Early Autumn (Johnny Mercers)

When an ealry autumn walks on the land
And chills the breeze
And touches with her hand
The summer trees
Perhaps you'll understand
What memories I own

There's a dance pavilion in the rain
All shuttered down
A winding country lane
All russet brown
A frosty window pane
Shows me a town grow lonely

That spring of ours
That started so April-hearted
Seemed made for just a boy and girl
I never dreamed, did you
Any fall would come in view
So early, early

Darling, if you care
Please, let me know
I'll meet you anywhere
I miss you so
Let's never have to share
Another early autumn


I will Wait for You (Michael Legrand)

The clock will tick away the hours, one by one
And then the time will come when all the waiting's done
The time when you return, and find me here
Straight to my waiting arms

If it takes forever, I will wait for you
For a thousand summers, I will wait for you
Till you're back beside me, till I'm holding you
Till I hear you sigh, here in my arms

Anywhere you wander, anywhere you go
Everyday remember, how I love you so
In your heart believe what in my heart I know
That forevermore I'll wait for you


The Sunshine of My Life
(Stevie Wonder)

You are the sunshine of my life
That's why I'll always be around
You are the apple of my eye
Forever you'll stay in my heart

I feel like ths is the beginning
Though I've loved you for a million years
And if I thought our love was ending
I'd find myself drowning in my own tears

You are the sunshine of my life
That's why I'll always be around
You are the apple of my eye
Forever you'll stay in my heart

You must have known that I was lonely
Because you came to my rescue
And I know that this must be heaven
How could so much love be inside of you

You are the sunshine of my life
That's why I'll always be around
You are the apple of my eye
Forever you'll stay in my heart


Rita Reys 是荷蘭人,號稱歐洲第一爵士女伶,有關她的故事可參考孫秀蕙《爵士歌‧爵士樂》第62~71頁。可是她在北海音樂節的表演(是2007年嗎?)還是很精彩,鬆垮垮的蝴蝶袖在空中揮舞又怎樣?她的語氣、斷句、情緒、嬌嗔、表情、微笑、眼神、節奏感、搖擺、舉手投足、中氣十足的即興唱腔,很快就讓人陷入音樂的愉悅,就讓人忘了時間,也忘了第二、三首並不常出現在標準的爵士曲目,它們分別Andy WilliamsStevie Wonder唱紅的英文流行歌。好聽啊。
