Diane Schuur "Blues for Schuur"

Bem, como já havia dito anteriormente, estava em débito com algumas cantoras, músicas e artistas aqui na alcatéia e isso tava me incomodando, apesar de ter bastante material feminino pra postar.

Tenho uma desculpa esfarrapada, que devido aos inúmeros restauros que tive de fazer passei tudo pra discos e ficaram mais distantes de mim, mas não justifica deixar de fora algo como este trabalho de Diane Schuur.

Não vi ainda algo tão singelo, tão spiritual, ou tão sentimental, a não ser nas negras mais antigas que entoavam seus cãnticos, qdo na lavoura de algodão do Mississipi não podiam chorar as mortes de seus maridos e filhos porque seriam mortas tb, e então acharam uma forma de lamentarem seus entes queridos brutalizados pela cor da pele.

Enquanto trabalhavam, viam aquelas cenas de horror, deles empalados ou espetados na lavoura pra servir de exemplo aos outros negros, do que aconteceria, caso desobedecessem aos seus "donos".

Sei que muitos conhecem este fato, mas tb sei que muitos não e foi aí nesses lamentos que nasceu o Blues, e por isso discuti com teóricos que classificam isso ou aquilo como mais requintado e etc, mas a questão é a origem; o Blues é a origem porque a primeira vez que se falou este nome "Blues" foi num escrito de uma mulher negra que dizia mais ou menos assim: - Hoje de tanta dor estou sentindo algo como.......como......como um blues em minhas vida, e isso teve um significado nas primeiras traduções como sentimento de dor, e assim ficou; o Blues não é triste, o

Blues é verdadeiro, conta e canta o amor e a dor, a verdade sempre e as histórias dos que antes vieram.

Diane Shuur playing the Blues everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Obs: Atualizando o post e o link uma boa semana a todos.
Dead or AliveDiane Schuur (b. December 10, 1953 in Tacoma, Washington) is an American jazz singer and pianist.

King, Dizzy Gillespie, Maynard Ferguson, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, and Quincy Jones
Diane Schuur grew up in suburban Seattle, Washington and was encouraged by both her parents to sing. Her early childhood music heroines were Sarah Vaughan and Dinah Washington. Schuur had her first "gig" at Tacoma's Holiday Inn at age ten in which she sang country music. Later attending the Washington State School for the Blind where she performed original material and wowed audiences with her playful and distinctive voice. She started performing songs she wrote starting at sixteen. Her "big break" came when Stan Getz became positive about her work on hearing her sing "Amazing Grace" at legendary Monterey Jazz Festival in 1979, returned there again in '88 and '91. In 1982, Getz asked her to join him at a performance at the White House. Nancy Reagan invited her to perform again as a vocalist with the Count Basie Orchestra in 1987. Stan Getz later played on Schuur's first three albums, Deedles (1984), Schuur Thing (1985) and Timeless (1988).
Schuur's debut album, Deedles, was released in 1984, the first of several recordings to showcase her vocal abilities. In 1985, while on tour in the Far East, Schuur met B.B. King when the two of them played a music festival in Tokyo. Schurr and King eventually made an album together, Heart to Heart released May of 1994, which top the Billboard charts to number one. Twelve of Schuur's albums have reached the Top 10 Jazz Albums on Billboard history charts, including her latest Diane Schuur: Live In London (2006) She received her first Grammy for the album Timeless (1986), and the following year received another, for Diane Schuur & the Count Basie Orchestra (1987).

Schuur proved her staying power through the 1990s and into the 2000s, first with her 1991 follow up to Talkin' 'Bout You, Pure Schuur, and then with nearly an album a year from then on, including In Tribute (1992), Love Songs (1993), Heart to Heart (1994), Love Walked In (1995), Blues for Schuur (1997), Music Is My Life (1999), Friends for Schuur (2000), and Swingin' for Schuur (2001).
