美しすぎる「マンハッタンのため息」リー・ワイリー

春の宵、あたりは暗闇ではあるがほのかに甘い花の香りが感じられる。

久しぶりに「ナイト・イン・マンハッタン」というCDを聴いてみる。


優雅で洗練された都会的センス、香り立つようなお色気、しっとりした情感と温かみにあふれたリー・ワイリーの歌声に癒される。

ヘレン・メリルが「ニューヨークのため息」ならばリー・ワイリーは「マンハッタンのため息」といったところだろうか。

ジャケットがまた美しすぎる。白のイヴニングドレスを纏った女性がスマートでエレガントだ。

ジャケットでの会話
夫が彼女にささやく。「皆が君の美しさにため息をついているよ」
妻は答える。「あらそう。うれしいわ。あなたも素敵よ」

暗闇で目には彩かに見えねども、「マンハッタンのため息」リー・ワイリーのフレグランスの香りが頬をくすぐるような心地よい春の宵を過ごさせてもらった。

★リー・ワイリー
Lee Wiley (October 9, 1908 – December 11, 1975) was an American jazz singer popular in the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s.

Mini Biography


Trivia

Her father is a businessman and her mother is a schoolteacher.

Personal Quotes

"I schooled in Himachal Pradesh. I had taken up science and, initially, wanted to become a doctor. There are few career options for students of science though, so I shifted to Delhi and decided to try theater instead. I joined a group called Ashmita, and did two plays there -- Madhavi and Rakht Kalyan. As I was still unsure of what I wanted to do, I began sending photographs of myself to advertising agencies. I even took up classes in French because I thought of shifting to Paris, where models have always had a chance." (5-4-2006)

"I come from a middle class family, and my parents weren't too supportive of my career choices. My father is a businessman, and my mother is a schoolteacher. They would always discuss my career whenever I'd visit them, but they are now very happy as Gangster is doing well. In fact, Himachal Pradesh is proud of me! I keep getting calls from there. I'm very happy now, but I'm sure that when I'm older, I will miss being a student and not going to college. I should be writing love letters at this age. Instead, I'm working day and night. Then again, you can't get everything in life." (5-4-2006)

My biggest asset is that I know how to learn and that, I believe will help me in the long run.
