Contam q no descontraido lugar Jabour...

..vivia o mais sabio musico do mundo, hehe! It is just satisfying that Hermeto is still performing concerts in the new millenium, despite the setback of his own ill health and loss of his beloved wife Ilza last year. This cd, FINALLY issued after years of the 2 disc LP being a high priced collector item is an incredible document of a live concert Hermeto e Grupo! The recording was made almost 25 yrs ago, and sounds as fresh and modern , like it was a recent performance. The "classic" Grupo featured virtuoso performances from the core members, Itibere Zwarg (bass) , Jovino Santos-Neto (piano/teclados)and the powerful percussions of Nene,augmented with Pernambuco and Zabele . Nivaldo and Cacau were the reed/winds on this set, and their beautifully powerful improvisations are inspired, BUT THIS EVENING BELONGED ESPECIALLY to "O Bruxo do Jabour"--he went just "alem de galaxia" weaving magical luminous improvisations , combining heartfelt beauty and melodic/harmonic ritmico virtuosity. Hermeto does his improvising mainly on the clavinete and piano, but the tour-de-force are his sinewy lines performed on the escaleta(also known as melodica), a small keyboard instrument that is blown into by the mouth, allowing for many wonderful techniques as "tounging",growling , vocalizing, etc. The finest example of Hermeto's absolute mastery of this instrument is the song "Fatima", with an emotional melody line in jazz-waltz time that soon developes into a double time hard blowing improvisation on a chord progression variance of the familiar "I Got Ritmo" changes(cant spell that damn word in English still!) Late in the "show", for an encore, Hermeto plays off altered blues changes, a rarity for him on his current recorded legacy. HUMOR(read-joy and playful feeling, not satire or musical comedy)--Hermeto is estaticthis particular evening, weaving and bobbing from instrument to instrument as he usually does. he scats with and in counterpoint to his improvising, sings polyritmos of nonsense syllables(check "Remelexo" and the extended version of "Lagoa de Canoa" to see what i am saying). Hermeto's most wonderful moment comes when he joyfully tells the audience of his inspiration derived from the beauty of the Montreux vistas, and that he wrote a nice ballad in his hotel room as homanaje. "Montreux" is the result, a beautiful flute melody with accompaniment of Jovino on piano and Bere on contrabasse. "Deus" achou por bem dar a Hermeto varias aptidoes--this is the usual thought when many "Hermetologists" speak of O Mestre. Yes , he IS an amazing composer,arranger, master of 1000 and one instruments. This cd reveals his "outro lado", his unbounding joie de vivre, bem humor, brotherhood and infinite heart. Viva o som, sempre!


Inteligencia, humor, virtuosismo, espiritualismo, que mas se le puede pedir a un musico. Si amas el jazz tenes que tenerlo

A self-taught musician, Hermeto Pascoal ascended from his humble upcountry origins to an international acknowledgment still unfair to his musical stature. Developing his ears from an early age at his grandfather's blacksmith shop, Pascoal used to pick up pieces of iron and hit them, trying to create music (not to emulate the harmonics of his father's eight-bass button accordion, as has been spread). This led to an unusual approach to music, where the tones themselves give a stronger conducting motif...
