Track descriptions by Gabriel Vivas.
Track 1:
Down town, dedicated to down town Caracas, the groove is an odd meter rhythm 5/8 traditional in Venezuelan culture but sometimes complex to play and/or to follow by people from other cultures. This makes the track interesting and unique, you’ll never get tired of listening to this tune. One massure of 5/4 is equal to two massures of 5/8, find it and try to tap along with it if you can…!
Track 2:
Sambo soul, just groove and let your soul feel it. Fretless bass solo and many interesting details. “Sometimes few notes is what makes it all happen…”
Track 3:
Veranda, Vals inspired on Venezuelan vals, all acoustic track with a Brazilian acoustic guitar player just greatly making it happen. Beautiful, really rich in harmonies. Listen to the percussion too lots of toys, lots of tasty details…
Track 4:
My brother, dedicated to my brother is a hard grooving up tempo funk with a five piece sax arrangement (two tenor, two alto saxes and a baritone sax) also, a soprano sax on the bridge of the tune. The bridge goes to a different more open pedal point section opposite to the A section from where the tune is coming. Lots of fire, lots of fun…
Track 5:
In peace, it’s a solo piece written for the six string bass, very melodic, full of chords and harmonies. Any bass player and anybody can enjoy listening to this tune unique and beautiful to execute.

Track 6:
Beach House, it’s a latin-funk tune fun to record and to play life, lots of fire and solos from everyone in the ensemble. “Beach house”, listen to the track and you’ll see why the tune has that name, that’s what I see…
Track 7:
Beautifully loved, (amores de antaño) it’s a tune inspired on the standard “beautiful love” by Victor Young but with a Venezuelan twist to it. It’s a 5/8 odd meter, rhythm from Venezuelan folk music. Beautiful to listen too, very melodic. This track is an acoustic duo, piano and acoustic bass. I love this composition, I hope you’ll love it too…
Track 8:
Half the orange, this tune is a medium funk, with lots of percussion and toys, lots of stuff are on this track including a bass clarinet, soprano, etc… cool track! It’s just groove with many surprises…
Track 9:
Significant memories, this track is a 7/4 ballad dedicated to my early memories in Venezuela when I was a kid (7-10 years old) with my parents, the trips, the summers, the laughs, my brothers, unforgettable moments, unforgettable memories…

Thank you for purchasing this CD, you will enjoy it…
