«Posso cantar em Português»

DSCN6183.jpg

Após o espectáculo de ontem no CCB, onde foi acompanhda pela mesma banda do disco A Fortnight in France (Blue Note), JNPDI! conseguiu uma mini-entrevista com Patricia Barber. Oportunidade para saber mais sobre esta cantora/pianista, enigmática, que possui um estilo único e surpreendeu o público com dois temas: "Autumn Leaves" e "Groovin' High".

JNPDI! - You didn't play "Gotcha". I think a lot of people were waiting to hear that particular song...
Patricia Barber - I almost got it into the show and then I thought perhaps I already had too much new material so I put something older instead. But it was just about to go into the set.

JNPDI! - I heard this song is about a friend of yours who was getting divorced.
PB - It's a mean song, very mean.

JNPDI! - Which seems to please the audience...
PB - They like angry songs. I have two and they love them.

JNPDI! - Why do you play without your shoes? Is that some kind of a ritual?
PB - It's become a ritual. It started because it was hot at the North Sea Jazz Festival, the lights were too hot, and I almost fainted.

JNPDI! - And now you do it all the time...
PB - And now I do it unless it's very cold. If it's cold I keep on my shoes.

JNPDI! - I know that tomorrow you leave to Paris to play 10 shows. You are very popular in France...
PB - Yes, I guess so. I like the French, they like me...

JNPDI! - You also sing quite well in French.
PB - I studied French but I also love the Portuguese singing: eu posso cantar em português. And I love the language as well.

JNPDI - What do you think of the Portuguese audience?
PB - They're very particular. The Portuguese audience is very special. I notice they like it but they have a lot of pride so they don't give you love too soon. You really have to work and you have to show that you're trying and that you're going to give the best you've got.

JNPDI! - What about your roots in music? In your show there's jazz, pop, funky...
PB - Oh yeah! It's mostly jazz. You know, my father was a jazz musician but I love all american popular music: Frank Sinatra, Peggy Lee, Marvin Gaye...

JNPDI! - Some people were surprised by your arrangement of "Groovin' High"...
PB - That was strange, wasn't it? But you have to take a risk in order to find something interesting.

JNPDI! - Why did you play "Light my fire" which is a hymn song by The Doors?
PB - Because somebody told me I couldn't.

JNPDI agradece a António Gameiro, da EMI Portugal, pelo gential apoio à realização desta entrevista.

Não penso que seja muito correcto publicar uma entrevista em inglês amigo João. Nesse caso estaremos a renegar o acesso àqueles que de inglês nada percebem mas gostam de Jazz tanto como tu. O Jazz nunca foi um estilo musical de elite, por isso não o comecemos a tornar agora.

Abraço
