ethnomama Original by Jorge Ben(jor), 1963. Bossa to hip hop samba (hiphomba?). Organic fusion - must I explain? 'If you don't know, ask somebody.' Timeless.
ethnomama Herbie, Chick, Carlos, John, Wayne - fusion all-stars. Musical freedom and generous collaboration. Jazz as a way of life, extra-musical. Timeless.
ethnomama I know you feel me. If not, you must feel something, and I bet you listen to the next one. Stevie is serious about the music, and musicians.
ethnomama Caldera, 1977. a good year for fusion. Right, Herbie Hancock? Or Chick Corea, he knows, too. But not jazz funk - 'junk' - not as cool as 'crunk'.
ethnomama Additive, addictive. Polyrhythm - opposite of one hand clapping? Luis Conte - we remember Caldera. Latin fusion. Oxymoron or 'entender doble'?
ethnomama Additive is now exponential. Time and tone meet pitch, no boundaries yet overlap. Underlap? No. Unilap, but in asynchronous unison. Jaco forever.
ethnomama Fusion. No shortcuts - a timeless journey, in fact. Was not the original musical encounter a fusion of sound & collaborative intent? Synergistic.

ethnomama Jack Dejohnette toward further fusion, with Manolo Badrena. A shared rhythm - a lot of trust there. And tonal harmony, too? Multi-timbric.
ethnomama Lost song in sequence? Jackson Pandeiro in 1959 - 'samba rock' they called it. SO wrong. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiclete_com_banana_(song)

ethnomama Tried to let last song speak for itself, but alas, 'samba rock'. Not, so very not. Jack DeJohnette - a study in musical fusion and vice versa. More.
ethnomama Samba rock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiclete_com_banana_(song)? In 1959, Jackson Pandeiro? I think not. Who writes this stuff? Stay tuned.

ethnomama Feeling some fusion coming on - bossa nova, bebop, samba and jazz - where percussion is synergistic, not additive. Addictive, maybe. See? Need more.

"Chiclete com Banana" played/sung by Tania Maria, 1980.

ethnomama There is something about Cuba... Havana go there again, sabes? Just to feel the spirit. Listen to Dizzy and learn.

ethnomama Randy Weston believes that we must teach young people to know themselves through the music of our people - the most ancient, the root music.

ethnomama Jazz banjo, maybe a nod to James Taylor root, maybe and probably not. But sensual and rhythmic, sensually rhythmic, even. Just like Rio.
ethnomama Classically complex, yet catchy. Loose, yet tightly in sync. Collaborative improvisation at its best. And Jaco Pastorius - live.
ethnomama Live musical interaction, no substitute. Vocal instrument blends and leads, complex aural texture(s). Differently Afro, definitely.
ethnomama So many shades of Afro Blue... Improv duet in a call and response, lovely, this time with meaning. Definitely Afro.
ethnomama Impeccable artistry. Close listening reveals the depth of a jazz trio, where less becomes more than the sum of its parts.

ethnomama From the first phrase, it is an incredibly flowing collaboration - collective virtuosity. Props to the sound engineer - his/her sonic subtlety.
