Jacintha Goes To Hollywood 180 Gr Double LP


Mart ayına Jacintha ile başlıyoruz. Singapurlu sanatçının blogta daha evvek iki albümünü işlemiştim ki bu albümlerde tıpkı bugün konumuz olan albüm gibi 45 devir double LP idiler. Bunlarla ilgili yazılara buradan ve şuradan ulaşılabilir.

Jacintha Goes To Hollywood albümüne gelecek olursak sanatçı bu kez film müzikleri konsepti ile bir albüm yapmaya karar vermiş ve akabinde bu dokuz parçalık çalışma çıkmış.

Albümün adı her ne kadar Jacintha Goes To Hollywood ise de, aslında albümdeki tüm parçalar Holywood filmlerine ait değil mesela A Man and a Woman adlı parça ünlü bir 1966 yapımı Fransız filmine aitken California Dream ise bir Çin filmi olan The Chung King Express'te kullanılmış.

Bu albümde de müzisyenler dikkat çekici ve ortaya konan iş güzel, birde buna sanatçının muhteşem caz vokali eklenince albüm çok dinlendirici ve etkileyici bir çalışma olmuş.

For foreign readers a good review for this 45 RPM album as below by Alex Henderson;

"Most people who are not seasoned jazz listeners aren't going to comprehend someone as challenging as the late Betty Carter. The best way to get people who are "jazzophobic" to start listening to vocal jazz is to expose them to artists who are quite accessible but still have taste and integrity -- people like Jacintha, whose Jacintha Goes to Hollywood is a perfect example of a jazz vocal that is very easy to absorb even if one isn't a seasoned jazz listener. This 2007 recording finds the Singapore native turning her attention to songs that were heard in well-known films, and her torchy, understated approach serves her well on material ranging from the Mamas & the Papas' "California Dreaming" (a '60s smash that was heard in the 1995 film Chung King Express) to the Doris Day-associated "Que Será Será" (which was used in Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much in 1956) to Michel Legrand's "The Summer Knows" (from the 1971 film The Summer of '42). Technically, the title Jacintha Goes to Hollywood is inaccurate, because not all of these songs are identified with Hollywood films; Chung King Express, for example, is a Chinese film, and one of the best things on this album is an English-language performance of the gorgeous theme from the 1966 French film A Man and a Woman (or, as it is known in France, Un Homme et une Femme). Perhaps a better title for this 47-minute LP would have been Jacintha Goes to the Movies. But in the grand scheme of things, that is only a minor point. What matters the most is that Jacintha has delivered a musical tribute to movies that is as memorable as it is rewarding"
