ALBUM NOTES
TREMURA & LEE www.tremuralee.com Formed in 2018 by two University of Florida music professors from different areas (Dr. Tremura Welson-Latin Studies and Ethnomusicologist and Dr. Randy Lee-School of Music, trumpet), this eclectic trumpet and Brazilian guitar/vocal duo features classical transcriptions, Brazilian songs, jazz, and more as you have never heard them before. Since their founding, they have performed at UF as well as done a couple of tours to Spain with invited tours regionally and abroad. In addition to performing, they are passionate about education and enjoy outreach concerts and masterclasses ranging from Brazilian music workshops, trumpet/brass pedagogy, and arts advocacy. The Art of Music is a journey into the sonic world of two brilliant and sensitive musicians: Randy Lee (trumpet, piccolo trumpet, flugelhorn, and shaker) and Welson Tremura (guitar, voice, and whistle). Born from a love of artistic collaboration, Tremura and Lee developed the repertoire for this recording project during a series of European concert tours over the past few years featuring the interrelated artistic strands of several musical traditions (e.g., Western art music; Brazilian choro, samba, and bossa nova; Argentinian nueva cancion). At first glance, the pairing of a trumpet with guitar/voice would seem to present numerous challenges of musical balance, dynamics, timbre, phrasing, and the potential for exposing conflicting artistic sensibilities. Fortunately, Randy Lee and Welson Tremura, as well as performing artist/music producer/audio engineer Jose Valentino Ruiz, possess the artistic vision and technical ability to meet these challenges and produce a highly musical recording.
