    Soft breeze from Brazil

    This is a tune I wrote a few years ago, but having got GPO has prompted me to revise and improve it. It's work in progress, but here it is in its present state. All the instruments are GPO. Comments welcome!

    Eugene - Very nice piece! For me it had an Argentine (Tango) feel. Everybody hears something different. More, please.

    Very nice work. Brazilian music is some of the best music on the planet.
    You have a giftfor melody. I am looking forward to hearing more from you.

    eugene...thanks for bringing it back!...don't hold out on us anymore - this is good stuff...it seems you have a very nice grasp of the brasilian language...at least musically...do you speak portugese as well?

    well, i thoroughly enjoyed this...thanks!

    Congrats on your piece Eugene.Some very nice Flute filigree work here.
    Although the rhytms of this piece are not typically brasillian,the harmony certainly is. As someone who has had to hide from the clave inspectors* from time to time,I realise that accuracy of groove is not always the primary consideration,when one is composing.
    The Marimba type sounds reminded of landing at the Airport in Guatemala.
    Keep up the great work.
    regards

    *The Clave Inspectors are a Mythical bunch,who turn up at gigs,and make comments like,"Yeah you see the problem is ....the bass Player is on 2/3 clave
    and that muppet piano player is playing the 3/2 clave.Now the way I would do it is........"

    Thanks Joaz,
    knowing from your posts that you are an afficionado of Latin music your comments are particularly welcome! Yes I appreciate that the rhythms are not specifically Brazillian, but am glad that the harmony is better in this respect. I suppose the "Brazil" in the title is a bit whimsical anyway.
    Actually the piece gave me a lot of trouble in that I wasn't happy with some aspects of the tune. I did 5 changes to the melody and think its better now.
    Thankfully I haven't come across the clave inspectors....yet at any rate!
    Eugene
