North 33rd Street Samba - R. Manzin

from LifeFlight by Roberto Manzin



1. North 33rd Street Samba
I wrote this song this year by chance, I was writing an outro for another song, thinking about Coltrane's changes (ie. Giant Steps) but with a minor Samba flavour and the idea took off by itself. I then decided to add a B section reversing the motion of the Coltrane's changes and using a similar approach to Jobim's 'One Note Samba' which keeps playing the same note while the underlying harmony changes. The title refers to a historical location in the USA, that you'll have to find out about with a little Google investigative work; the first person who emails me with an explanation of what this location is will have the album for free.
