[#1] Harlequin --- Dave Grusin and Lee Ritenour    
大家好,

如果要數出當代爵士樂的名盤, Dave Grusin和Lee Ritenour的這張名為"Harlequin"絕對是其中之一, 相信不少爵士樂發燒友都會很熟悉; 不只他們這兩位老拍擋的名字在音樂界紅透半邊天, 而且他們有不少的出品, 包括各自各的出品的水準都成為一時佳話, 到今天仍然為人津津樂道!!

這張唱片的出現, 可以成為反映出爵士樂在八十年代發展時期的面貌和方向; 自從傳統的爵士樂發展在七十年代中後期出現低潮之後, 流失了不少樂手和固有聽眾的情況, 顯示出當時的發展出現阻滯和存在不少的問題, 或頂搨n來一點變革才可為爵士樂的發展帶來新的轉變, 回復昔日的光彩!!

Contemporary Jazz的產生, 將爵士樂發展的方向和其他方面帶來新的變化; 充滿Fusion特色的爵士音樂作品不斷由四面八方地發表出來, 令到當代爵士樂的面貌帶來很明顯的轉變, 作品風格變得多元化, 可謂耳目一新!! 或酗斯M會有不少的爵士樂迷不接受所謂新派的當代爵士樂, 依舊喜歡聽傳統的爵士樂; 但是, 時代是需要不斷進步, 不能總是停留在昨天的境地, 停滯不前!! 音樂和為人處世的道理同樣也要更好的轉變, 才會新的明天和希望!!

Dave Grusin當年也深受不少樂界發展因素的影響, 後來和著有同樣發展理念的著名錄音師Larry Rosen一起創辦了專門推出當代爵士樂唱片的GRP Records (Grusin and Larry Productions), 為爵士樂界添上一份新的發展動力, 讓有著不同特色的樂手和歌手加盟, 給予很大的自由度, 讓他/她們泡製出充滿不同特色和元素的音樂, 為聽眾帶來全新風格的音樂去欣賞!!

話說回頭, 不如看看Lee Ritenour對於這張唱片的介紹:

"It seems that this collaboration with Dave Grusin and me has been coming for some time. It's been over10 years since Dave and I first met at an informal jam session at Sergio Mendes' house in 1974. At that point, I was "the kid" when Dave and I started to work together. (Can't say that anymore!) I would play guitar on his film scores and record dates and he would jam with me on several of my albums and produced my first Elektra album, "The Captain's Journey."

For those fans of mine who have followed my records over the years, you don’t have to look too closely to realize that I’ve had a love affair with Brazilian music.

The first time I traveled to Rio was in 1973 with guitarist/arranger Oscar Castro Neves. In 1979, I recorded part of my “Rio” album there with Oscar, Don Grusin (Dave’s brother), and a number of great Brazilian musicians. It was on that trip that I first heard of Ivan Lins. Ever since that trip, I’ve been a big, big (giant!) fan of Ivan’s. You only need to listen to his songs on this album to know what I’m talking about.

This year Ivan performed at the “Rock In Rio” Festival and sang in front of 400 000 fans who knew all his songs and sang them along with him! It is Dave’s and my pleasure to introduce Ivan Lins to the rest of the world. So even if you don’t understand Portuguese, you can listen to Ivan’s voice like an instrument. Regardless of language, I think the message comes across.

By the way, both Dave and I played somewhat hybrid instruments on this album. I used almost exclusively my Yamaha classical guitar (mixed acoustically and plugged into my amplifiers), plus I played a Gibson Chet Atkins classical electric guitar. Dave, besides playing straight acoustic piano, plus an array of synthesizers, used a midi-acoustic piano. (That’s a combination acoustic piano that triggers the synthesizers.) What ends up sounding like many overdubbed parts is in fact one performance. (Once a while, technology does help!)"
