As in our former recordings in Navigare we continue with two main intentions-musical
variety and live atmosphere in our studio sessions.
The creativity of my fellow musicians shaped the recordings in a very spontaneous way.
In memory of my friend and mentor Joachim Ernst Berendt.
Traditional music of Eastern Europe gave me the inspiration, but unintentionally all
changed into a
samba rhythm -sorry!
Imagine the coasts and landscapes of Norway, so did I!
Background of course is American Countrymusic, but sometimes it sounds unusual.
Si Maritau Rosa
A very well known traditional song from sicily-mix it with a breeze of improvisationbasta!
Chega de Saudade
Not much to say about this wonderful song composed by a giant, marking the beginning
of the bossa nova era-muito obrigado!
This choro of Pixinguinha, another great composer and musician from Brasil, is full of
the joys of brasilian life…I hope you will agree!
Alegria in E
As the title says: merry mood, here’s to life…simple chords in major but a little bit
An impressive sephardic melody from Morocco. I added an intro that might bring in
some greek spirit and of course there is enough place for improvisation like in all other
tracks of this album. Thanks to Igor Pomykalo who made me aware of it.
Los Caminantes seguira‘n/Memories of Purab
An earlier cooperation with my friends Prakash and Vikash Maharaj finds a revival now.
You might detect Spanish influence in one and an Indian in the other.
