陪你到最後 爵士樂手林煒盛和流浪狗的故事 / 鏡相人間

林煒盛原是旅美爵士樂手,在紐約發行專輯,他說自己在曼哈頓沒有多有名,也沒有多慘,大家知道他是誰,還能找到工作,日子過得安然自得。2012年他返台度假,在草嶺古道撿到1隻傷重的流浪老狗,為了陪老狗,他搬回台灣。


爵士演出即興演奏,人生也是這樣,「我念台大哲學系,那是我的興趣,我考大學所有志願都填哲學系,本來的人生規劃是想念到博士,回台灣大學教書,但到大三發現教職根本都沒有缺啊,我就想把感興趣的東西拿來賺錢,我從小對音樂有興趣,我大學在外面學低音提琴,學很快,學1個月就幫老師在外面上課了。」

這算是天分嗎?他說不知道,但大學畢業後錄了幾捲卡帶和V8寄到美國申請學校,絕大部分都申請到獎學金了。1999年,他退伍,前往紐約州立大學主修低音提琴,奮鬥幾年,發行了專輯,也在曼哈頓Blue Note演出,被國際知名爵士樂媒體《All About Jazz New York》挑選為最受注目音樂家,「我在紐約沒有多有名,也沒有多慘,就是一個Freelance(自由接案)的音樂家,大家知道我是誰,還能找到工作。」這對於一個音樂人應該就是一切了吧?但2012年,他為了一隻流浪狗,搬回了台灣。
