Fine and mellow – un clip astral

Lady Day & Prez  

Solo saxofon tenor   Lester Young (la timpul 1.28) 

Este aproape de nesuportat felul in care ea   il priveste.  ( la 1.43-2.00) Este atit de disperat indragostita de Lester Young incit abia isi ascunde suferinta cind cinta  el.

Este o piesa pe care o pot revedea de zeci de ori.


Si cu toate astea Billie Holiday   nu lasa niciodata sa ii sara rindul la solo 🙂  (incepind cu  2.05 ) 

Pofta de   Lester Young mi-a fost stirnita  de filmul Pagina Opt a lui  David Hare- BBC Two espionage thriller, MI5 ,  cu Bill Nighy si Rachel Weisz. E 2011 si … disponibil

Gould   si o melodie frumoasa

Incercam sa aducem aici diverse "chestii": 1) Incredibil de frumoase si in acelasi timp 2) Necunoscute de tine (pe cit posibil), pe linga care, era pacat sa treci in viata asta, si sa nu te bucuri de ele.

  1. On December 8, 1957, Young appeared with Billie Holiday, Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster, Roy Eldridge, and Gerry Mulligan in the CBS television special The Sound of Jazz, performing Holiday’s tunes “Lady Sings The Blues” and “Fine and Mellow”. It was a reunion with Holiday, with whom he’d fallen out of contact for years. She was also in decline at the end of her career, and they both gave moving performances.
    !!!Young’s solo was brilliant, considered by many jazz musicians an unparalleled marvel of economy, phrasing and extraordinarily moving emotion.!!!!
    But, Young seemed gravely ill, and was the only horn player who was seated (except during his solo) during the performance.
    My man don’t love me
    He treats me oh so mean
    My man he don’t love me
    He treats me awful mean
    He’s the lowest man
    That I’ve ever seen

    He wears high trimmed pants
    Stripes are really yellow
    He wears high trimmed pants
    Stripes are really yellow
    But when he starts in to love me
    He is so fine and mellow
