Quincy Jones: The Secret Garden

De nuevo nos encontramos frente a un artista que ha sido y lo ha dado todo por la música. Asi es Quincy Jones, desde los años 50 hasta hoy en dia ha vivido y sigue viviendo por la música. La lista de artistas con los que ha colaborado es interminable, desde Miles Davis o Frank Sinatra, pasando por Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin o Michael Jackson, al que le produjo dos de sus mejores álbumes, "Off The Wall" y "Thriller". Sus trabajos han abarcado estilos tan diversos como el R&B, el Jazz, el pop o la Bossa Nova, consiguiendo un palmares envidiable; 26 premios Grammy, siete nominaciones a los Oscar y numerosos galardones y reconocimientos a todo un extraordinario legado músical como compositor, arreglista, instrumentista o productor.

Muy pronto artistas como Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Houston, BeBe Winans, Akon o Mary J.Blige le rendirán homenaje por su trayectoria a traves de "Q: Soul Bossa Nostra". Un disco con versiones actuales extraidas del extenso recorrido musical de Quincy Jones, aunque yo prefiero rescatar de ese universo lleno de talento y buenas compañías la canción "The Secret Garden", publicada en 1989 dentro del álbum "Back On The Block". Toda una caricia sonora con la ayuda de las voces seductoras de Barry White, James Ingram, Al B. Sure! y El DeBarge.


Letra
Tell me your secret
I don't wanna know about just any secret
I wanna know about that special secret {Oh}
Because tonight I want you to learn all about the
secrets
In your garden

I wanna read your mind, know you deepest feelings
I wanna make it right for you
Baby, show me
Let me share the mystery, oh
(Come on, come on, come on, come on)
Listen to your heart tonight
(Come on, come on, come on)
Make it alright, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Come on, come out tonight)

I know a melody that we could sing together
I've got the secret key to you, baby
Let's make music
Harmonizin' ecstasy
(Come on, come on, come on, come on)
Come on, sing it to me

Here in the garden
Where temptation feels so right
Passion can make you fall for what you feel
In the garden {Ooh...}
We can make it come alive { We can make it come
alive}
Every night, oh, woman {Every single night}
Your secret garden, hoo...hoo...hoo...hoo...

Oh, baby
I need to be with you, let me lay beside you
Do what you want me too all night
Gonna hold you
Ooh, baby, can I touch you there
(Come on, come on, come on, come on)
I can keep you satisfied, baby
(Come on, come on, come on)
Ooh, ooh-wee, ooh-wee, baby
Please, baby, oh, darlin'
(Come on, come out tonight)

Yeah, baby
I'll take good care of you
That's what a man is supposed to do
And I'll be there for you all the time
Let you hair down
Let me get you in the mood
(Come on, come on, come on, come on)
Come on, take me, take me with you

Into the garden
Where temptation feels so right
Passion can make you fall for what you feel
In the garden
We can make it come alive
Every night, oh, woman
Here in the secret garden, hoo...hoo...hoo...hoo...

And I never wanted anyone
(Woo...ooh...ooh...woo...)
I never wanted anyone as much as I, as much as I want
you
I want you to show me, I want you to tell me how you
feel
(Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, baby) All the secrets

If you think I am gonna take care of you
If you think I have got what you need
Sho' you right [And I want to take our time because
we
have all night]
If you think I am gonna be good to you
If you think I like what you do
Sho' you right (Oh, I'm gon' be so good to you, baby,
ooh-wee, ooh-wee, baby)

If you think I am gonna take care of you (Hey...)
If you think I have got what you need
Sho' you right [Let me know your secrets]
If you think I am gonna be good to you
If you think I like what you do
Sho' you right [Sho' you right, baby, you don't know
me]

If you think I am gonna take care of you {Ooh...}
If you think I have got what you need
Sho' you right [How does that feel]
If you think I am gonna be good to you (I'm gonna be
good to you)
If you think I like what you do (Oh...)
Sho' you right (Oh...)

If you think I am gonna take care of you
If you think I have got what you need
Sho' you right (Turn the lights down low)
If you think I am gonna be good to you

Madre de Dios !!! que gran tema...

Cuando lo he visto de reojo en mi blogroll me he venido para aquí corriendo... que grande es este tema, cuanto feeling y que grande el trozo de James Ingram, me hace poner la piel de gallina cada vez que lo escucho.

Saludos y gracias por este post.

No hay de que Mo Sweat, la música tiene ese poder. Te puede poner la carne de gallina, hacerte llorar, sentir pequeño o grande..., en mi caso, y supongo que como a muchos de vosotros, esta profundamente ligado a nuestro interior más vulnerable, receptivo y sensible.
Un saludo
