//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

同性愛、というものは人類の文化と歴史と同時に存在したようで、

古代の文献にも斯様な記述がみられます。

 

今回はトラディショナル、

主にジャズの中での同性愛について注目してみました。

 

私もダニースミスもゲストのsintaくんも、リスペクトはあれど同性愛者ではありません。

念のため。

一曲目はジャズ界で最も有名な作曲チームの1つ。

Duke Ellington &Billy Strayhorn

EllingtonBillyStrayhorn1960

William Thomas "Billy" Strayhorn

(November 29, 1915 – May 31, 1967) was an American composer, pianist and arranger, best known for his successful collaboration with bandleader and composer Duke Ellington lasting nearly three decades.

His compositions include "Take the ‘A’ Train," "Chelsea Bridge," and "Lush Life."

wikipedia

Strayhorn was openly gay during a highly homophobic era.

He was active in civil rights before it became a popular cause.

Yet, as courageous as he could be, Strayhorn found it a challenge to receive a fair share of the unique musical achievements and the considerable profits he helped to generate.

On the surface, their partnership seemed perfect. Ellington’s ebullient charm led him instinctively to the spotlight, while writers speculated that Strayhorn shied from a more public role, both to maintain his privacy and to avoid being persecuted for his homosexuality…

二曲目は

Cole Porter

ssss

Cole Albert Porter (1891–1964)

was an American composer and songwriter from Peru, Indiana.

He was noted for his sophisticated (sometimes ribald) lyrics, clever rhymes, and complex forms.

He was one of the greatest contributors to the Great American Songbook.

…A review of a recent Porter biography recounts that in his later years, the composer kept "breaking appliances so he could lure cute repairmen into his lair”…
