No BluesPosted by Wolfgang Muthspiel, March 23, 2015
The second stop in the journey for "Vienna, World" was Brazil.
We played four concerts there and recorded at Toca da Riposa Studios in Rio de Janeiro. All the musicians here are Brazilian except our bassist Alune Wade , who comes from Senegal.
It was a joy to feel the beautiful musical pulse of this band.
The ending on the videoclip is faded out, while on the album this groove section dances on for quite a while with a great harmonica solo by Gabriel Grossi.
When I wrote the songs for this album I wanted to have a Blues in there. Since I was doing particularly well at the time, I couldn't come up with any real Blues lyrics. So now I sing "I think I am too happy for the Blues"...
