契克·柯利亚(Chick Corea)重新点燃弗拉门戈的火焰

Chick Corea & The Spanish Heart Band新专辑《Antidote》(Concord, release June 28, 2019),除了向两张前作《My Spanish Heart》和《Touchstone》致敬,专辑里还演了他喜爱的作曲家Antônio Carlos Jobim、Paco de Lucía、Igor Stravinsky以及新作品。如Chick Corea所说,「我的血脉来自意大利,但我的心属于西班牙。」

钢琴家及作曲家Chick Corea通常不被归类至拉丁爵士乐的范畴,但他对拉丁爵士乐的声音产生了相当大的影响及改变,自己也深受其影响。大约在60年前,Corea最早的一份工作便是以伴奏者的身份与传奇非洲古巴打击乐手Mongo Santamaría演奏。在之后Corea也发行了多张有着显著拉丁爵士元素的专辑,包括《My Spanish Heart》以及永恒经典之作《Spain》。

如今77岁的Chick Corea,除了持有美国国家艺术基金会(National Endowment of the Arts)颁发的爵士大师奖项,还坐拥将近24座格莱美奖(Grammy Awards)。眼下他最新组成的乐队,是以“The Spanish Heart Band”命名的一支八重奏。由这支乐队完成录制的新专辑《Antidote》将于6月28日在Concord Jazz厂牌旗下发行。

这支全新组成的八重奏核心首先是一支优秀的节奏组:来自古巴的贝斯手Carlitos Del Puerto,以及常年与Corea合作的老伙伴Roy Haynes的外孙、青年鼓手Marcus Gilmore。就在去年,Corea还与这两位音乐家组成三重奏,在Jazz Night in America一期特别节目中上演了一场引人入胜的音乐会。

其余的乐队成员还包括小号手Michael Rodriguez、长号手Steve Davis、萨克斯及长笛手Jorge Pardo和打击乐手Luisito Quintero。此外,两位知名的弗拉明戈(Flamenco)艺术家,吉他手Nio Josele和舞蹈家Nino de los Reyes也加入了专辑主打曲“The Yellow Nimbus– Part 2”的精彩录音中。

“The Yellow Nimbus”作为单曲在Corea1982年的专辑《Touchstone》中首次出现,是一首为伟大弗拉门戈吉他演奏家Paco de Lucía量身定制的炫技作品:

自那时起,Corea便不断地重临弗拉明戈文化,尤其是在他Blue Note纽约俱乐部的75岁生日庆典上。在之前一篇与《纽约时报》的专访中,我询问了他这种文化所带给他的亲和力:“某些东西在我见到Paco de Lucía时启发了我。之后我便开始接触其他弗拉门戈艺术家们,并被他们的音乐及历史所触动,再看看他们与我的世界有什么联系。当我和那些人在一起的时候,它会激发出我内心的某种东西,即使在我离开他们后也会带着的那种东西。”Corea说道。

《Antidote》收录了多首来自Corea从前专辑中的作品,包括“Duende”(来自《Tounchstone》)和“Armando’s Rhumba”(来自《My Spanish Heart》)。专辑同名曲则是Corea为具有超凡魅力的巴拿马歌手Rubén Blades所创作的新作品,他也对这首歌曲进行了深度地发挥。

此外,Blades也在Corea新作词版本的“My Spanish Heart”单曲中演唱:“我的心跳,始终跟着节奏舞动。那种感觉一直强烈地存在着,以致于它永远不会消逝。”至于专辑的名称,Corea表述取名为“Antidote”(解毒剂)与我们动荡的文化时刻息息相关。“音乐和艺术就像针对生活中黑暗一面的解毒剂。” 他在去年的一次采访中说道。

这个夏天,Chick Corea将领衔最新乐队The Spanish Heart Band前往欧洲巡演。他们的终点站,也是唯一的北美场次演出,将于8月3日在Concert Jazz Festival的50周年庆典上落幕。

The Spanish Heart Band – Antidote, due out June 28 on Concord Jazz, revisits songs from Corea’s classic albums My Spanish Heart and Touchstone with a multi-cultural octet, plus new compositions and guest appearances by vocalists Rubén Blades, Gayle Moran Corea, and Maria Bianca

Throughout his storied career, iconic pianist/keyboardist Chick Corea has explored a wealth of music from across borders both geographical and stylistic. Time and again over the decades he’s returned to what he calls his “Spanish Heart” – the Spanish, Latin and flamenco traditions that have indelibly shaped his unmistakable sound. Now, with his new album Antidote, recorded with his brand-new Spanish Heart Band, Corea once again delves deeply into the Latin side of his musical heritage with a stunning collection of musicians from Spain, Cuba, Venezuela and the U.S.

Corea’s debut release with the Spanish Heart Band revisits classic pieces from two of the bandleader’s most beloved albums, My Spanish Heart and Touchstone, along with new compositions and favorites by revered composers like Antônio Carlos Jobim, Paco de Lucía and Igor Stravinsky.

