Huffington Post - over 2 years
The Maurício de Nassau bridge in Recife is a replica of a bridge in Amsterdam and a reminder of the era when Holland ruled northeastern Brazil in the early 17th century. It is also the inspiration for "The Bridge" concert series featuring Brazilian singer-songwriter Lenine and Holland's Martin Fondse Orchestra. After having toured Europe and the Americas, the show will arrive at Central Park's Summerstage Festival in New York on July 19th. For Lenine, crossing the bridge is a metaphor for leaving one's proverbial island, connecting with others, and broadening one's horizons, which he explored in the song "The Bridge" on his album O Dia Em Que Faremos Contato (The Day We Make Contact). Lenine's songs span various musical islands and are difficult to categorize.

    More Details Hide Details Another track from the album, his interpretation of Ravel's "Pavane pour une infante defunte" ("Pavane for a Dead Princess"), was used for a number of years in the 1970s by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's television station ABN-2 in Sydney, serving as the background music for a videotaped sequence of scenes of Sydney at night, which marked the end of transmission for the day (in the period before the ABC commenced 24-hour broadcasting). His early career records used guitarist John Tropea and quintessential jazz fusion flautist Hubert Laws. He was also known for utilizing the signature funky electric piano sound of the Fender Rhodes Eighty-Eight, specifically with his trademark gritty tube drive.
    His first album in the US, Prelude, released in January 1973, was of a big band Latin jazz style that immediately attracted a wide audience. The album was produced by Creed Taylor on his CTI (Creed Taylor Inc.) label.

It was subsequently used to great effect in the 1979 film Being There, starring Peter Sellers and Shirley MacLaine. It has also been covered extensively by the rock band Phish in their live performances and included in several of their live releases.
