Bluey’s remix of Abraço da Bossa
If you are reading these lines, it is most likely that you already know who is Jean Paul Maunick AKA Bluey, head man and founder of the legendary Incognito. Needless to say that I am in complete awe of this man’s work. In fact Bluey, under his own name, has recently done a fantastic album which I totally recommend. Well, guess what ? He did a remix of one of the tracks on Veludo, my new album. Wow! I had to pinch myself to believe it. Thank you sir.
Abraço da Bossa is a piece I initially penned on my own and then with the help of Cristina Rajão for the lyrics and Christopher Pedley from the Baker Brothers for the music. Bluey, who often works with my producer Graham Harvey, kindly offered to “help the cause” by doing a remix. Of course we accepted immediately. With the help of his partner in groove, sound engineer, programmer, multi instrumentalist and all around studio wizard Richard Bull, they created an entirely new version of our song. Working on the track, there is also Matt Cooper, an amazing pianist with whom I had a band a zillion years ago, as well as Trevor Mires the trombonist and Sid Gauld on trumpet. The result is this almost lascivious 95bpm lounge mix which should get couples in the right mood; if you see what I mean.
I hope you will like it as much as I do.[maxbutton id=”6″]
