St. Louis Blues - Louis Armstrong & His Orchestra

很多人談到 Louis Armstrong, 他們就會想到 "What A Wonderful World"。其實,Louis在1950年以前所錄製的音樂才為爵士的經典。他早前曾在爵士之父King Oliver的樂隊Creole Jazz Band演奏過。他自己早期的樂隊包括 Louis Armstrong and His Hot Five 和 Hot Seven。這首 "St. Louis Blues" 是與美國黑人藍調女歌手Bessie Smith一起錄製於1925年。唱片公司為Columbia。爵士愛好者應該也知道,Louis Armstrong對爵士的最大貢獻,就是把號子的聲音鮮明化,讓號子的聲音稱為主旋律的一部分。有聽藍調習慣的朋友也知道,歌手們有改變歌詞的習慣,讓歌曲更能表達歌手自己的心情。"St Louis Blues"的歌詞也曾被多次改編。以下的歌詞摘錄,僅為參考。


When many talk about Louis Armstrong, they think of the song "What a Wonderful Word". In fact, the recordings that Louis did before 1950s were the main matters of jazz. In his early career, he used to play in King Oliver's Creole Jazz Band. After that, he had his own bands include Louis Arstrong and His Hot Five, and His Hot Seven. This song "St Louis Blues" was recorded with Bessie Smith in 1925 by Columbia. If you are a jazz fan, you must know that what Louis Armstrong contributed to the jazz genre was to foreground the sound of his trumpet, and to transform the sound to a part of the leading melody. If you are a regular blues listener, you should also know that musicians tend to change the lyrics rather often, in order to express themselves better. The lyrics of "St Louis Blues" has also been changed many times, the lyrics below is only for reference. 


歌詞/lyrics:

I hate to see that evening sun go down
I hate to see that evening sun go down
'Cause my lovin' baby done left this town

If I feel tomorrow like I feel today
If I feel tomorrow like I feel today
I'm gonna pack my trunk and make my getaway

Oh, that St. Louis woman with her diamond rings
She pulls my man around by her apron strings
And if it wasn't for powder and her store-bought hair
Oh, that man of mine wouldn't go nowhere

I got those St. Louis blues, just as blue as I can be
Oh, my man's got a heart like a rock cast in the sea
Or else he wouldn't have gone so far from me

I love my man like a schoolboy loves his pie
Like a Kentucky colonel loves his rocker and rye
I'll love my man until the day I die, Lord, Lord

I got the St. Louis blues, just as blue as I can be, Lord, Lord
That man's got a heart like a rock cast in the sea
Or else he wouldn't have gone so far from me

I got those St. Louis blues
I got the blues, I got the blues, I got the blues
My man's got a heart like a rock cast in the sea
Or else he wouldn't have gone so far from me, Lord, Lord
