Hermeto Pascoal & Aline Morena – 06 – Mudança

Hermeto Pascoal (born June 22, 1936) is a Brazilian composer and multi-instrumentalist. He was born in Lagoa da Canoa, Alagoas, Brazil. Pascoal is a greatly beloved musical figure in the history of Brazilian music, known for his abilities at orchestration and improvisation, as well as being a record producer and contributor to many other Brazilian and international albums.

Early life and career[edit]

Pascoal in Buenos Aires 1978.

Pascoal comes from a remote corner of northeastern Brazil, an area that lacked electricity at the time he was born. He learned the accordion from his father and practised for hours indoors as, being albino, he was incapable of working in the fields with the rest of his family.

Hermeto’s career began in 1964 with appearances on several Brazilian recordings alongside relatively unknown groups. These now-classic albums and the musicians involved (Edu Lobo, Elis Regina, Cesar Camargo Mariano) established widely influential new directions in post-bossa Brazilian jazz.

In 1966, he played in the Sambrasa Trio, with Airto Moreira and Humberto Clayber; they released only one album, Em Som Maior. Then he joined Trio Novo (Airto Moreira, Heraldo do Monte, Theo de Barros) and in 1967 the group, renamed Quarteto Novo, released an album that launched the careers of Pascoal and Moreira. Pascoal would then go on to join the multi-faceted group Brazilian Octopus.

Lyle Mays and Alex Acuña

Lyle Mays (born November 27, 1953) is an American jazz pianist and composer from Wausaukee, Wisconsin. He is best known for his work with guitarist Pat Metheny as a member of the Pat Metheny Group. Along with Metheny, Mays has been a co-composer and arranger of almost all of the group’s music and has won eleven Grammy Awards.

Biography[edit]

While growing up, Mays had four main interests: chess, mathematics, architecture and music. His parents were musically inclined – his mother was a pianist, his father was a guitarist – and he was able to study the piano with the help of instructor Rose Barron. She allowed Mays the opportunity to practice improvisation after the structured elements of the lesson were completed. At age 9 he played organ at a family member’s wedding, and at age 14 he began to play organ in church. In summer camp he was introduced to important jazz artists.

Bill Evans‘ album Live in Montreux and Miles Davis‘ album Filles de Kilimanjaro were important influences on his formation as a jazz musician. He graduated from the University of North Texas after attending the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. He composed and arranged for the world-renowned One O’Clock Lab Band and was the composer and arranger of their highly regarded and Grammy nominated Lab 75 album.

After leaving UNT, Mays toured with Woody Herman‘s group for approximately eight months.

In 1974, he met Pat Metheny with whom he later founded the Pat Metheny Group. During that period he lived in New York City, so poor that he was “almost starving.” Mays has won eleven Grammys with the Pat Metheny Group and been nominated for four others for his own work.

Work

In the Pat Metheny Group, Mays provides arrangements, orchestration and the harmonic and metric backbone of the group’s musical signature. He occasionally performs on electric guitar as well. On the songs Forward March and Yolanda You Learn from the Pat Metheny Group album First Circle (1984), and in the concert tour for that album, he played trumpet.

His albums as a leader reflect a large variety of musical interests: Lyle Mays and Street Dreams build on the content of the Pat Metheny Group, while Fictionary is a straight-ahead jazz trio session featuring fellow North Texan Marc Johnson on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums. Solo: Improvisations for Expanded Piano is focused on solo piano improvisations.

He has also composed and recorded music for children’s records, such as Tale of Peter Rabbit, with text read by Meryl Streep.

The Steppenwolf Theater Company of Chicago featured an assortment of compositions by Lyle Mays and Pat Metheny for their production of Lyle Kessler‘s play Orphans.

He has composed classical music such as “Twelve Days in the Shadow of a Miracle”, a piece for harp, flute, viola and synthesizer (recorded 1996 by the Debussy Trio).

Kellylee Evans – Jazz in Marciac

Kellylee Evans – Jazz in Marciac

Biography :

The Canadian rising star singer/songwriter Kellylee Evans is a chameleon-like performer, whose natural charm and improvisational jazz vocal style have shined on her adventurous journey through jazz, soul, pop and hip-hop over the past decade. In that period, she released two indie solo albums of original songs in Canada, earned two Juno Award nominations (winning “Best Jazz Vocal Album” for Nina, her impassioned tribute to Nina Simone), captivated adoring French and Canadian fan bases and performed around the world, opening for such stars as John Legend, Dianne Reeves, Derek Trucks, George Benson and Willy Nelson. She is about to stun America with her U.S. debut on Motéma Music, I Remember When(July 22, 2014), on which she brilliantly refreshes and puts her stamp on songs by hip-hop royalty Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog, Kanye West and others.

