Bach o întîlneşte pe Nina Simone

    5

    E sfîrşit de an. Sînt momente cînd te simţi în afara timpului. Te încearcă o senzaţie de imponderabilitate şi anii din urmă se transformă în crengile unui pom de Crăciun de care stau atîrnate amintirile tale, ca nişte globuri vii. Printre colinde se aude vocea Ninei Simone. Jazz as played in an exclusive side street club. Merry Christmas to everyone!

    Love me or leave me (1960)

    Love me or leave me and let me be lonely
    You won’t believe me but I love you only
    I’d rather be lonley than happy with somebody else

    You might find the night time the right time for kissing
    Night time is my time for just reminiscing
    Regretting instead of forgetting with somebody else

    There’ll be no one unless that someone is you
    I intended to be independently blue

    I want your love, don’t wanna borrow
    Have it today to give back tomorrow
    Your love is my love
    There’s no love for nobody else

    Say, love me or leave me and let me be lonely
    You won’t believe me but I love you only
    I’d rather be lonley than happy with somebody else

    You might find the night time the right time for kissing
    Night time is my time for just reminiscing
    Regretting instead of forgetting with somebody else

    There’ll be no one unless that someone is you
    I intended to be independently blue

    Say I want your love, don’t wanna borrow
    Have it today to give back tomorrow
    Your love is my love
    My love is your love
    There’s no love for nobody else

    When I Was In My Prime (1961)

    When I was in my prime, I flourished like a vine.
    Along there came a false young man, come stole the heart of mine.
    Come stole the heart of mine

    The gardener standing by, three offers he made me.
    The pink, the violet, and red rose, which I refused all three.
    Which I refused all three

    The pink’s no flower at all, it fades away too soon.
    The violet is too pale a bloom, I think I’ll wait till June
    I think I’ll wait till June

    In June the red rose blooms, but it`s not the flower for me.
    It’s then I’ll uproot the red, red rose, and plant a willow tree.
    And plant a willow tree

    And the willow tree shall weep and the willow tree shall mourn.
    How I wish I were in my young man’s arms who stole the heart of mine.
    Who stole the heart of mine

    And if I’m spared young year more, and if God should grant me grace.
    I’ll weep a bowl of crystal tears, and wash his deceitful face.
    And wash his deceitful face.

    For A While (1988)

    Lost in day to day
    turned another way
    with a laugh, a kind hello
    some small talk with those I know
    I forget that I’m not over you
    for a while

    A wave an easy grin
    a smile to put them in
    with other lives to listen to
    and some work I’ve got to do
    I forget that I’m not over you
    for a while

    Days go by with no empty feeling
    until I remember you’re gone

    People say to me, you need company
    when you have some time to spend
    drop around and meet a friend
    they forget that I’m not over you
    for a while
    they forget that I’m not over you
    for a while

    În 1985 am absolvit facultatea de geologie din București. După trei ani de stagiatură la mina de cărbune din Anina, în Banat, am renunțat la geologie și am învățat să fiu programator software. Am plecat din România în 1990, toamna. Am trăit patru ani în Anglia, 19 ani în Canada și aproape doi ani în Germania. M-am întors nu demult în țară. În 2007 am creat blogul Patrupedbun.net, care în 2010 a fuzionat cu blogul Dreapta.net. Din această fuziune s-a născut ILD.

    1. Multam fain. Sigur ca merg Florile Dalbe. O sa incerc sa gasesc niste colinde traditionale. Eu am o slabiciune pentru divele de jazz. Bine, pentru jazz in general, dar sint citeva femei divine in arta asta. Nu neaparat vocea in sine, cit ce reusesc sa transmita prin fiecare sunet.
      cheers

    2. Your gift is most welcome. Really appreciated.
      Eu iti ofer doua nume. Madeleine Peyroux si Susana Baca. Cred ca o stii pe prima, are o voce similara cu Billie Holiday.
      A doua e mai speciala si mai putin cunoscuta. E din Peru, nu cinta jazz per-se, e de obicei categorizata drept worldbeat. Eu as pune-o la priceless.
