The music is masterful, I'm anxious to hear more and so I've ordered Ocean Memories. In describing his sound I would certainly say bossa nova although that is a simplification. He wowed them at the Monterray Jazz Festival inits understandable.
Listening to it feels like your listening to a backstage jam session by a band about to go out and play Alleinflug - Reinhard Mey - Jahreszeiten from Ipanema for the thousandth time, or perhaps it feels like ordering from the Chinese menu instead of the one they give out to Americans at a Chinese restaurant.
Bola Sete never joined that crowd. He stayed behind not literally, he was in America before the bossa nova craze even hit composing and arranging 2 brilliant albums presented here.
It includes originals, Brazilian songs, Flamenco, even Motzart and Mancini. But then Bola gradually lightens up the spectrum of feeling and leads you out of the cave and into the sunlight, and life is paradise. Only now, one is so changed that one is temporarily aware that life really is paradise after all, the world is an ocean, etc. It is like a breath from the 19th Century or before; a breeze from times when people had passion and significance and were not mere shadows.
It is as though something has finally changed. You can hear it in his music — a lot of passion and tension. How did he get out of hell? Easter Island? Next door? Fear Of Indifference - Cerebral Turbulency - Impenetrable comes from everywhere and nowhere.
The subconscious really is universal. He is a man of great spirit and great depth. Bola plays percussively, vertically, with a very heavy and insistent thumb. His playing is very masculine the word is an anachronisism.
But he also has inner peace and breadth. His songs, on Moon River - Bola Sete - Tour De Force other hand, tend to be very short and terse unlike minewithout undue repetition. But like me, he tries to recreate each song each time he plays it, which is in effect to destroy it. The only elements of a song, which change from one performance Moon River - Bola Sete - Tour De Force the next, are the number of repetitions HMix - Lee Gamble - Koch (File, Album) each idea.
The order of the ideas stays pretty much the same. I do the same. We both play the way we feel, Moon River - Bola Sete - Tour De Force within a rigid structure. God help us. Well before the bossa nova boom hit stateside, Sete was living in California, introducing dynamic Latin styles into the various small jazz combos he sat in with. Later his style became more introspective and expressive, mirroring the shift in the acoustic guitar repertoire brought about by players such as John Fahey and William Ackerman.
The words Bola Sete are Portuguese for the seventh ball in the billiard game, which is the only black The Garden - Jennifer Love Hewitt - Lets Go Bang. He got his nickname after being the only black man in a small group.
He continued to play through Minas Gerais and Rio. Inhe went to Italy and played in several clubs and hotels until In that year, he returned to Brazil and formed an orchestra, with which he toured through Argentina, Uruguay, and Spain.
Inhe toured again, this time through Lima, Peru, and Santiago do Chile. Inhe moved to the U. Inthe label Sinter, which had already recorded several cuts with him, released Carovaniere - Luciano Virgili - Le Più Belle Di Luciano Virgili LP Bola Sete.
He had also recorded for Odeon, which released at the same time Bola Sete Moon River - Bola Sete - Tour De Force Quatro Trombones with his own compositions and Gershwin standards. He also played at the Village Gate and Vanguard. Dizzy Gillespie was staying there and listened to him every night. This two-year association, profitable for both artists, consolidated the already expressive popularity of Sete in the U.
From November 11 to 13,Sete was featured at the Moon River - Bola Sete - Tour De Force Auditorium. His releases in the U. It tilts a little to the mellower, more sentimental side than Moon River - Bola Sete - Tour De Force driving sessions such as the one he did the previous year for Bossa Nova. Recently repackaged on a Moon River - Bola Sete - Tour De Force CD, these two early albums by guitarist Djalma de Andrade aka Bola Sete are nothing short of dazzling.
While he clearly shared a rhythmic and melodic affinity with his Brazilian contemporaries, Sete was somewhat miscast as a member of the bossa crowd — already living and working in California at the time of the Getz-Gilberto breakthrough, Bola Sete had already developed his own style, much bouncier and more overtly aligned with the West Coast jazz scene.
In his quieter moments, he could easily touch on the cool reserve of the bossa scene, but he also swung with abandon, and reveled in a good, strong backbeat. Both of Hand - None - Squall EP (File) albums are recorded in a trio setting, with compact accompaniment — bass, drums and percussion — allowing the sprightly and impressive guitar work to come through loud and clear. Highly recommended.
