艾迪希金斯五重奏与弦乐团:象白月光 Eddie Higgins Quintet With Strings: Moonlight Becomes You (SACD) 【Venus】

曾被象白月光如瀑布流泻般的琴音紧紧包围吗?有种说不出来的温暖,好像有人正来探访冬眠中的你,一种既陌生又熟悉的感觉。

只有洁白无暇如月光的Eddie Higgins五重奏才能以恰到好处的和絃轻轻触碰沉睡已久的耳朵,12点以后的城市是最美的午夜时光,为自己倒一杯红酒,静静让Eddie的温柔琴韵将你融化。

Eddie Higgins爱德华·海登·希金斯1932年2月21日在美国马萨诸塞州的剑桥降生。童年一直由他的母亲教育他。大学时,希金斯在芝加哥的夜总会裏演奏钢琴。有时他领导他自己的三重奏组合,但是他有时也和包括艾尔·格雷,科尔曼·霍金斯,弗雷迪·哈伯德等在内的知名艺术家合作演出。虽然他的曲目有折衷的感觉,但是希金斯的风格承载著跳舞乐队时代一些艺术家的明显痕迹。他善于独奏也善于伴奏,他常常与他的歌手妻子梅雷迪思·丹布罗西奥合作演出。

身为Venus Records旗下最受欢迎的大将,Eddie Higgins与SCOTT HAMILTON(萨克斯)、STEVE GILMORE(贝斯)、BILL GOODWIN(鼓)合作的四重奏已经推出过不少经典专辑。虽然从Bop演奏起家,EddieHiggins四重奏的作品却绝对不会有难以消化的味道,而Eddie Higgins尊重旋律进行的演奏方式,可以让你清楚地回想起歌曲熟悉的旋律。Eddie Higgins对于慢板歌曲的处理的确有一手,在钢琴轻声演奏的同时还能够顾及音色的圆润及节奏的准确拿捏,听来让人沈醉。

这张专辑由Jay Leonhart, Joe Ascione, Joe Cohn以及Joe Locke,联手Dick Lieb指挥的弦乐队打造而成。这张高度推荐的专辑全篇效果完美,Eddie Higgins的钢琴演奏如洁白无暇的月光,轻轻触碰沈睡已久的耳朵,叫醒沈寂已久的孤寂的灵魂......

Eddie Higgins fronts a quintet, with string arrangements by Dick Lieb backing him on most tracks, as he covers ten standards. The effect of this lineup invites comparisons to the George Shearing Quintet of old. Vibraphonist Joe Locke, guitarist Joe Cohn, bassist Jay Leonhart, and drummer Joe Ascione are first-rate musicians who primarily stick to supporting roles, though Cohn's tasty solo in "The Folks Who Live on the Hill" and Leonhart's call and response with the leader and Locke's dancing vibes add some variety in a brisk treatment of "If I Should Lose You." The snappy arrangement of "Have You Met Miss Jones?" showcases Higgins and Locke. The final track, "When April Comes," is an original ballad by the leader in a soft bossa nova setting. The overall effect of this recommended CD makes it perfect for late-evening listening with someone special. ~ Ken Dryden Eddie Higgins Quintet: Eddie Higgins (arranger, piano); Joe Locke (vibraphone); Joe Cohn (guitar); Jay Leonhart (bass); Joe Ascione (drums).
