Nas “The Lost Tapes II” (new single: “Jarreau of Rap [Skatt Attack],” feat. Al Jarreau and Keyon Harrold; On Tour, with Mary J. Blige) (Mass Appeal / Def Jam)
Juan María Solare “One Before 909, i.e. 808” (producer: Solare; Hear here) (Janus Music & Sound)

[su_quote]All seven pieces have exactly the same overall motivic structure (abc, adb, acd) but ‘filled’ with so different motifs that it is nearly impossible to follow,” Solare tells P&P of the musical structure. “This fulfills a practical and nearly philosophical principle: that a structure ought to be ‘reliable,’ not ‘interesting.’ Even in a large bridge, the main structure is extremely simple – and there resides its strength.

“Each piece is in a different time signature, from ‘normal’ (4/4, 3/4) to irregular/asimmetrical (7/8, 11/18, 15/16). Before anyone yells here ‘intellectualism,’ I say that (a) the different time signature guarantee a maximum of diversity within a quite similar instrumentarium (b) these kinds of time signatures are being used since at least a century (c) where is the problem with intellectualism? Humans have both feelings and thoughts, and music (in fact all arts) reflect all facets of human life.[/su_quote]
