apartment in Pasadena, California, listening to that song over and over. I just loved it. That song has been going around in my head since I was about 22 and I really wanted to get it right. The lyrics still feel just right for the world today.”

Krall first heard Paul McCartney’s beautiful “If I Take You Home Tonight”, a previously unrecorded composition, when she was working closely with him on his 2012 Kisses on the Bottom album. “That experience will stay in my life and my music forever,” explains Krall. “When I asked Paul about recording the song, because he knew I loved it, he said ‘Sure.’ We talked about switching the lyrics around because of the gender but I generally like to keep the words the way they are, so in the end we didn’t change a thing.

Finally, Wallflower’s title track is a relatively unknown Bob Dylan composition that has become a personal favorite of Krall’s.

“I love Bob Dylan like crazy,” says Krall. “I’ve only met him a few times. I told him I love the way he plays piano. He said, ‘Well, you’re a piano player, so you should know.’ Dylan’s music runs so deep. From the moment I heard the demo version of “Wallflower” with Bob singing his song along with a dog barking in the background, I have loved this song. I’ve been performing ‘Wallflower’ for a year and a half now with my band and I just had to record it here.” Wallflower is a standout track featuring one of Krall’s most affecting vocals ever and some outstanding guitar work from acclaimed guitarist Blake Mills. “This is a song that I feel very connected to,” Krall explains. “I’m a bit of a method actor and ‘Wallflower’ is a part I really wanted to play.”

Says David Foster admiringly, “Diana can be a wallflower but she can be fierce too. She is a genuinely great and introspective artist in the studio and then a day later you see her onstage cutting loose, being hysterical, the life of the party. Diana is someone who can go to all extremes beautifully and she’s proves that over and over again. ”

Editorial Reviews
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Diana Krall paid tribute to her father on Glad Rag Doll, the 2012 album sourced from his collection of 78-rpm records, and, in a sense, its 2015 successor Wallflower is a companion record of sorts, finding the singer revisiting songs from her childhood. Like many kids of the 20th century, she grew up listening to the radio, which meant she was weaned on the soft rock superhits of the '70s -- songs that earned sniffy condescension at the time but nevertheless have turned into modern standards due to their continual presence in pop culture and arguably were treated that way at the time, seeing cover after cover by middlebrow pop singers. Krall does not limit herself to the songbook of Gilbert O'Sullivan, Jim Croce, the Carpenters, Elton John, and the Eagles, choosing to expand her definition of soft rock to include a previously unrecorded Paul McCartney song called "If I Take You Home Tonight" a leftover from his standards album Kisses on the Bottom, Bob Dylan's "Wallflower," Chantal Kreviazuk's "Feels Like Home," and Neil Finn's "Don't Dream It's Over," a song from 1986 that has been covered frequently in the three decades since. "Don't Dream It's Over" slides into this collection easily, as it's as malleable and timeless as "California Dreamin'," "Superstar," "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word," or "Operator That's Not the Way It Feels," songs that are identified with specific artists but are often covered successfully. Krall's renditions rank among those successes because she's understated, never fussing with the melodies but allowing her arrangements to slink by in a deliberate blend of sparseness and sophistication. It's an aesthetic that helps transform the Eagles' "I Can't Tell You Why" and 10cc's "I'm Not in Love," singles that are as successful as much for their production as their song, into elegant torch songs, yet it doesn't do much for Kreviazuk's pedestrian "Feels Like Home," nor does it lend itself to the loping country of "Wallflower," which may provide the name for this album but feels like an uninvited guest among these majestically melodic middle-of-the-road standards. These stumbles are slight and, tellingly, they put into context Krall's achievement with Wallflower: by singing these songs as sweet and straight as the dusty old standards on Glad Rag Doll or the bossa nova on 2009's Quiet Nights, she demonstrates how enduring these once-dismissed soft rock tunes really are. [Wallflower was also released on LP.]

(?) [公告]留口水、评论相关规则 | [活动]每日签到 轻松领取电驴经验

    小贴士:
  1. 类似“顶”、“沙发”之类没有营养的文字,对勤劳贡献的楼主来说是令人沮丧的反馈信息。
  2. 提问之前请再仔细看一遍楼主的说明,或许是您遗漏了。
  3. 勿催片。请相信驴友们对分享是富有激情的,如果确有更新版本,您一定能搜索到。
  4. 请勿到处挖坑绊人、招贴广告。既占空间让人厌烦,又没人会搭理,于人于己都无利。
  5. 如果您发现自己的评论不见了,请参考以上4条。
