Trombonist Wycliffe 高登 has a nerve-wracking couple of days ahead of him. The former Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra member and Waynesboro, Georgia, native will kick off the 全国黑人艺术节‘今晚(7月14日)举行的年度夏季活动,现场表演了他对1920年代无声大发手游的原声带“Body and Soul,”由奥斯卡·米歇(Oscar Micheaux)执导。

高登’的乐曲,由16人组成的大型乐队进军,2004年作为纽约大发手游协会的一部分首映’庆祝保罗·罗伯逊。 LCJO在随后的大多数表演中都在他身边,但是这次’的不同。一群新的音乐家(洒了一些“Body and Soul” veterans) will play the music tonight at the Rialto Center for the Arts, and that has 高登 a bit concerned. After all, the demands of playing a live movie score are vastly different from the typical concert. 高登 arrived in Atlanta yesterday and will have only six hours of rehearsal time with the musicians before the opening curtain.

“拍摄这部大发手游的难点在于[音乐家]必须连续专注86分钟,” 高登 explained. “与大发手游的某些互动需要他们观看,以便他们可以即兴创作’在屏幕上发生。但是,如果他们’重新看大发手游,有时’很容易……只是被大发手游所吸引。如果我们在晚上进行大型音乐表演,可以播放音乐,停止播放,播放音乐,停止播放— that would work.”

大发手游明星罗伯森(左)担任他的第一个大发手游角色,并开启了一个充满音乐的节日。星期四,“The Best of Brazil”由巴西芭蕾舞团和非洲裔巴西打击乐团的歌手Cassandra Wilson和歌手Marcia Bittencourt共同组成作曲家Ivan Lins。将于周五晚举行的柯蒂斯·梅菲尔德(Curtis Mayfield)庆祝活动,包括印象派,狄昂·法里斯(Dionne Farris)和乔·吉利亚姆(Joi Gilliam)。这两场音乐会都将在交响音乐厅举行。此外,亚特兰大交响乐团将于周日在埃比尼泽浸信会教堂演出,整个周末,无数乐队将进入百年奥林匹克公园。

“Body and Soul” 是一个逃犯的故事,他伪装成乔治亚州的一个牧师。随之而来的是各种各样的灾难,那些易受骗的信徒和一个无助的年轻女子接than而至,结局并不令人满意。 Robeson扮演诈骗罪犯,承担双重责任,即使在狭och的幌子下,他也活出了自己的curr亵天性,还有他的善良双胞胎兄弟。

高登 hadn’t seen the movie before the soundtrack was commissioned but said he could instantly relate to its rural setting, especially the church scenes. The action takes place in a bar, the church and a home, and 高登 settled on a musical device for each place. Bar scenes are anchored by stride piano, and church is accompanied by a mix of gospel and jazz. Early swing and other period music permeates the soundtrack, with the only modern flourish coming near the end. When one of the characters journeys to Atlanta (the “big city”),乐队开始演奏John Coltrane的和弦变更’s 1960s composition “Impressions.”

“大发手游中发生的很多事情都对我说话,” 高登 said. “我可以听到本节或该节的心情。我想谈谈大发手游中正在发生的事情,但不一定要模仿正在发生的事情。”

高登 expects a warm reception for the film, because many in the audience will relate to its Southern themes. Apart from the performance and the short rehearsal time, he’大多是想再次回到南方。“我只是喜欢在佐治亚州” he said, “because it’s home.”
