TODAY’S YOUTUBE CLIP: This is the one and only Sergio Mendes. I’ve been on a Mendes kick over the last few days. If you don’t know who this brilliant Brazilian musician is, you owe it to yourself to get to know his music. The following song is a cover of “All In Love Is Fair” (originally written by Stevie Wonder) found on his album titled “I Believe” (released as “Sergio Mendes” in the US). If you’re a musician/music lover who loves “musical color” (which not only means chord structures, but the use of various instruments), then you’ll love this. Check it out.
As a musician, 90% of what you do is listening. Music is too much of a universal language to get stuck on one dialect. Therefore, today’s blog is dedicated specifically for you to LISTEN (to the clip provided), EXPAND (your thinking on music in a way that you may not have considered before), AND ROCK NOW (with more musical knowledge added to your repertoire)!
What do you think? Shared wisdom makes us all stronger.