Not bad for a mother of three, who went straight from singing in the shower to performing live at the Kennedy Center where she came in 2nd place in the Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition in 2004, as judged by Quincy Jones, Al Jarreau, and Flora Purim. The inspiringly motivated Kellylee threw herself into her dream of singing after enduring the death of her mother and has never looked back. Her unfettered determination enabled her to overcome being struck by lightning last year at her home in Canada near Ottawa. The rare incident made national news, and though suffering much pain and unable to walk at first, Kellylee didn’t cancel a single date. She chose rather to be helped on stage, where she performed exceptionally well while seated throughout her summer touring schedule.

“I inherited a real joie de vivre from my mother, and my French is pretty decent now. But music really is one language worldwide, as is dance. When I’m on a stage, I’m happy and want to share that with the audience. I keep reminding myself how lucky I am. Whether I’m opening for Tony Bennett at a big festival or performing in a little club in front of thirty people, this is still a dream.”

Kellylee has had her sights on launching her career in America since she began singing, and is poised to realize that dream with I Remember When, a signature album that showcases an emerging artist and songwriter with a truly original voice. Dynamic, hip and modern, her warm, soulful timbre reminds you of fellow true originals of her generation, such as Amy Winehouse and Erykah Badu. The album captures her phenomenal voice, effervescence and electrifying convergence of musical styles from her generation and before with an arresting combination of jazz, soul, pop and hip-hop grooves that feel simultaneously fresh and retro.

Kellylee created the album with co-producer/pianist Eric Legnini (a much in-demand artist/producer working out of Paris), whom she met through co-producer Sébastien Vidal, a key programming director for France’s taste-making TSF Jazz radio station, and for the popular Paris jazz club, Duc des Lombards. “It’s fair to talk about a soul/jazz aesthetic, because we all grew up with the same music,” explains Kellylee. “There’s a hip-hop feel that comes from our improvisational response to samples we use, and our originals carry these contemporary influences too. Eric has an incredible collection of old soul records. Sébastien knows jazz, not only what came before but also what’s happening today. When we started this whole thing, it was like we’d switched on some time machine.” All that remained was for them to give body and meaning to such an eclectic repertoire, and they have.

I Remember When, originally recorded in Belgium and released in France by Universal Music, comprises 13 tracks and features 9 originals penned by Kellylee and Legnini. The US version includes three new tracks: “Built to Fly,” “One More Lover” and “Again. ” The album opens with an unforgettable introduction to Kellylee – “My Name Is” – an original song inspired both by Eminem’s song of the same name and his classic rap hit, “Stan,” which drops as the second single on July 1st. The song is driven by a catchy baritone sax line and establishes her modern/retro jazz/soul groove. The irresistible melody of “Alors on Danse,” the world-wide club hit by rising Belgian rapper Stromae, forms the backbone of the next track, “And So We Dance,” which is available now on iTunes as the first single from I Remember When. The wonderfully choreographed music video of this song, directed by famed French director Thierry Theston, should not be missed.

With a thriving career in Canada and a growing legion of fans in France, the unstoppable Kellylee Evans is clearly destined to flourish in America.

John Zorn – Jazz in Marciac – Live 2010

John Zorn (born September 2, 1953) is an American avant-garde composer, arranger, producer, saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist with hundreds of album credits as performer, composer, and producer across a variety of genres including jazz, rock, hardcore, classical, surf, metal, klezmer, soundtrack, ambient and improvised music. He incorporates diverse styles in his compositions which he identifies as avant-garde or experimental. Zorn was described by Down Beat as “one of our most important composers”.

Zorn established himself within the New York City downtown music movement in the mid-1970s performing with musicians across the sonic spectrum and developing experimental methods of composing new music. After releasing albums on several independent US and European labels, Zorn signed with Elektra Nonesuch and received wide acclaim with the release of The Big Gundown, an album reworking the compositions of Ennio Morricone. He attracted further attention worldwide with the release of Spillane in 1987, and Naked City in 1989. After spending almost a decade travelling between Japan and the US he made New York his permanent base and established his own record label, Tzadik, in the mid-1990s.

Tzadik enabled Zorn to maintain independence from the mainstream music industry and ensured the continued availability of his growing catalog of recordings, allowing him to prolifically record and release new material, issuing several new albums each year, as well as promoting the work of many other musicians. Zorn has led the hardcore bands Naked City and Painkiller, the klezmer/free jazz-influenced quartet Masada, composed over 600 tunes as part of the Masada Songbooks that have been performed by an array of groups, composed concert music for classical ensembles and orchestras, and produced music for opera, sound installations, film and documentary. Zorn has undertaken many tours of Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, often performing at festivals with many other musicians and ensembles that perform his diverse output.

Zorn’s compositions cross many genres and he has stated “All the various styles are organically connected to one another. I’m an additive person—the entire storehouse of my knowledge informs everything I do. People are so obsessed with the surface that they can’t see the connections, but they are there.” For Zorn “Composing is more than just imagining music—it’s knowing how to communicate it to musicians. And you don’t give an improviser music that’s completely written out, or ask a classical musician to improvise. I’m interested in speaking to musicians in their own languages, on their own terms, and in bringing out the best in what they do. To challenge them and excite them.”
