Brasil Sete— ‘Meditaçao’ At Thredbo Jazz Festival and Snow Bikini Contest* 2014

Ok, so there was no “Snow Bikini Contest”. But now that I have your attention, know that ‘Brasil Sete’ is an extemporaneous collective of fine Sydney-based musicians who are passionate about Brasilian music and great music of any genre. The band is comprised of Sandro Bueno, Fabian Hevia, Dane Laboyrie, Tiago de Lucca, Rafael Nazario, Andrew Oh and Jonathan Zwartz. Many of the songs performed were classic and lesser-known Brasilian tunes, as well as great originals by Tiago de Lucca. (Unfortunately, Sandro Bueno and Fabian Hevia, OUR FINE PERCUSSIONISTS cannot be seen in this video. But they’re there alright.)

*Rumor has it there was a “Snow Bunny Contest” taking place nearby.

If I Could I’d Send You Roses (Demo)

Unabashedly sentimental love ballad, the kind of plaintive tune often heard in the Country Music realm. I consider it a kind of English language riposte to the song [in Spanish] I uploaded last week (‘Si Yo Pudiera’, from my first CD); albeit they deal with different “if I could…” themes.

It’s a Demo, which means the actual recording of it will sound different. Heck, I might even try doing it as a Country ballad.

This will be part of my upcoming ‘Songs From The Sky’ project. Out this fall. Stay tuned. :-)
