Donde el Mar Saluda al Cielo
Jazz trombonist Mark Bassey was commissioned in 2007 by Superbrass to write a trombone feature for Andy Wood. Mark writes:- “Roger asked for something not too fast with a Spanish flavour – so I created a slow Bossa Nova with just a hint of Bolero vaguely in the tradition of Jobim with undertones of Ravel. It’s a fine vehicle for Andy Wood’s beautiful tone and virtuosic soloing skills.”
This can be heard on the 2011 Superbrass debut recording
“Under the Spell of Spain”.
