I have just completed a course in Brazilian Popular Music at the Örebro University.
Haroldo Mauro Jr was one of the teachers. (He is a professor at the UniRio University
in Rio de Janeiro). Since the university in Rio and Örebro has a exchange program
he has been working in Sweden this spring. (His classes included the history of
Bossa Nova and ensemble playing).
I asked him if he wanted to play with me and maybe do some recording too.
The clip below is one of the songs we ended up recording.
Be prepared to hear great piano playing by Haroldo!
The song is our version of the Lyle Mays (Pat Metheny Group etc.) song ‘Before You Go’.
Hopefully I will be able to post more music from our recordings!
A big thanks to Jon Eriksson (on drums) for great playing! He recently got back from
five months in Rio as an exchange student in the program I wrote about above.
