Fats Waller - Lulu's Back in Town (1935)


Well look who's here
Lulu's back in town
My, my, my, yes, yes, yes

Gotta get my old tuxedo pressed
Gotta sew a button on my vest
'Cause tonight I've gotta look my best
Lulu's back in town

Gotta get a half a buck somewhere
Gotta shine my shoes and slick my hair

Alberta Hunter & Elkins-Payne Jubilee Qurtette - If the Rest of the World Don't Want You (Go Back to Your Mother and Dad) (192x)

這首歌所唱的內容如同其名 - 當整個世界都不要你的時候,你可以回到父母的身邊。此內容的宗教成份比較濃,通過感人的旋律與歌詞希望倡導信徒維護對家庭觀念。Alberta Hunter 是20,30年代的一位福音(gospel)歌手。當時美國社會很多黑人都通過週末的教堂聚會以及唱福音從而得到精神上的安撫。黑...

Robert Johnson - Love in Vain (1937)

可能很多人都會比較熟悉 The Rolling Stones 的 "Love in Vain" 版本,當年專輯《Let it Bleed》(1969) 發行的時候,瘋魔全球。但又有多少人知道他們的靈感來源呢?其實 The Rolling Stones 受了很多早期二戰前美國黑人藍調音樂的影響,他們所做的貢獻,便是把這些早期的藍調流行化,改編成我們現在所知道的Rock (搖滾):把吉他電子化,加上爵士鼓和貝斯,同時也把節奏“浪漫化”。Robert Johnson...

Eddie Kelly's Washboard Band - Blues in the Rain (193x)

今天來說說washboard音樂 ,washboard就是舊時的洗衣板。當時在美國的窮人因為沒錢買樂器,把洗衣板變成了一種打擊樂器。在手指上帶上金屬的指套,然後不停地在洗衣板上敲打。“洗衣板音樂”也可以被了解成是“廚房音樂”,家裡廚房有什麼能發聲的都能一塊兒加入到音樂裏面。我非常喜歡這類的音樂,因為它俱有一種家的感覺,尤其溫暖。未經修飾,不是為商業而創作的音樂,僅僅是為了自我的陶醉,快樂或發洩。當年爵士誕生的時候,新奧爾良的小孩也同樣的拿著自制的樂器在街頭敲打演奏,尋找著...

Bennie Moten's Kansas City Orchestra - Get Low Down Blues (192x)

Kansas City的爵士風格很獨特,不經修飾,而且和新奧爾良爵士一樣都帶有藍調成分。其中較為不同的是,Kansas City的風格注重於更多的敲擊樂器上,和同一年代 (20 - 30s)新奧爾良街上玩耍的音樂很像,但是他們卻把這種風格作為正式表演和錄製的方式。Bennie Moten是開拓Kansas City風格爵士的領導人物之一。他作曲并彈奏鋼琴。在二三十年代錄製了很多唱盤。他對往後爵士音樂的發展做出了很大的貢獻。有聽同一年代新奧爾良風格爵士的朋...

今天晚上要和小鳥玩藏貓貓,所以提前播歌。1928年的布魯斯。號子的拖長聲,懶惰的抱怨聲,是我最能深刻體會的一種表達....

他唱soul, blues, rythymic blues也唱gospel (美國黑人教堂裡的合唱和祈禱歌唱演繹方式,也一直對soul和blues有深刻影響)。

Ida Cox - "Blues for Rampart Street" (1961)

我常常想,那時的女人真的太性感了。他們的感知和知性。

I often think that the women from that era are so sexy. They had something called the trenscendental sentimental.
