歌手简介:
  荷兰爵士天后Laura Fygi以唱Vocal 爵士著称,她的声线充满因时光沉淀而积累的浑厚的沧桑感,相比人们传统概念里爵士的慵懒忧郁,她优雅舒畅的女声将爵士的自由随意演绎得更加温暖轻松。 Laura Fygi的音乐从严格意义上说,已经不能算是标准的爵士乐了,而是一般人比较容易接受的easy listening,因此她也就拥有了更多的乐迷。

  相比于许多其他爵士女歌手在歌唱技巧上的成熟与精进,Laura Fygi的唱腔没有花俏夸张,她也从不在歌唱的技巧上玩弄一些小小的花招来展现声线的优美与力量,她的唱腔向来是平实而优雅的,一派深情浪漫成为征服爵士乐迷们的一把利器,也因此奠定她在爵士乐界抒情天后的不二地位。

  Laura Fygi的乐风融合热情的拉丁风味与优雅的欧洲气质,平易近人的旋律搭配上她温暖轻松的唱腔,一直保持一贯的风格,让人在她营造的爵士氛围中享受明媚的孤独与甜蜜的忧伤。

·············

  Laura Fygi1955年8月27日出生在荷兰首府阿姆斯特丹,父亲是飞利浦电器的技术人员,母亲是来自埃及的肚皮舞娘。Laura Fygi的母亲当年曾因婚姻而放弃了自己所热爱的表演事业,所以当少女时代的Laura Fygi表现出对歌唱、表演的强烈的兴趣后,母亲成为了第一个鼓励她的人,为她安排了歌唱、钢琴等课程的学习,让少女时代的她就接受了较为系统的在音乐方面的训练。

  20岁时Laura Fygi被荷兰籍的制作人Peter van Asten和Richard Dubios发掘,邀她加入由多种不同国籍乐手组成的团体“Terra”。该团在发行两支不是很受欢迎的单曲后解散。而歌声充满灵性的Laura Fygi,则随着制作人埋首筹划未来演唱与录音的计划。Laura Fygi

  同另两个女孩搭配组成摇滚乐团Centerfold,他们从第一天起即展开疯狂的表演。当时正是性学论者挞伐女性最严重的时候,这支女性团体的出现向世人证明了性感同愚昧肤浅没有必然的关系。在接下来的七年中,Centerfold走遍荷兰、欧洲、日本各表演场所,且座无虚席。

  此时的Laura Fygi可谓春风正得意,乐团的巨大成功使她的音乐才能得以充分展现,而她甜美的歌喉也成为了许多人心中念念不忘的迷人之音。

  风化绝代的爵士天后

  Centerfold解散之后,Laura Fygi开始走唱生涯。一次偶然的在爵士酒吧的即兴演唱,被她后来在音乐上的制作人搭档Herman发现,Herman立即为Laura Fygi筹划了第一张专辑《Introducting》,以爵士女歌手的形象全新登场。这张《Introducting》不仅全球24国发行,更让 Laura Fygi成为荷兰第一位登上Bilboard的歌手。这张专辑在各地部造成轰动,佳评如潮,这是Laura Fygi脱离Centerfold单飞之后获得的第一次成功。

  同时自第一张专集起,Laura Fygi便与日本音乐界结下不解之缘,里头一首〈Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue〉更被选为日剧《再一次说再见》的主题曲,同年她趁著日本乐迷对她的高度兴趣,与渡边贞夫一同访日,冶艳的外型与甜美的歌喉,被日本乐界誉为新型态爵士乐手的代表。

  97年的《Watch What Happens》专辑是Laura Fygi事业的转折点。她在唱片中与法国传奇作曲家兼钢琴手Michel Legrand合作,Michel Legrand的经典创作与Laura感性浪漫的演绎有如天作之合,因此这张唱片被誉为Laura的顶峰之作。

  当99年的《The Latin Touch》及2001年的《Change》专辑推出猴后,美洲方面的乐迷亦完全接受了这位才华洋溢并且性格突出的爵士女歌手。她的唱片不但暢銷,而且在各地举行的大、小型演唱会都是叫好又叫座。

  2002年3月在英国传奇爵士会所Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club中的连续七晚的现场表演,则真正奠定了Laura Fygi天后级的爵士歌手的地位。  

 

  有人说爵士是一种自由的艺术,一个个音符轻灵跳动,可以随性摇摆也可以毫无章法,全凭一时的感觉与情绪。爵士亦是一种生活态度,听爵士的人可以让情感慢慢流泻,不管是忧伤还是喜悦,那种缓慢沉着实在是恰到好处,让人无心于喧嚣尘世的打扰,将所有的情绪一点一滴自然宣泄。

  拉紧窗帘,开一盏昏黄的台灯,咖啡的香气氤氲中,随爵士轻轻摇摆,于是爵士通常是忧郁而伤情的,却又不是每一个唱爵士的人都给人以如此“blue”的感觉。抒情爵士天后Laura Fygi便是一个典型的代表了。

  这里为大家提供她的七张专辑的完整试听链接,希望大家能喜欢。
