"Spain" chords and rhythm

Postby dropdeadblues » Thu Dec 15, 2005 3:02 am

Rhythm question-
"Spain" from Rosenburg Trio live at North Sea fest

Does anyone know the chords, and can you at all begin to describe the rhythmic approach hes using?

By the way, how come rhythm is such a rare topic on this sight?

Its perhaps the most important problem in Gypsy Jazz, but no one seems to fess up. Oh well...

Hi, Ryan,

Not the Rosenberg take, but there's a Bireli version here that may help:

Drop a line if you're ever heading south to the Northampton area, and we can talk rhythm...it seems like we've always got gigs on the same nights, so I haven't caught you guys with the new lineup. Soon, I hope!

All best,
Jack.

A must-hear live version (and a rather imitated one) is in the hard to find record "Two for the Road" by Steve Kahn and Larry Coryel. As a kid, I spent hours trying to figure out the solos!
