Jazz Station Records (JSR) is thrilled to unveil a breathtaking new single, “Three Views Of A Secret,” a captivating tribute to the late, celebrated jazz bassist Jaco Pastorius. The enchanting musical endeavor witnesses the collaboration between Grammy-winning bassist Mark Egan and the distinguished Brazilian singer and arranger Selma Boragian, bridging soulful melodies and robust harmonies.
This project is especially heartwarming for Egan, who was not only a long-time collaborator but also one of the best friends of Jaco Pastorius since their childhood. Their musical dialogues often found a stage with the Gil Evans Orchestra and created memories that Egan cherishes and immortalizes with this release.
Selma Boragian, renowned for founding one of Brazil's elite vocal groups, Arirê, and for her profound influence on Brazilian samba music, showcases her ingenious arrangement by overdubbing 36 vocal tracks, crafting a lush, immersive vocal choir. The single reflects both her scholarly understanding, as a master degree holder from the University of São Paulo, and her practical mastery in vocal arrangement and conducting, currently demonstrated through her work with the Coral USP (USP Choir).
