I have a recording session scheduled in with Jovino on the 12th Novemeber.
He wants me to send him course ideas, subject focus, specific songs.
Does anyone have any ideas/requests/feedback on the last course?
I’ve just collated some requests from my inbox and other forum threads:
- “Mas Que Nada” in a very rhythmic way.
- “Agua De Bebe”
- “Song For My Father”
My personal view is that Jovino’s first course has perfectly demonstrated the basics of Brazilian grooves - bossa nova, samba etc… lot’s for us all to practice there!
This is how I think we should use the studio time available with him:
- 3 or 4 x arrangements of Brazilian/Latin tunes.
- 7 or 8 x “5 Minute Masterclass” lessons covering lots of different theory areas.
Of course, we should all have a say in the lesson topics and direction… not just me!

Just for example, some feedback could be
more rhythmic application to tunes
more application to jazz theory, chords, voicings, scales (jovino has a great knowledge of this and that’s why I think it will be nice for him to make us more “5-minute masterclasses”)
make it more accessible to beginners
make more challenging arrangements.
