The whatmusic.com interview...

new gineration!

Gilson Peranzetta and his colleagues from Tema 3 were too young to be part of the first, or even the second wave, of piano trios in the 60s, and as such, had to look further than the simple trio line-up in order to keep the new audiences happy. By the late 60s these audiences were divided by home-grown rock’n’roll, tropicalia, the emergent MPB aristocracy as well as the influence of international pop music. On top of that many label heads thought the only way to sell improvised music was to appeal to the bachelor brigade with their late night whiskies, as the original liner note translated below shows. As such Peranzetta (here calling himself Peranz) and co were forced to seek out a sound that went behind the usual piano/bass/drums cover versions of ‘Nana’ and ‘Corcovado’, and they certainly succeeded in producing a truly interesting album. As well as the always welcome cover versions of the Beatles and Bacharach (never obvious and always well arranged) there are some really inspired originals. ‘Zond-5’ is a modal piece in 7/8 which is immediately catchy and ‘Afro’ is paean to the influence of africa in brazilian music. Even Joao Donato’s ‘Amazonas’ receives an arrangement that preserves the Donato sound but also makes it very much Tema 3’s own piece.

The classically trained Peranzetta spent the years after Tema 3 working with Ronie Mesquita in Paris and later in the group Central do Brasil and recording with artists such as Johnny Alf to Nana Caymmi. Gilson’s compositions have also been recorded by everyone from Edu Lobo and Djavan to Dianne Schuur and Quincy Jones. These days Peranzetta is still playing and recording in the semi-underground world that is brazilian instrumental music and his CD releases on his own label can be tracked down without too much difficulty.

Translation from the original liner notes:

Whilst you are reading this back cover and rolling around the ice cubes in your generous dose of your favourite tipple, prepare yourself for the latest release by Tema 3.

Gilson Peranz and Alberto Arantes bring, with great taste, these arrangements of some of the biggest pop hits of recent times, such as ‘The Fool on the Hill’, ‘Andança, Amazonas’, ‘Sabia’, ‘Walk On By’, along with new songs like ‘A Tema de Manhã Branca’, ‘Afro’, ‘Zond-5’, ‘Ela Vem de Volta’.

On the tracks on which the orchestra accompanies the trio, Alberto Arantes seeks out modern and current sounds that are truly surprising for the beauty and technical capacity of this young arranger. On the trio tracks Gilson, joined by Luiz Roberto and Atayde, demonstrates his extraordinary skill as a player, improvisor and arranger.

Now that you are ready to audition this new LP and you’re on your third dose of whatever, how about this for the sound of the ‘wee small hours’…?
