Wonderful, unique trombone sound of this young woman from Spain

Post by TillE » Sat May 04, 2019 5:32 pm

Her singing recalling Astrud Gilberto and others has however, an enchantment of it's own

She’s Brazilian, and played a lot with Joan Chamorro. YouTube has a lot of videos.

She's actually from Barcelona. I met her at the ITF in Valencia. A very natural player and wonderful musician.

Anybody else notice something odd? Unless the pitch was changed on the video, her trombone is in B. Being in Spain it would not have surprised me too much if it was in C... But no, 1st position is playing B and F#.

Rita Payés: http://itfvalencia2015.com/rita-payes/
Now almost 20 years old. Sings in Catalan, Portuguese, and English.
Another in Joan Chamorro's string of jazz prodigies. Her first recording with him - age 14!
(See Andrea Motis - trumpet & vocals).

I have never seen a trombone like Rita's - or her sometimes unconventional grip. (Look carefully.)

Congratulations to Doug Elliott for noting the unusual tuning of this trombone (if it's real).

Very nice, listenable singing and playing. Lots of YouTube recordings. We'll hear more from her. :good:

In Latin countries it's not uncommon to have trombones in C (although usually valve trombones). It's possible she pulled the tuning slide out some to get to B in order to mate better with the guitar. But it's also possible that the clip is not true pitch.

Very nice playing in any case and a lovely singing voice.

It looks likes she's playing in the key of A, but it's sounding in Bb. Maybe it was altered post production somehow, It's also a Kuhnl and Hoyer tbn.

Here's another nice video, she's playing a Bb horn, the song is in F. She's a very talented musicial young lady.

Pitch is certainly altered again here. Trumpet player starts the tune with a sounding G with 2&3 valves down...

In any case she sounds great. Particularly when singing.

Wonder why they'd alter the pitch?

what algorithm? You might be right, but the videos are posted by what looks like her official account.

Really strange.

I think it's to do with the differences that audio is sampled at in video formats, as opposed to stand alone audio. Normal video being at 48kHz and audio at 44.1 88.2 and 96kHz. In this instance I suspect that a box wasn't checked to align the 2 sample rates which will change the audio. This can be done either when the video is rendered or when uploaded to YouTube.
It's a good idea check that the audio format on the video camera is set to 44.1kHz to avoid these issue from the off. Also, it used to be true that the conversion from 48 to 44kHz resulted in a slight loss of quality, I don't know if that's still the case today.

Then there's mp3 formats which may have some bearing as well...

Thank you very much for the track in the OP. That was so worth a listen!
