Jacques Loussier and Jazzing Bach

有一年喺電視睇到Swinging Bach。之後一直被Jacque Louisser嘅爵士化演譯巴赫吸引,亦間接因為呢首而開始認真地聽爵士樂。如果你聽完唔想跳舞,就太可惜喇。


[好歌分享]But Not For Me


Chet Baker嘅喇叭自然係百聽不厭,但佢全盛期嘅歌喉更係一絕。

But Not For Me
Music by George Gershwin
Arrangement by Chet Baker
Lyrics by Ira Gershwin

They’re writing songs of love, but not for me.
A lucky star’s above, but not for me.
With love to lead the way
I’ve found more clouds of grey
than any Russain play could guarantee.
I was a fool to fall and get that way;
Heigh-ho! Alas! And also, lack-a-day!
Although I can’t dismiss the mem’ry of her kiss,
I guess she’s not for me.

She’s knocking on a door, but not for me.
She’ll plan a two by four, but not for me.
I know that love’s a game;
I’m puzzled, just the same,
was I the moth or flame?
I’m all at sea.

It all began so well, but what an end!
This is the time a feller needs a friend,
when ev’ry happy plot ends with the marriage knot,
and there’s no knot for me.
