Description:

 

This LP is a special edition for the 25th anniversary of Kharma International

ELEONORA'S HOLIDAY is the musical yin and yang of spouses Eleonora and Arie Kuit. The result is a blend of jazz, funky orchestration and a razzlin' dazzlin' performance. Spiced up swing time classics as well as newly arranged tunes prove that jazz is very much alive and kicking.
NOW FIRST LET ME TELL YOU HOW I MET WITH ELEONORA. I went to a Dutch Jazz Convention and during diner I found myself seated next to Arie Kuit, a very amiable musician and -as I found out later - also a very talented composer and director. What struck me first was his watch, like mine of the well known Swiss Watch Company Ebel. So we had a nice chat about watches and music and after diner he gave me a demo CD. It was a recording of his wife Eleonora, according to Arie 'a hot vocalist'. You can perhaps imagine that I know many men who claim that their wife is 'a hot vocalist' and who want me to give a listen to their CD. But when I was home again that evening I decided to give a listen to this demo right away and I played it on my Marantz. And I could not believe my ears. Such a delightful voice, such beauty! Next morning I called up Arie to tell him that he and I must make a CD and a vinyl album together. And so here she is: AN EVENING WITH ELEONORA. Listening to her I am on vacation, somewhere where the beaches are pure white and the palm trees are waving. And I predict that she will be the major talent of our label.

Fritz de With
WHO'S ELEONORA?
From early childhood on vocalists like Billie Holiday, Nancy Wilson and Diana Ross have had a major impact on Eleonora. Not just for their amazing vocal skills, but furthermore because of their exciting and inspiring lives. This combination of vocal technique, drama and wit is what Eleonora calls 'Method Singing' (as in method acting). Eleonora has won several awards, amongst them the People's Choice Award of the prestigious Dutch Jazz Vocalist Competition in 2003. She is known for several Dutch radio and television commercials. She teaches singing technique, acts in theatre plays, does workshops and writes books based on her own vocal technique 'Method Singing'. Last but not least she is busy as a songwriter and lyricist, inspired by her lifetime icons David Sylvian and Pete Townshend.

HI FI REVIEW (1/5/2008) Author: 馮春木

An evening with Eleonora

這LP是Kharma國際慶祝成立廿五週年的特別限量產品。較早前我們己略接觸過 Eleonora這歌手,她的band叫Eieonora's Holiday也真有趣。Band埵釵o的丈夫Arie Kuit吹色士風,後者參與了所有器樂的編排 (頗funky)。

本碟是一個單日的現場錄音,有10首曲子。STS有張叫Twelve o'clocktaIes "Live" 的 CD是另一日子另一場地的錄音,看官勿誤會是一魚二吃。Fritz de With這安排真明智。

在2003年荷蘭爵士歌手比賽中,Eleonora獲票選「觀眾獎」,證明受歡迎。這堛滬絳皉連wing time經典也有些較新的歌的新編。Eleonora的演唱,情感豐富又生猛活潑(不是傭懶的悠閒幽靜),大概與她的偶像是Nancy Wilson和Diana Ross有關。優點是風格獨樹一幟,不模仿又能帶出樂曲的韻味。

一如其他STS錄音,本碟錄得很靚,爵士樂的現場味道極濃,氣氣捕捉一流。由於是LP,本碟自然有專四黑膠的味道,人聲與樂器音色均很像真,結像線條感一流卻不是誇張式「浮凸」,樂器質感尤其逼真,我雖從未到過演出場地 Twee Hondjes劇院,但STS錄音的空間營造力,把它再生了。說再「生」,因為那份活生、生動感可不是每個「靚」錄音都有的。Eleonora除唱歌也參與戲劇演出,從現場反應聽來,Eleonora的台風是相當吸引的。一般我們聽罐頭音樂時,會很留意Hi Fi效果是否優良,不過真正卓越的軟件,應是音樂家把你「扯」進音樂中,注意力不知不覺轉移了。這張An Evening with Eleonora做得到。毋需逐首歌講人聲怎樣、鼓怎樣、bass怎樣、吹口又怎樣啦,STS的German pressing LP你信不過麼?!如果你想「嘆」LP想feel good,本碟是佳品。

