Interview with Juanito Pascual by Andre Vasconcelos! Juanito Pascual and Julian Lage concert at Somerville Theatre this Saturday!

Working for the Berklee Blogs is one of the best jobs I could have ever asked for. As many of you know I consistently get to meet and interview incredible artists providing me the opportunity to understand and assimilate their experiences. Last week I had the pleasure to meet one of the most upcoming voices in Flamenco guitar in the world. Young artist Juanito Pascual agreed to meet and chat with me in Harvard Square last Thursday. We discussed his career, his musical development and his very unique and personally inspiring career choice in a genre that isn’t inherently american, even though he is. Hailing from┬áMinneapolis, MN, the 39 year old guitarist will be playing a double-bill show at the Somerville Theatre on November 3rd, Saturday at 8:00pm with young prodigy and guitar virtuoso, Julian Lage. Below is the video of myself and Juanito talking music. Enjoy ­čÖé

Show do Pat Metheny no Berklee Performance Center!

Hoje irei escrever sobre o show que assisti neste domingo dia 14 de Outubro no Berklee Performance Center. O guitarrista Pat Metheny voltou ├í escola em que foi professor quando tinha apenas 18 anos para fazer uma apreseta├ž├úo com 3 dos maiores nomes da m├║sica hoje em dia. No formato tradicional de quarteto, Pat foi acompanhado por Chris Potter no saxofone tenor, Ben Williams no baixo ac├║stico e Antonio Sanchez na bateria. O grupo estava no ├║ltimo show de sua turn├¬ nos Estados Unidos promovendo o seu ├ílbum mais recente, Unity Band. Neste blog irei descrever a experi├¬ncia de ir ao show de um dos meus m├║sicos favoritos em todo o mundo de gra├ža, em um dos melhores assentos do Performance Center e de conhecer Pat e toda sua banda ap├│s o show.

Interview with Pat Metheny for the Berklee Blogs by Andre Vasconcelos

Greetings! My name is Andre Vasconcelos and I am the writer for the brazilian Portuguese section of the Berklee Blogs website. I have been writing for the blogs for 2 years now and its been a time filled with great and unique opportunities. Through this job I got to meet a lot of great artists and to, sometimes, interview them.

Writing blogs about meeting these accomplished artists is always great, I get to learn quite a lot from their experiences and lifestyles. This post is particularly special to me because I got to do an email interview with one of my favorite musicians of all time, the legendary jazz guitarist Pat Metheny. Metheny recently released his last album, Unity Band, with Chris Potter, Ben Williams, and Antonio Sanchez.

When I found out that Pat Metheny would be performing the Unity Band at the Berklee Performance Center on October the 14th, not only I decided to secure the date to catch yet another one of his stunning performances but I also thought about trying to interview him for the blogs. Working closely with my bosses at the Admissions Office and with his publicist Sue Auclair I was able to email the guitarist some questions. Read below Pat’s answers to my inquiries! Enjoy!

Guitar Night 2012!

Hoje vou escrever a continua├ž├úo do meu post anterior sobre o Guitar Night de 2012. Na quarta-feira passada eu tive o prazer de fazer parte deste evento organizado anualmente por Jon Finn e Mike Idhe. No total foram 10 guitarristas apresentando suas composi├ž├Áes com suas bandas. Apenas duas das bandas tocaram covers; “The Ocean” de Led Zeppelin e “Paradigm Rain”, uma combina├ž├úo de duas m├║sicas do Liquid Tension Experiment.

Os professores que escolheram os guitarristas me deram o privil├ęgio de fechar a noite com minha banda Dirty Blind. Ap├│s a apresenta├ž├úo de nossa m├║sica “Fade Away” todos os outros grupos se juntaram a n├│s no palco para fazer um super jam na m├║sica do Deep Purple “Highway Star”. Abaixo est├í o v├şdeo do jam final!
