Minuano (Six Eight)

Composer: Pat Metheny
Arranger: Ray Farr
Durata: 5 min
Recorded by Baadsvik on CD: Chameleon
Arrangements available in the following instrumentations:
Tuba and brass band, Tuba and fanfare orchestra

Pat Metheny wrote Minuano together with Lyle Mays (b. 1953), the key- board player of the group, naming it after a cold wind that blows in the South of Brazil and in Uruguay. The piece is in 6/8 and begins with long, cool melodic lines floating above a propulsive accompaniment. The English brass band con- ductor and arranger Ray Farr has made a tremendously effective adaptation of it for tuba and fanfare band.

While they were here, tuba players, Øystein Baadsvik from Norway and Benjamin Pierce from the United States came in to talk to fellow brass musician, Ben Pelletier.

The bell of the tuba fell off (!) while I walked off the stage in Canada yesterday. In front of a horrified audience I chased the bell as it bounced over the stage. I managed to grab it just before it rolled over the stage edge. Incredibly there was no damage to it. Not even a small dent. Solid german quality from Miraphone!
Backstage, my friend Lance Nagel immediately awarded me the No-bell prize 😂
Must remember to tighten those screws next time...
