Tom Scott / Intimate Strangers

Intimate Strangers

映画「タクシー・ドライバー」のエンディング・テーマの演奏でも知られるサックス奏者トム・スコットの1978年作品『Intimate Strangers』。バックを固めているのはリチャード・ティー(key)、エリック・ゲイル(g)、ゲイリー・キング(b)、ラルフ・マクドナルド(per)、スティーブ・ガッド(ds)の面々。ジャコの参加はは《Loving & Leaving – Lost Inside The Love Of You (Reprise)》一曲のみ。アルバムを占める1970年代のクロスオーバー全盛期のサウンドが懐かしい一枚。

聴きどころは#1《part 1 – Sudden Attraction》~#3《part 3 – Loving and Leaving》までの組曲。中でもジャコが参加した#3《Lost Inside the Love of You (Reprise)》が異彩を放つ。出だしのフレットレス・ベースの音を聴いた瞬間に思い出すのは、ジョニミッチェルの『Mingus』に収録されている《God Must Be A Boogie Man》。ジャコのトーン、弦を爪弾く間合いもよく似ている。
