I will get it started, with one and add to
this, editing, as I get the chance.

These are from a number of years ago,
when I first started getting into doing
these Latin arrangements. It's Eddie
Palmieri's wild band:

http://www.thediametrixletter.com/olgamiguaganco7.mp3

http://www.thediametrixletter.com/malaguenasalerosa4.mp3

http://www.thediametrixletter.com/paraqueescuchen9.mp3

http://www.thediametrixletter.com/bomba2.mp3


George Brooks:

www.thediametrixletter.com/lena2.mp3

The following message, from George:

"Yes I did enjoy the Lena track with your drums.
I find that fifteen beat to be both a bit elusive and
rather hypnotic. Keep up the the good groove..."

Peace,

George


Conexion Latina:

This one (Flotando...) continues to be a fave, even
after all these years:

More recent, of the Spanish Harlem Orchestra:

http://www.thediametrixletter.com/larumbaseformo3.mp3

I am particularly proud of this one, spending a lot
of extra time, working on the bass part - something
that I had not focused on as much, before and all,
without losing the focus of the horn parts.

There is something about these arrangements that
both humble and discipline me. It is hard to describe.

I'm with ya brother Pete.

I say again, had it not been for you on a personal level when you encouraged me back in 2002 to remain on Boomer's site, I would not have been here today. Nuff said.

You are a musician's musician... without the commercial accolades nor appreciation.

I'm of your ilk rather than the fray so often bantered about.

Thanks for being my friend and comrade (oops... did I say something wrong?). No right! You ARE my eternal friend - simply because we can speak together without the frik and frak and most certainly with a camaraderie & music in mind. I call this ministry. Go figure.

Waltz For Lena was such an excellent choice as overdub project. Of the many such projects I've heard you do, Pete, this one stands out for me. This is probably because there was so much space in the original track which can be heard here on George's MySpace:
http://www.myspace.com/georgebrookssummit

Adding the kit punctuates the tune strongly. As I believe I said when you originally posted this, you should be hired immediately for the next tour. Incidentally, George plays Yoshi's next month with quite the amazing lineup, BIG MIX:
http://collect.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=music.showDetails&Band_Show_ID=28913229&friendid=82412459

Anyway, you could conduct a class in playing Lena and it would open floodgates for lots of people . . .

No charge.

Thanks for the kind words,
John. I appreciate it. You're
always an inspiration.


Woof,

You are too much. Thanks.
The tune is beautiful, on its
own. It was a pleasure to
play to it and it was the
same night, after I saw the
show that I did, I believe.

I appreciate it, hombre.

The links are all current, Niki.

Are you using Quicktime? What

Very fun, Pete. Is this a film soundtrack? Sounds like John Williams . . . seems familiar.

View user profile http://www.myspace.com/jazzstream23

9 Re: Pete on Sat Jun 21, 2008 11:39 am

Is is familiar, Woof. It's a file
from 2000, I think, that I found.
It was one of my first digital
attempts, way back when.

And you are right. It IS the
great John Williams, conducting
the LSO and the score is from
"Far and Away"; a track called
"The Land Race" - the film star-
ring the (then) couple: Tom
Cruise and Nicole Kidman.

Good opportunity to mention John's father, Johnny Williams, the extraordinary drummer of the Raymond Scott Quintette of the 1930s. Here's a trailer for a soon-to-be-released film about Raymond Scott:

Between this film and one about Vince Guaraldi there are some very rich documentaries coming out soon . . .

And here in 1955, this just might be Johnny Willliams:


Sidenote: Saxman Jay Corre played with the Raymond Scott Orchestra in 1946. Jay is best known for his work with Buddy Rich throughout the 1960s.

Here's an arrangement I picked
out to work on. Some tricky lines.
I really like trying to play it and
all lefty-trad-lead.

http://www.thediametrixletter.com/AhoraSi1.mp3

Hope you enjoy it. I might try it
a different way, again.

Regards,


Pete

PS: E-mail Reply:

The basic pattern, underneath,
with lots of color throughout:

Wow! Thanks for the second file because I didn't know what you were doing in the first. Come to think of it, I don't know what you're doing in the second either, but I like it. Wait, on third listen I'm starting to get it. Love it!

Another arrangement, by the same band:

That R. Scott video, btw, was
just absolutely kick-ass.

Thanks, Woof.

These links are all dead.  In fact,
with their death, many of the files
have disappeared and perhaps
forever.  It can happen, when ISPs
go out of business.

Request:

If you have downloaded any of
these, could you send them to me
so that I can archive them?  I have
lost almost all of them.

I will post as I receive. I hope that
I will be lucky in this.

Thanks, in advance.

Regards,

17 Re: Pete on Fri Dec 06, 2013 1:36 pm

Thanks!! No sooner than it goes
up, I have a series of them sent
in and I am thankful!!

These are the Conexion Latina
tracks.  I forget the year but it
was after Billy encouraged me
to go left, after the injury.  I
remember resisting telling him
that I did not want to relearn
everything and he said to me
that I would re-learn NOTHING,
that it would be LEARNING
SOMETHING ENTIRELY NEW!

He was so right and I owe it
all to him.

Here is that compilation:

Updated Link

Much of it is not as I remember.  
There had to be other takes of
these but that is OK. It was cool
listening for the kicks and pattern-
ing for them.  This had to be over
10-years ago.

Regards,

That was most of the Conexion
Latina but I am still missing all of
the Eddie Palmieri stuff, which was
really fun.

If anyone turns any of that up,
I would really appreciate it.

Oh! I owe it to Alex for
introducing me to their
incredible work!
