Le duo Helen Merrill/Gordon Beck chantait, en 1984, qu'il n'y avait ni larmes ni adieux. Et pourtant, sur fond de ballades ou de mélodies qui engendrent plutôt la mélancolie, le pianiste tisse à la chanteuse, dans une ambiance parfois churchy, une toile qui confinerait pourtant à un déchirement. Rauque ou claire, "I Love Paris", la voix si particulière d'Helen Merrill convient parfaitement au jeu de piano de Gordon Beck, qui arpège l'étendue de son clavier en ostinato brûlant. Son jeu extrêmement précis et classique, au sens propre du terme, donne à Helen Merrill l'occasion de décrypter des standards avec une inflexion qui se joue aussi de la coupure des phrases. C'est un récital qui ne succombe toutefois pas à l'intimisme et évite ainsi la tristesse quelquefois rencontrée. Pas de larmes assurément, mais des interprétations de grande qualité qui dépoussièrent quelques visites aux standards. --Jean-Michel Schlosser

HASH(0x9e3f39a8) étoiles sur 5 Lackluster Merrill paired with exciting, vibrant piano soloist. 22 juin 2008
Par Mary Whipple - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
(3.5 stars) Thirty years after Helen Merrill set the world afire (in Helen Merrill with Clifford Brown) at the age of twenty-five, Merrill is still going strong. A consummate jazz performer with a great sense of how to take a standard into new and exciting dimensions, Merrill has had a long and illustrious career. In this 1984 CD, with British pianist Gordon Beck, however, her solos are slow, mournful, and uniformly dirge-like, a characteristic which gets emphasized when she sings in counterpoint to the spritely, enthusiastic piano work of Beck. They are an unusual combination of talents and styles here, which makes Beck's piano solos particularly welcome for the listener.

Though the song selection is terrific, I'm not sure why Merrill has chosen to show so little energy in her efforts. "I Love Paris" sounds so sad that I found myself wondering, when she sang about how her "love is here," if she meant that she was there in Paris and that he had passed away. Even "Bye, Bye, Blackbird," a song in which the tempo really gets going on most recordings, remains a lament here. In "The Thrill is Gone," the thrill is truly gone. Beck saves many of these songs with his jazzy, rhythmical variations and happy feet, an effort that is so outstanding that I checked and was delighted to see that there are many CDs of his solo work.

Vocally, Merrill often slides up to her notes and then cuts off them off, instead of holding them for three or four beats as she continues with the melody, and she seems uncertain of some of her lower register. Though I have been a huge fan of Merrill for many years, this is a CD to which I am unlikely to return, except to hear Gordon Beck, whose work in "I Got it Good"--among other tracks--is especially brilliant. An outstanding pianist, full of vibrant energy, Beck's work is well worth pursuing for its own sake. n Mary Whipple

HASH(0x9e3ff9f0) étoiles sur 5 Pretty good Helen plus not so bad Gordon equals so-so CD 28 juin 2008
Par Eric Sedensky - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
In 1985, as I was putting together my first personal music studio, I lusted after the latest Yamaha reverb unit (SPX90, I think), but they were uncommon, expensive, and hard to get at the time. I special ordered mine and when it finally arrived, I started putting reverb on EVERYTHING: drums, keys, effects, voice, you name it. It made good material sound fuller, but it didn't make bad material sound any better. Doggone it! Well, that's the same as this CD. You've got Helen Merrill (who I am a big, and biased, fan of) singing through "super ginormous room" reverb, and you've got Gordon Beck (who I've never heard of) playing piano through "empty concert hall echo" reverb, and honestly, after a couple minutes of it, it's not enjoyable. I understand the producers' need to enhance the sound, since you just have one singer singing and one piano playing (although, inexplicably, there are tracks with an electric piano or organ and some kind of bass playing that I could not find credited anywhere), but I can't help getting the feeling that, with the CD having been recorded in 1984 and released in 1985, the producers also just picked up their first Yamaha SPX90 and were putting it through its paces at Helen and Gordon's expense. That said, overall sound quality is pretty good, so at least they knew how to properly use the rest of their equipment. The liner notes accompanying this recording are about the lamest I ever read, some kind of "I know more about music than you do" kind of essay translated from French, so I learned nothing about the performers or performance, which is a negative for a musician like me. Song selection on this CD is maybe not completely logical and it doesn't really give any insight into (what I consider) the unusual pairing of these two artists. Not surprisingly, I don't think either Helen or Gordon got to show all of what they could do. Just the same, I couldn't find anything to complain about with Helen's voice and performance (naturally), even with the deep constant reverb being somewhat tiring. Beck's piano is exciting and moving in spurts and jumps, but overall, I didn't hear him doing anything particularly interesting or skillful, and my guess is that my piano instructor (who is very good) could probably do better. I gave this four stars, but it might be more on the short side of that. What pushes it back up is my seconding the motion in The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings: Eighth Edition (Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings), which still holds true: Helen Merrill has never made a bad record, and indeed, this is a good, but not great, recording.
HASH(0x9e3ff75c) étoiles sur 5 A terrific duo album by Helen Merrill and Gordon Beck 1 avril 2015
Par PeopleInSorrow - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
This is al album Helen Merrill recorded with a British pianist Gordon Beck in the duo format with some overdub. Gordon Beck plays acoustic and electronic pianos and a few of the tracks both are heard. Helen Merrill overdubs herself as a choir member on the track "I Got It Good", a solo piece played by Beck. Of the nine tracks recorded, two are piano solos (including the aforementioned track). Each track is an afterthought of a duo track preceding it in a manner similar to the all improvisation long pieces the Keith Jarrett - Gary Peacock - Jack DeJohnette famously concoct from endings of standard pieces. The improvisation pieces here are given fascinating titles, "I Love Paris, Too" to the track following "I Love Pairs" and "I Got It Good" to the one following "I Got It Bad". I love the sense of humor that is presented in the naming of the tunes. As to the performance, it is top notch. In particular, the duo render extremely well the slow pieces "When I Look In Your Eyes", "I Love Paris", "I Got It Bad", and "The Thrill Is Gone". Being a big fan of the rendition of the piece by Chet Baker on his celebrated "The Sings" album, I have wondered many times., how the song would sound if Helen Merrill had been to sing it. The performance here more than satisfies my curiosity. Every single line she sings creeps into your heart. Just for these slow tracks, the album is worth the money. I was not much impressed with "I Got It Good" on which Merrill adds a choir - the piece stands it without the choir - but the other solo piece is excellent. I strongly recommend this CD to anyone who loves Helen Merrill's voice and slow ballads.

HASH(0x9e3ffa2c) étoiles sur 5 the best of albums between pianist and vocalist 20 janvier 2003
Par judithkish@hotmail.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
rarely does a pianist (one who in his own right is a superb jazz soloist (you should hear Gordon Beck with Phil Woods on their Wigmore Hall concert) completely gell with a vocalist. In Helen Merrill there is a perfect marriage between the two of them. I would encourage anyone to give this a try. Apart from this CD
Gordon Beck is one of the unsung heroes of British Jazz. Try to hear his 'Experiments with Pop' recorded back in the 60's with an unknown (then) John Mclaughlen). Gordon then went on to work with Phil Woods and Alan Holdsworth as well as many other international jazz giants. Alan is currently seeking to do an album of straight-ahead American jazz with Gordon this year.
