You're Driving Me Crazy - The Temperance Seven

The Temperance Seven - "You are Driving Me Crazy" (1961)

我對英國50, 60年代的傳統爵士回潮情有獨鍾。這是本來屬於美國新奧爾良20, 30年代的黑人爵士藝術,通過水兵帶回國的黑膠唱片傳入英國。當美國黑人爵士在很長一段時間都沒有有被本土流行文化接受,在海洋的另一邊,英國的樂人們卻毫無保留地去欣賞這種獨特的音樂藝術。靠聽著唱片來模仿聲音,同時再加入本土英國文化的元素,50年代初,英國傳統爵士誕生了(trad jazz)。 這是一件非常美好和純潔的事情,因為在英國的這些白人從沒有覺得這是低俗的音樂,他們跨越種族歧視,不斷地學習和吸收。這是兩個民族文化混合的精髓,是遠離金錢利益最純潔的結合,最崇高的靈魂交流。The Temperance Seven 就是這個時期的其中一個代表樂隊。

I have a passion towards British 50s, and 60s traditional jazz. This type of music originally came out from the black community in New Orleans during the 20s and 30s. By listening to the records brought back by the sailors, it travled to the isles of the Great Britain. While black music struggled to be accepted within the local popular culture, onthe other side of the ocean, British musicians really appreciated this type of music. By micmicing the sound through listening to the records, and at the same time adding local cultural aesthetics, in the early 1950s, we saw the birth of British trad jazz. This was an extraodinary thing and pure period. Because the musicians in Britain never looked down on the music, they overcame racism in order to learn and internalise the sound. This is the significance of the mix of two culture, two races, it's a innocent combination that was beyond money and authority, the highest status of soulful communication. The Temperance Seven was one of these legendary bands.
