ピーボ・ブライソン/ロバータ・フラック :名ボーカル(混声デュオ)

元々はロバータ・フラックが一緒にライブできるボーカルを探したところ、ピーボ・ブライソンを抜擢したというお話・・。ロバータ・フラックはすでに名声を得ていた歌い手だったので、実力のあるピーボにめぐり合えてよかったネ・・とっ言ったところでしょうかぁぁ。
唄の上手さに定評がある二人なだけに、唄そのものは太鼓判をいくつも押す状況なのですが、それにも増してバックを固めるメンツがスゴイ!??
今をときめくすんばらしいミュージシャンが多数参加している点もこの作品の大きなポイントであります。Marcus Miller,Greg Phillinganes,Richard Tee,Carlos Vega,Buddy Williams,Robbie Buchanan,Nathan East,Dann Huff,他多数の豪華演奏人陣・・。
それらを束ねるのが、Michael Masserらのスタジオの達人たちであります。
いわば、大御所と新人売り出しとレーベル側の意図が一致した結果、世紀の名盤誕生といったことが実現したのでありまんす!
なにも言わずにタイトル曲の"Born to Love"や日本でも多くの人がカバーしている名曲"Tonight, I Celebrate My Love"を聞いてトロケテ下さい!
当時のAOR陣営とFusion陣営のミュージシャンが見事に結合して出来た傑作としてもオススメであります。
