Musica - Abbey Lincoln

Abbey Lincoln è nata a Chicago nel ‘30. Inizialmente cantante da ristorantini successivamente apprezzata e valorizzata ha lavorato con artisti del calibro di Max Roach (il marito deceduto nel 2007), Benny Carter, Sonny Rollins, Stan Getz e, più recentemente, Pat Metheny.
La considero la più bella voce (oltre che autrice di molti suoi successi) vivente del jazz.
Gli album pù noti sono “Straight Ahead” (1961) “Freedom Now Suite” (con Max Roach). Più recenti sono “Talking to the Sun” (1983) “A Turtle's Dream" (con P. Metheny) (1995) “Over the Years” (2000).
Fino a che non sparirà da Youtube godetevi questa bella interpretazione di "Throw It Away" brano, di cui è autrice., inserito nell'album A turtle's dream.



I think about the life I live
A figure made of clay
And think about the things I lost
The things I gave away

And when I'm in a certain mood
I search the house and look
One night I found these magic words
In a magic book

Throw it away
Throw it away
Give your love, live your life
Each and every day

And keep your hand wide open
Let the sun shine through
'Cause you can never lose a thing
If it belongs to you

There's a hand to rock the cradle
And a hand to help us stand
With a gentle kind of motion
As it moves across the land

And the hand's unclenched and open
Gifts of life and love it brings
So keep your hand wide open
If you're needing anything

Throw it away
Throw it away
Give your love, live your life
Each and every day

And keep your hand wide open
Let the sun shine through
'Cause you can never lose a thing
If it belongs to you

Throw it away
Throw it away
Give your love, live your life
Each and every day

And keep your hand wide open
Let the sun shine through
'Cause you can never lose a thing
If it belongs to you

'Cause you can never lose a thing
If it belongs to you
You can never ever lose a thing
If it belongs to you

You can never ever lose a thing
If it belongs to you
You can never ever lose a thing
If it belongs to you
