"Lembrança" was recorded on The Thompson Fields. This piece was inspired by the Brazilian samba schools of Rio. It has quite a bit of percussion, and has passages that ritard while the subdivision of the samba doubles up, giving the feeling of slowing down, but becoming more rhythmically dense at the same time. I've included some streamed video of interviews, and a couple of extra mixes that will help you extract the sound of the horns when you follow the score, and another mix with just the rhythm section that will help you better hear what they are doing. There's a lot to explore and I hope you'll enjoy it.
