她從美國回來 1989

劉美君89年懷孕,夏天在美國誕下一女,產後回港推出《笑說》大碟,豁然開朗。

我當年看八卦新聞,說她曾極力挽救瀕臨破裂的婚姻,跟很多夫婦一樣,她和丈夫以生孩子去箍煲,當輕舟已過萬重山,《笑說》記錄了一次感情的暗湧。

據說,《愛是無涯》是唱給黃泰來聽的。(可是,他們在94年離婚,一子一女跟她。)

關於《笑說》,可以講Jazz,碟內改編了2首Jazz-Pop。爵士樂,和劉美君的女兒一樣,生於美國,到All Music Guide查過,文字介紹說,Jazz曾被稱為美國的古典音樂...

Jazz has been called America's classical music. Along with the blues, its forefather, it is one of the first truly indigenous musics to develop in America. At the outset, jazz was dance music, performed by swinging big bands. As the genre evolved, the music split into a number of different styles, from the speedy, hard-hitting rhythms of be-bop and the laid-back, mellow harmonies of cool jazz to the jittery, atonal forays of free jazz and the earthy grooves of soul jazz.

聽Jazz,不得不提樂手名字。
鍵琴 : Dave Packer
低音結他 : Mariano Q Lim
鼓、敲擊樂 : Johnny "Boy" Abraham
小號 : Elito S Valmowte
大號 : Allistar Gaskin
色士風 : Ric Halstead

不知現在還有沒有唱片,1首歌用多位樂手去伴奏,都是真樂器,80年代做得到。所謂Jazz,如AMG說:
What tied it all together was a foundation in the blues, a reliance on group interplay and unpredictable improvisation.

爵士的根源是藍調,騷靈而即興,周禮茂最擅於寫城市女子的怨,沒法坐正,苦不堪言,如情婦,人盡可夫,用字去到咁盡, 好desperate下。

曲 : L. Richard 詞 : 周禮茂 編 : Dave Packer
