Dave Madcat Brubeck

Caras, há um tempo atrás vi um vídeo sobre o pianista brasileiro João Carlos Martins, onde o Brubeck aparece. E eu vou dizer, o cara já tava velhinho naquele tempo. Bem velhinho.
Por isso me surpreendi quando li isso aqui:

Subject: [Harp-L] Cannery Row Suite by Dave Brubeck
To: harp-l

Dave Brubeck wrote a new piece of music, you might call it a Jazz opera, called the “Cannery Row Suite”.

The world premier the “Cannery Row Suite” is this Sunday at the Monterey Jazz Festival in Monterey, California.

Fortunately for me, Dave wrote a harmonica part into the new piece.
In fact the piece starts and ends with solo harmonica.

The piece will feature the Dave Brubeck Quartet:
Dave Brubeck - piano
Bobby Militello - alto saxophone and flute
Michael Moore - bass
Randy Jones - drums

plus Triple Play:

Chris Brubeck - trombone, bass and vocals
Joel Brown - guitar and vocals
Peter Madcat Ruth - harmonica and vocals

plus vocalist:

Kurt Elling
Roberta Gambarini

My harmonica parts are in the keys of:

Eb minor (which I will play on a B harp in fifth position and on a C# harp in third position.)

C (which I will play in second position on an F harp and on a low-F harp)


G (which I will play in second position on a C harp)

Now I guess I'll practice my parts a few (hundred) more times...

Peace & Joy,

Peter Madcat Ruth
