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.

George Brooks:

Lena (recent link)

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

----

PS: Found this one! Fond memories at 3am after
seeing him live. I had to do it immediately. He
wrote me back on it.


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.

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

It is from the film: FAR AND AWAY

It is the track called The Land Race and composed by the great John Williams.

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.

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!

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

Thanks, Woof.

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.

Don for sending these.

Crazy stuff! I could never
have done it right-handed!

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

Sorry about the error on the link to this one:

Late In The Evening (Spanish Harlem Orchestra, with Paul Simon) - https://we.tl/t-RRijqbM9DW

Always loved this song and was very happy
to hear this rendition of it.

Thank you for the link Pete!

Just listened to your version of "Mambo Nights", love it.

Just one month ago I´ve got in contact with Ricky Jamaison, who you used to play bongos with them, a GREAT friend of mine with whom I played extensively in the days I lived in Frankfurt, he is a fantastic player and lives in Puerto Rico, and if you ever go there should get together with him, because he is one living "near" you from whom you can get a lot of inside stories about the band, myself I´m more a guy that just played with some of the members in more Jazz situation contexts.

Best to you!

Alex,

Kind of you. Recovered from server
that just died. I have fond memories
of taking your direction and working
on those. Changed me totally.

Listening back to some of it, I can't
say that I did everything like I would
have liked - especially the mixes that
were too low-end but I really remem-
ber how exciting it was.

With a third or my body missing, it does
not look like I will ever travel. Life goes
on in the form that it is in. I am very
different and not that drummer or man.

But that is great that you are connecting
with the memories and know that you
were such the wonderful influence.

Smile

Regards,

Apologies, all.

Dead links.

I will have to replace. Here:

Pete-Conexion Latina

Pete Petecl11

They are all in this link.

Of course, I can't do any of this anymore.

Hi, all.

I will endeavor to clean up the dead links
and see if I find any of the stuff from that
time period, which I thoroughly enjoyed
and grew through, with all your help.

I have to say that all this direction
was do to the injury of my nerves
way back in my right arm during
which the Boomer convinced me
to go open-handed since I could
not use my right arm anyway. I
told him that I did not want to
re-learn everything for my left-
hand and he responded in the
way he can only respond:

"You won't re-learn anything."

He was so right and that was the
first thing.

Next, Alex introduced me to his
friends in Germany and these charts
that were smoldering hot!

HE was the great player that opened
the door to these incredible charts
and horn lines that changed my life.

Thank you, Boomer and Alex!

Regards,


PS: You all know that Conexion Latina
recordings have great stuff to move
your body in this new way but I also
suggest The Spanish Harlem Orchestra.

If I could, I would still be doing their
stuff. I suggest all of their stuff but
start with "Un Gran Dia en el Barrio".
Fabulous horn lines and a great bass
line to keep it on earth!

The challenge, of course, are those
horns but the piano comp is really
good for your your resonant toms.

Go for it!! For me, they ARE NYC!!

PSS: Links are temporary so take
them, while they are available.
