Cansaço 07:45
Por detrás do espelho quem está De olhos fixados nos meus Alguém que passou por cá E seguiu ao Deus dará deixando os olhos nos meus Quem dorme na minha cama E tenta sonhar meus sonhos Alguém morreu nesta cama E lá de longe me chama Misturado nos meus sonhos Tudo o que faço ou não faço Outros fizeram assim Daí este meu cansaço De sentir quanto faço Não é feito só por mim


Recorded in January 2013, this EP has the title track, “Coast to Coast”, a composition by André Matos, and an arrangement I wrote for the Portuguese fado “Cansaço” (Tiredness), made popular by Amália Rodrigues in 1958.These two songs have been played by this quintet in many live situations, and I felt there was a special force to it.

“Coast to Coast” is a song that highlights distinct melodic and rhythmic patterns which repeat cyclically, with an interlude featuring a collective improvisation.

“Cansaço”, a song that I recorded in my latest duo album with Ran Blake, has been on my mind for a long time.I was very inspired by Guillermo Klein’s arrangements of Argentinean songs, and decided to experiment the same kind of approach with this Fado.
