マリーナ・ショウ Live! in 高松

これまでに体験したことのない音楽空間でした。

昨年末のことでした。
あのマリーナ・ショウが高松にやってくるという!

同じアメリカのブラック・ミュージックでありながら、
ジャズとソウルはそのフィールドの違いからか、
両方をクロスオーバーするアーティストは数少ない。

そんな中で、マリーナ・ショウは、その両方のフィールドに
縛られることなく、縦横無尽に豊かな表現力で歌う稀有な存在。

しかも、1975年の彼女の珠玉の代表作
「Who Is This Bitch,Anyway?」の
メンバーがバックを務めるという!

ギターのデイビッド・T・ウォーカーは、自身のアルバムも数多く、
マービン・ゲイ、スティービー・ワンダー、マイケル・ジャクソン等の
多くの作品に参加する伝説のギタリスト!

ベースのチャック・レイニーも同様に、サム・クック、
アレサ・フランクリン、クインシー・ジョーンズ等と活躍した
伝説のベーシスト!

しかし、彼らはいずれも知る人ぞ知る存在で、
高松以外には、ジャズクラブの「ビルボード」で、
東京で3日間、大阪で1日というやはりマニアックな行程。

「ビルボード」は、大都会東京と大阪で座席数300程度。
高松では、サンポート高松大ホールで、キャパシティは1500席!

直前まで予定が立たず、ようやく2週か前に、
奥さんも娘も行けることとなり、
主催者の「街角に音楽を@香川」の鹿庭さんにチケットをお願いすると、
1階席なら最後尾、2・3階席も前列は埋まっているという盛況ぶり。

当日、学校から帰宅する娘を待って、会場へ。
しばらくぶりの本格的なライブだが、
高松でのライブがどんなものになるのか想像できない。
というのも、東京なら、本当に黒人音楽に精通した人がほとんどだけど、
だけど、どう考えても、高松にマリーナ・ショウを知ってる人は
1000人もいない!(笑)

開演30分前に会場に到着すると、既に大勢の人!
東京で、黒人音楽のライブがあると、15分前でも半分の人。(笑)
オンタイムでスタートすることはないし、
ミュージシャンも、観衆も、そこはなんとなくそんな感じ。(笑)

地元だけに、顔見知りも多く、挨拶を交わすも、
「この人、絶対マリーナ・ショウ知らん!」という方多数!(笑)

天候の加減で、スタートが30分近く遅れましたが、
これが東京だと、どうってことはない出来事。(笑)

定刻開始に慣れている人が多かったのか、ややピリピリした雰囲気の中、
「やあやあ!」という感じで、いきなり全員登場!(笑)

「遅れちゃったけど、誰も悪くないのよ。
 だって、わたしたちみんなここにいるじゃない!」
と、マリーナが見事一瞬にして、空気を和ませ、一曲目がスタート!

学生時代から数多くのライブを体験しましたが、
こんなにおおらかであたたかい雰囲気のライブは初めてでした!
派手さはないが、豊かな抑揚の効いたバックの演奏と、
ジャジーだけど、ソウルフルな慈愛に満ちたマリーナの歌は、
贅沢で芳醇なサウンドでしたが、それだけではなく、
会場に詰めかけた人たちの、大切な家族に送るような声援が
相乗効果となり、信じられない空気感を生み出していました。

それは、まさに音楽の「Magic」の瞬間でした!

主催者の鹿庭百弘さんは、高松の老舗の鞄屋さん「カニワ」の次男坊。
家業を継ぐために高松に戻るまでは、レコード制作会社で活躍し、
高校時代には佐野元春とバンドを組み、
今でも叩く、ジャズ・ドラムの腕前はプロ級!
その鹿庭さんが、数年前から音楽を広める活動を始め、
地道に活動してきた結果「よくわからないけど、すごくイイらしい!」と、
多くの人たちが鹿庭さんの顔を思い浮かべながら、
マリーナ・ショウのライブに足を運び、
鹿庭さんの音楽に対する愛情が、奇跡の瞬間を生み出したのだと思います!
演奏終了後にステージ上で鹿庭さんの撮った写真が、
その雰囲気を雄弁に物語っています。

鹿庭さん、準備も大変でしたでしょうが、当日は開始が遅れ、
相当ヤキモキしたことと思います。
しかし、鹿庭さんの音楽への深い愛情は、
音楽の神様からの素晴らしいご褒美の瞬間をもたらしましたね!
本当に素晴らしい音楽をありがとうございました!
