I'm in Guimarães, Portugal, about to hit with these guys in a few hours. Lots of rhythm going on here
Just got back from the concert the band bus leaves in 6 hours. But, I'll answer your Vince question: He is a brilliant orchestrator, and I gladly play any lines that he writes, because I know when he writes a specific bass line, it's part of the overall ensemble sound. He writes great bass parts that are integral to the arrangement. When the solo sections come, or when a section is repeated with no horn backgrounds, then I have all of the freedom in the world to add something of my own. Of course, whatever I play has to fit the intent of the piece. Ultimately, it should be hard to distinguish between the written bass lines and the improvised lines in a big band part. Ideally, it should all sound well composed.
Thank you for the lesson, always great help and info.
Thanks also, Whousedto...
We're on tour with the pianist Chano Dominguez, dancer Daniel Navarro, singer Blas Córdoba, and Cajon player Pablo Dominguez. Arrangements by Vince Mendoza of Chano's tunes. I play with the WDR (Westdeutscher Rundfunk) Big Band, which is one of four radio big bands in Germany. They organized the whole project. We're recording with video on Tuesday in Leverkusen, and I've heard that will probably be a DVD sometime.
Here's Chano, Blas and Daniel with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra.
Good idea....I've gotten an earful of Phrygian the past couple of weeks.
