ManSound: Spain (C. Corea)

January 3, 2008

[While I visit with my parents in Phoenix, I will continue my little vacation and pass off today’s post to my dear friend and colleague Juliana Gondek.]

Watch the whole video – it just keeps getting better and better (7 min). These guys are from the Ukraine. If you like the sound, there are more free samples here.

Especially lovely are the clips from their new CD “Under the window,” (left side of this page) jazz/close harmony arrangements of Ukrainian folk songs (with guest artist, Gaitana) Click on the audio link and let it play – there are a dozen or more clips that run continuously.

I’m impressed, given the fairly wild pitch variations, especially toward the end of this performance, that they never quite lose their reference, at least to these ears.

Quite a virtuosic ensemble! And quite convincing English for Ukrainians.
