Nature boy - Eden Ahbez There was a boy A very strange enchanted boy They say he wandered very far, very far Over land and sea A little shy and sad of eye But very wise was he And then one day A magic day he passed my way And while we spoke of many things Fools and kings This he said to me "The greatest thing you'll ever learn Is just to love and be loved in return" "The greatest thing you'll ever learn Is just to love and be loved in return".

http://ameblo.jp/galwayera/entry-12180288267.html I have  been thinking that the tune  titled 「Nature boy」 differs from other King Cole's hit tunes like 「Mona Lisa」.  When I hear 「Nature boy」, it constantly reminds of Debussy or Ravel.  I guess that  the strange chords are taken into it.  Anyway this has very mysterious and lyrical moods. Of course this is awfully suitable to  Miles Davis. His ballad play is so wonderful that we can't criticize. The musician who is playing vibraphone seems Milt Jackson. I have to say his playing is also extraordinarily good. Well, a phrase which is 「A little shy and sad of eye but very wise was he」 is a part of lyrics in the song of 「Nature boy」. We Japanese had been learning English at least 6 years. But we can scarcely treat this complex and excellent rhetoric.

+高橋正博 I'm not very familiar with the persons you've mentioned. But Eden Ahbez was more of a "pre-hippie era" hippie. He lived outside most of his life and was a speaker for many of the known hippie values of nature and love, while being very philosophical and musical man. He has also written a bunch of other songs and poems.

+kirolajka Thanks for your intelligent reply. Because I'm a man of East Asia, I can't guarantee whether I  was able to comprehend 100% what you mean.  Being led by your good suggestion, I've immediately investigated about Eden Ahbez in Wikipedia. When I listened to the first part of "Nature boy" again,  I again felt the influences of Russian mysterious composer Scriabin. Especially a certain mysterious chord. Therefore, I could imagine that he was a  lonely composer who was filled with distinctive talent and sensitivity. By the way, Was Eden Ahbez wandering about U.S.A like the heros of  On the road of Jack Kerouac who the Japanese novelist  named Kenzaburo Oe had admired? Are Kerouac's" On the road" and TV's Route 66 almost same?  And King Cole was enjoyably singing Route 66.

The thing to judge in any jazz artist is, does the man project and does he have ideas. Miles Davis

Well Miles was a true creator. Didn't always love his persona but his individuality and artistry are spectacular and undeniable.
