Saudade

Here’s a mellow bossa nova from bassist Walter Booker, off of the Cannonball Adderley record Inside Straight.  It’s technically a live album, though rather than bring recording equipment to a club, an audience was brought into the studio to applaud solos and generally add a different kind of energy and ambiance to the date.  I have been involved in projects like this before, and I find it can help some musicians let go of their anxiety about performing in a sterile studio environment.

For thousands of years music has been a “live” art form, and musicians naturally play with greater enthusiasm and soul when they’re in front of appreciative listeners.  Listening to a record can never match the experience of being present while music is created, so please go see live music whenever you get a chance!
