专辑介绍:
这套双碟精选了杰西的前几张碟的主打曲,所以是一套不可错过的极致吉他大碟。

出生於巴黎的加拿大籍佛朗明哥吉他艺人杰西库克(Jesse Cook),出道短短数年之间仅以四张专辑的发行:「Vertigo」、「Gravity」、「Tempest」及「Free Fall」,便获得三度加拿大朱诺奖提名、三张金唱片、以及两度打入Billboard世界音乐榜 Top10的纪录,这分成就不仅同辈演奏家中罕见,其演奏与创作实力更让人不容小覤。
杰西.库克在法国南部与西班牙长大,六岁时举家迁回加拿大。他自波士顿柏克莱音乐学院毕业后便回到出生地法国与西班牙,於寻根旅途中受吉普赛名团Gipsy Kings所啟发,将自身顶尖的吉他技巧融合佛朗明哥与古巴伦巴舞曲的精神,成就了他专辑中独特的「伦巴-佛朗明哥」音乐特色。库克在他前三张专辑中所呈现出的这种介於传统与现代间,具有泛世界文化色彩的音乐,迅即吸引了人们的关注与欢迎,也为他建立了国际知名度。
  第四张专辑「自在沉沦」库克仍秉持他独特的「伦巴-佛朗明哥」音乐特质,但视野焦点更进一步扩大,专辑音乐更丰富多元。第六轨的「Incantation」既热情且神秘,兼涵中东阿拉伯音乐特色与吉普赛小提琴的伤感,是库克的全新突破;第八轨的「On Walks the Night」技巧华丽繁复,具高度挑战性;第十轨的「Virtue」与第七轨的「All That Remains」中库克敏锐热情之表现,也是令人迷醉不已。集中加收了两首多媒体bonus video「Mario Takes a Walk」及「Rattle and Burn」,展现库克现场演出及MTV中独特的个人魅力及迷人风采,有电脑之乐迷可有幸亲眼一睹。这张专辑在美国已进入Billboard Top 10,库克亦已因此再度获得加拿大朱诺奖提名,可预见之未来相信他必能在乐坛大放异彩。

Crítica do álbum
Ultimate Jesse Cook doesn't give fans any bonus material, not even the DVD content so popular with mid-2000s retrospectives. But, while it skimps on the extras, the two-disc, 26-song set is a perfect abstract of the guitarist's work for Narada. The 2004 live recording, Montréal, only gets one track ("Closer to Madness"), but Cook's five studio albums are all represented well. The set isn't chronological, but by mixing the songs up, Ultimate Jesse Cook heightens the crossroads quality of Cook's music. In one moment he's a flamenco master, the next a new age interpreter, and he explores Arabic sounds with just as much ease, and while Cook isn't afraid to streamline his influences for the sake of pop accessibility, he's respectful of them, too. For instance, the new age side of his sound never overtakes his curiosity and virtuosity as a guitarist and bandleader. Sometimes breezy synthesizers, and occasionally a percussion instrument, feel "painted in" for effect rather than meaning, but that's rare, and as he's proven over the years with Narada, Jesse Cook offers fusion, subtlety, and most of all evocative playing. Collection highlights include Tempest's title track, "Early on Tuesday" (featuring Sammy Llanas from BoDeans), Freefall's propulsive "Switchback," the organic/digital play of "Byzantium Underground," and the memorable Cajun touches in "That's Right." ~ Johnny Loftus Live Recording
引用Jesse Cook began his amazing career on Narada, signing with the label in 1994. One year later, he released his debut album TEMPEST. The album quickly sold over 100,000 units in the U.S. alone and propelled the rumba flamenco guitarist into the limelight just as “world music” was gaining broader acceptance among mainstream audiences. His astounding chops, sultry rhythms, and undeniable stage flair combined to make Cook one of the stars of the genre.
Since then, he has become an international phenomenon. He’s reached rock-star status in his native Canada, his Juno-award winning albums have sold over 1 million units worldwide, and his live shows are legendary. THE ULTIMATE JESSE COOK captures all the fire of Cook’s most popular hits from his 6 albums on two, specially-priced CDs.

If you want music that will get you moving, yet be unabtrusive when necessary, this artist and his blend of flamenco meeting new age is for you. I've been listening to Cook for a few years now, having discovered him after my search for more music to expand my interest in acoustic guitar.
Following Leibert, Cook is one of my favorites. He truly knows his way around a guitar. And while I can't say I equally love every cut on this compilation, overall, I enjoy this set very much.
I know, I know, if you're a flamenco purist or snob, artists like him make you crazy and you'd never think to add him to your collection! But, for the rest of us who simply want something that makes us think, work by, relax by, entertain by, and makes you happy...well I don't think Cook can be beat. I'm hoping this really isn't The Ultimate Jesse Cook, because that would mean there's not much more to follow and I'm hoping for great new sounds from Cook for many listening years to come.
