2016.08.02

尾崎豊“I LOVE YOU”の英語詞カヴァーで注目を集めたシンガーが、キューバ・ジャズの重鎮セサル・ロペスをプロデューサーに迎え、夏をテーマにしたカヴァー集でデビュー。陽気なテイラー・スウィフト“Shake It Off”や安全地帯“じれったい”、果ては“島唄”や“Stay With Me”などを多彩なアレンジで取り上げ、優美な歌唱で曲ごとの世界に寄り添う。麗しいスロウからソンに展開する“恋するフォーチュンクッキー”が特にいい。


[English Translation]
Having gained much attention for her earlier English cover of “I LOVE YOU” (originally by legendary musician Yutaka Ozaki), the rising female jazz singer makes her debut with this summer-themed cover album featuring Cuban jazz icon&premier saxophonist, César López, as producer. Creating an extensive lineup with colorful arrangements ranging from the pleasantly sunny “Shake It Off” (Taylor Swift) to “Jirettai”(Japanese rock band Anzen Chitai), or furthermore from “Shimauta”(THE BOOM) to “Stay With Me”(Sam Smith), her sweet dainty vocals nicely snuggle up with distinctive world of each track respectively. Transforming from a graceful slow tune into Cuban son, “Koi Suru Fortune Cookie (meaning Fortune Cookie in Love)" is especially great.
