LINHARES, Leonardo Barreto e BOREM, Fausto. The composition and interpretation by Victor Assis Brasil in Pro Zeca: hybridism between the Brazilian baião and bebop. Per musi [online]. 2011, n.23, pp. 28-38. ISSN 1517-7599. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-75992011000100004.
Study about the recognition of compositional and intrepretive elements typical of bebop and baião in the Introduction and Theme of Pro Zeca by Brazilian composer and saxophonist Victor Assis Brasil (1945-1981) departing from three primary sources: (1) the edited lead sheet that reproduces the composer's autograph (ASSIS BRASIL, sem data a), (2) an anonymous lead sheet manuscript (ASSIS BRASIL, sem data b) and (3) the lead sheet of the transcription based on the composer's recording (ASSIS BRASIL, 1974) included at the end of this article. Resorting to historical and theoretical references of performance practices in jazz (GRIDLEY, 2006; LAWN, 1995; HOBSBAWM, 1990, BAKER, 1987) and Brazilian music (GIFFONI, 1997; SIQUEIRA, 1981; SÉVE, 1999), this comparative analysis reveals hybridization between bebop and the Brazilian baião, in which the characteristics of these popular genres from two different countries sometimes remain separate and sometimes are interwoven into a synthesis.
