Album Description

Legendary Brazilian musician, Hermeto Pascoal, a man described by Miles Davis as one of the most important musicians on the planet, is featured on this CD with some of the finest musicians in Australia and students from the jazz studies program at Monash University. In March 2012, Hermeto and his band were artists in residence at the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music, where he participated in workshops, rehearsals and the recording of this CD. With the help of Australian guitarist and expert in Brazilian music Doug deVries, Monash staff - Robert Burke, Jordan Murray, Julien Wilson and a cameo appearance from Italian musician Mirko Guirrini the line up is impressive. Students from the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music played an important role in the recording and rehearsal process whilst being mentored by a legend of music – a once in a lifetime opportunity! All compositions on the Cd are Hermeto Pascoal’s. As part of the rehearsal process, Hermeto methodically ‘worked’ through each arrangement and each voicing for the horn arrangements. Doug deVries translating whilst Jordan Murray formulating parts and further arranging to suit the instrumentation.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
