Towards the Composition.
A guitarist,composer and arranger,Brazilian Edu Leal presents his
first album “Vida Nova”(”New Life”).He invited the great Brazilian
musician Arismar do Espirito Santo to be the Musical Director,and
other notorious Brazilian singers like Leila Pinheiro, Filó Machado
and Zé Renato to participate.
Edu Leal’s creative process is mostly based on the preliminary
development of a sophisticated harmonic basis, where the notes of
the melody ,almost always with a melancholic trend ,can be
developed. The use of Brazilian patterns doesn't create a clear
impression of typical Brazilian music because the influences of
the composer don't appear only in his roots ,but also in
contemporary music around the world. That's why the melody's
presentation is so long and elaborate, not popular, almost lyric.
"My music aims to propose an introspective experience" ,he explains.
My Jazz Story
I love jazz,brazilian music,World Music and classical/contemporany music
because I like the harmonic sophistication.
