Forasteira by Will Lyle
From the album
About the Album
From L.A. Source Codes, the debut album from bassist Will Lyle. Meaning "outsider" in Portuguese, “Forasteira” is a Brazilian baião and Partido alto groove combined with a Cedar Walton influence in the melody and a solo section reminiscent of 1980s and 1990s modal jazz. It was written to represent feelings of alienation or isolation that most people experience in one form or another, and largely in reference to my own feelings as an outsider, be it in school, sports, or the music industry in general. Featuring drummer Marvin “Smitty” Smith, pianist Mahesh Balasooriya, and Bob Sheppard on tenor sax, the introduction vamp uses fairly non-conventional chords over the groove and a melody that moves in between different keys. The bassline is a partido alto which is superimposed over a baião drum pattern. Various composers, such as Cedar Walton and Jobim, are referenced in the melody.
