Now here's a quite good clarinet quintet rendition of a Hermeto Pascoal composition from his Quarteto Novo days. Now who said that clarinets and Brazilian/Latin music are incompatible with each other? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91TMRrR88wg

Whimsy in Wooden Shoes

By JON PARELES [with emphasis by MGG]
Published: June 24, 1997

When Hermeto Pascoal announced he was going to play something ''really crazy'' for the Summerstage audience in Central Park on Saturday afternoon, he was only escalating slightly. Mr. Pascoal, a renowned Brazilian composer and keyboardist who turned 61 on Sunday, had already delivered one solo by scat-singing into a plastic cup of water (sounding like a trombone) and another through a scrap-metal horn.

He had also led his group in pieces that quickly metamorphosed from Steve Reich-style Minimalism to Frank Zappa's dissonant jerkiness to John Coltrane's harmonic complexity to jazz propelled by Brazilian rhythms.

Crazy, for Mr. Pascoal, meant giving his five band members pairs of wooden shoes that clicked different notes, to play a clattering, catchy piece that they performed like a hand-bell choir. The band then bounced tin cylinders in syncopation against cinder blocks, suggesting a Brazilian gamelan.

Like Zappa, Mr. Pascoal is revered by musicians for the whimsical complexity of his music. His compositions constantly shift meter, key and style; they cruise for a moment, then veer into evasive maneuvers. Mr. Pascoal often packs too many disparate phrases into a piece, but his excesses stem from generosity, and his band breezed through the music as if it were a bunch of carnival tunes.