STS Digital 。 Kharma 25週年特別紀念版 Eleonora’s Holiday <>

整個錄音收錄10首經典歌曲,由爵士女聲天后Eleonora為名的Eleonora's Holiday精彩演奏,時間是2007年8月24日於荷蘭的一個Twee Hondjes劇院內演唱賓實況,Fritz de With親自在場負責收錄製作,採用Acoustic Solid、Clearaudio Unified、Benz Micro M2、Lehmann Black Cube preamp以至Siltech、Schoeps和Philips等名器來泡製。女主音Eleonora的廣闊音域歌聲,唱韻鮮活自然,吸引力強烈攝人,Arie Kuit領導的7人樂團分別以伸縮號手、小號及軍號、高音色士風、鍵琴及結他、倍低音大提琴、套鼓和敲擊演奏,音樂場面豐富生動。黑膠唱片第1面收錄有 Moondance 、 The Look Of Love 、 Saint Augustine in Hell 、 Singing in The Rain 和 Mercy, Mercy, Mercy;而第2面的5首歌曲分別有 Nothing' Bout Me 、 Don't Explain 、 Blue Daniel 、 Thirty-something 和 The Beat Goes On,全是熟悉的經典歌曲,Eleonora的開揚歌聲韻味充沛動人,演唱表演非常精彩,古董牛筋聲強烈渾厚滿載彈力,聲效攝人,加上數支管樂的艷光四射吹奏,聲音質感鮮明確切,瞬變動態表現一流,全頻段和平衡度表現真實自然。

總結而言,這一次特別製作的現場錄音,演錄效果同具 「Hi-End示範級數」。跟Eleonora's Holiday在STS Digital旗下07年出版的CD專集 12 O'Clocktales (編號是STS 611183),內容和錄音的時間場面全不一樣,歌曲雖有部分相同,但是黑膠唱片的音響效果明顯屬超頂班級數,黑膠「玩家」珍藏必備。

An Evening With Eleonora

在「發燒天碟」這個詞語已經被廣泛濫用的今天,我已經很少再把它放在我所評論的軟件身上,就算是要用也會用得特別小心,但對於這張「An Evening With Eleonora」黑膠,我實在想不出比「發燒天碟」更貼切的詞語來形容它的傑出音效!其買單睇牌面,我們便已經知道這張LP殊不簡單;首先,負責錄音的錄音師是荷蘭著名發燒錄音公司STS Digital的老闆Fritz de With?就算你不熟悉他的名字,也總會聽過由STS Digital製作,封面印上Marantz或Kharma產品的鑑聽王系列SACD罷!STS Digital出品的曲目雖然未必人人?聽,但錄音效果卻絕對是公認的發燒級水準,毋須爭論。而負責Mastering的母帶工程師也是一直與Fritz de With合作無間的 Maarten de Boer,當然更是這張LP的質素保證。此外,著名喇叭品牌Kharma特別選了這個現場錄音作為慶祝廠方成立25週年紀念的出品(除了LP之外也有CD),並且特別用上 「Kharma Akash」這個新品牌。

Fritz de With與Eleonora的夫婿Arie Kuit偶然認識,並且獲贈一張Eleonora的Demo CD,一聽之下大受感動,並且主動要求為Eleonora錄音!這張專輯是Eleonora與她的爵士樂隊在去年8月於荷蘭一間戲院「Theater Twee Hondjes」的現場演出錄音,樂隊除了Eleonora負責演唱之外還有7位樂手(Arie Kuit負貢吹奏色士風),位位都是技術了得的音樂人,而Eleonora的演繹亦正如 Fritz所言,把Swing Jazz的味道發揮得淋漓盡致,令人感動,只聽《The Look of Love》、(Singing in the Rain)、《The Beat Goes On》便已經值回碟價有餘。Fritz de With的錄音功夫有幾高當然毋須我多費唇舌,但德國壓碟廠 Optima Media Production這個名字你要留意,因為他們印製這張黑膠的寧靜度與靚聲程度皆有超水準,唔買肯定走寶!
