[專輯介紹]:

原名哈羅德.喬治.小貝拉方特,1927年03月01日生於紐約市哈萊姆區。二戰結束後,他勤工儉學在紐約戲劇進修所學習。 1952年開始以唱民歌作為他的職業。 母親來自牙買加的Harry Belafonte和在紐約West Indies社區的Irving Burgie一起度過童年,當然在加勒比地區有音樂根源,但他們的島嶼版本在很大程度上是想像的,儘管想像不到很好,他們的合作實際上已經過濾回到該地區的民間音樂。 Belafonte聰明,自信,巧妙的掌握了編排,幾乎憑藉Burgie的“Day-O”歌曲,一手將世界音樂帶入了商業流行舞台,而在Burgie,他找到了完美的歌曲作家,一個成分具有海洋陽光本身傾斜和流動的特質。 Burgie的幾首歌曲(以及Belafonte的版本)已成為絕對經典,包括“香蕉船(Day-O)”,可愛的 “Jamaica Farewell” 和 “Kingston Market”(兩者都是1956年出售百萬張Calypso專輯的中心作品,使Belafonte成為國際巨星)。來自牙買加的Calypso包含來自Belafonte隨後的RCA專輯的所有曲目,以及來自Belafonte隨後的RCA專輯的相關曲目,以製作一系列非常特別的牙買加民族藝術作品,儘管它絕對是西印度群島的感覺。這裡所包含的唯一真正的民歌是19世紀華麗的民謠“All My Trials”,它在20世紀50年代已經遷移到美國南部,並在20世紀60年代成為民間復興的主要部分。無論起源是什麼,這裡收集的歌曲都有一種奇妙的夏日氛圍,如果它們中的大多數實際上並非來自加勒比地區,那麼它們肯定會在那裡結束,而且這些曲調中的許多都已成為精神標準。來自牙買加的Calypso是目前Belafonte職業生涯中最珍貴的單碟收藏品。

It is interesting to note that the pop-calypso (as opposed to real calypso) boom of the mid-'50s was engineered largely by a charismatic singer born in Harlem and a Julliard-trained composer from Brooklyn. Both Harry Belafonte, whose mother was from Jamaica, and Irving Burgie, who spent his childhood in a West Indies neighborhood in New York, had musical roots in the Caribbean, certainly, but their version of the islands was largely an imagined one, although imagined so well that their collaborations have actually filtered back into the folk music of the region. Intelligent, confident and with a firm grasp of artful arrangement, Belafonte almost single-handedly brought world music into the commercial pop arena with the Burgie-composed "Day-O" song, and in Burgie he had found the perfect song writer, a man whose compositions had the lilt and flow of ocean sunlight itself. Several of Burgie's songs (and Belafonte's versions of them) have become stone cold classics, including "Banana Boat (Day-O)," the lovely "Jamaica Farewell" (both of which were centerpieces of 1956's million-selling Calypso album that made Belafonte an international star) and "Kingston Market." Calypso From Jamaica contains all the tracks from that groundbreaking release plus related tracks from Belafonte's subsequent RCA albums to make a wonderful sequence of artful, faux Caribbean folk that isn't particularly Jamaican, although it definitely is shot through with a West Indies sensibility. The only actual folk song from the area included here is the gorgeous 19th century ballad "All My Trials," which by the 1950s had migrated to the American south and by the 1960s had become a staple of the folk revival. Whatever the origins, the songs collected here have a wonderfully summery vibe, and if most of them didn't actually come from the Caribbean, they certainly ended up there, and many of these tunes have become mento standards. Calypso From Jamaica is the most generous single-disc collection currently available of this phase of Belafonte's career.