Due out June 28, 2019 from Concord Jazz, Antidote is just that – a musical cure for a turbulent time, bringing together artists from diverse cultures to make harmonious music together. In addition to this stellar new ensemble, the recording features guest appearances by the acclaimed Panamanian vocalist Rubén Blades and gifted singers Gayle Moran Corea and Maria Bianca.

“My genetics are Italian,” Corea says, “but my heart is Spanish. I grew up with that music. This new band is a mix of all the wonderful and various aspects of my love and lifetime experience with these rhythms that have been such a big part of my musical heritage.”

To embark on this vibrant exploration, the 77-year-old keyboard virtuoso has assembled a brilliant eight-piece band: Flamenco guitarist Niño Josele and saxophonist/flutist Jorge Pardo both hail from Spain and have both worked with the late flamenco master Paco de Lucía. Bassist Carlitos Del Puerto was born in Havana, Cuba and played on Chinese Butterfly, Corea’s 2017 collaboration with legendary drummer Steve Gadd – as did Venezuelan percussionist Luisito Quintero.

Trumpeter Michael Rodriguez and trombonist Steve Davis form an unstoppable horn front line, while Marcus Gilmore follows in the footsteps of his grandfather, the great Roy Haynes, as a master drummer (and close collaborator with Corea). The band is augmented by the fiery footwork of rising star flamenco dancer Nino de los Reyes.

“Continuing along the lines of his landmark recordings, Touchstone and My Spanish Heart,” says John Burk, Concord Records President, “Chick applies his creative genius to further explorations of Spanish and Afro-Cuban styles with an exceptional cast of musicians, to produce some of the most thrilling, dynamic, and deeply musical work of his entire career.”

With a band of incredibly versatile musicians and his usual wide horizons, Corea composed a set of music that draws from a wealth of sources – jazz and Latin music, naturally, but also classical, funk and fusion elements. “This is the mixer,” he says, pointing to his head. “I drink in the culture around me, which is rich in ideas. I’m excited about this record because there are a lot of influences that come through in it.”

There has been a Latin tinge to Corea’s music almost as long as he’s been performing. His first gig upon arriving in New York City in 1960 was with the influential Cuban-born percussionist Mongo Santamaría at Birdland. As he recalls, “Four doors up from Birdland on Broadway was the Palladium, where you could hear people like Tito Puente, Machito, Ray Barretto, Eddie Palmieri. I used to jump out of my gig [during breaks] and go stand in front of the bandstand at the Palladium. So the jazz scene that I came up in was very much a part of what I call my ‘Spanish Heart.’”

Corea has made no secret for his love of Spanish, Latin and flamenco music. In 1972 he debuted perhaps his most well-known composition, “Spain,” inspired by Joaquin Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez. The piece has been recorded countless times since, including versions by de Lucía and Tito Puente. In 1976 he released My Spanish Heart, an innovative session combining jazz fusion with traditional Latin music; it went on to become one of Corea’s most successful albums and is universally considered a classic. 16 years later, he visited similar terrain on the even more expansive Touchstone, which spotlights his collaboration with de Lucía.

Corea revisits songs from both classic albums on Antidote. The title song from My Spanish Heart opens with a lush, moving vocal choir recorded by Corea’s longtime musical and life partner, Gayle Moran Corea. Stark piano chords lead into the familiar song, rendered here with an emotionally stirring vocal by Rubén Blades. The band then breaks into the electrifying dance of “Armando’s Rhumba,” a song penned by Corea in tribute to his father from the same album.

From Touchstone, Corea first offers an atmospheric rendition of “Duende,” with an evocative palette featuring Pardo’s soaring flute and thrilling interplay between the eloquent horns of Davis and Rodriguez. Quintero’s percussion dialogues with the rapid-fire patter of Nino de los Reyes’ dancing feet to open “Yellow Nimbus,” originally written as a duet for Corea and de Lucía. Here the pianist’s flurries are joined by the flamenco master’s virtuosic protégé, Niño Josele.

De Lucía composed “Zyryab,” named for the Persian-African poet and musician from 9th-century Spain who was credited with introducing the lute to the Spanish court, destined to evolve into the flamenco guitar. Corea recorded the original version with the guitarist in 1990 and revisits its blend of Spanish and Middle Eastern influences in intriguing fashion here.

Another blend of disparate genres shines through on “Pas de Deux,” a piece from Stravinsky’s ballet “The Fairy’s Kiss.” Corea’s solo piano arrangement weaves into his original piece “Admiration,” celebrating the feeling the bandleader has towards not only his inspirations but the remarkable ensemble that navigate his tricky stylistic mergers. The final composition Corea chooses to explore is Jobim’s classic “Desafinado,” which features the soulful vocals of Maria Bianca relating the tale of a love affair gone slightly out of tune.

The album opens with the title track, “Antidote,” a heartfelt entreaty written by Corea for Blades. The pianist’s lyric is a mission statement, defying the divisive issues we face with the fact that, “Music, musicians and all artists are the antidote to man’s inhumanity to man.” The music on Antidote captures that feeling with healing camaraderie, with the added spirit that Corea embraces in his lyric for “My Spanish Heart.”
