Brazilian Jazz

Ian is working on a new project to bring the instrumental music of Antonio Carlos Jobim to a live setting. Much of Jobim’s work was arranged by Claus Ogerman and usually involved a rhythm section with latin percussion and a string orchestra. Added to this were usually flutes and a trombone. There is a lot of this wonderful music to call on, so watch this space while Ian puts this together! In the meantime, here are a couple of YouTube videos of Ian playing some of these tunes when everyone was making Coronavirus lockdown videos!:

Tema Jazz is an exciting Bossa Nova written by Antonio Carlos Jobim, performed here by Ian with Amy Roberts and Richard Exall on various flutes and Denny Ilett on guitar.
This tune is called Dialog and is a beautiful duet written for trombone and bass flute, played here by Ian with Amy Roberts.
