September 13, 2014: Andrea Vicari

Many thanks to Andrea for an excellent session in which we covered:

“Ponta de Areia” by Milton┬áNascimiento

We performed the Esperanza Spalding version of this song with its fantastic bass-line and some tricky changes arranged by Andrea.

As always Andrea came well prepared with an excellent worksheet covering the scales that can be used to improvise over the various sections and chords of the composition. Maybe on day I’ll get the hang of the augmented scale.

Many thanks to Andrea for a great session.
