Album Notes
Artist's note: On the first 9 songs, I have chosen to revisit songs that I have previously recorded and released. I have re-imagined them in a style that best describes what I do. I call it “Global Jazzatronica”. The last 5 “Bonus Tracks” are songs from my previous 4 CD’s in the same style.

The CD features musicians recorded in Kenya, France, India, Australia, Brazil, Argentina, Antarctica and the USA.

All songs, produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Maurice Gainen at Maurice Gainen Productions, Los Angeles, CA. Co-producers on some songs listed in CD liner notes.

1) MULHER BRASILEIRA (Remix) (Brazilian Woman) (M. Gainen)
Portugese translation - Naila Foresti

Special Guests:
Naila Foresti - Vocals (Vinhedo, Brazil)
Cassio Duarte - Percussion (Natal-RN, Brazil)

Originally on “The Sound of Freedom”

2) EUROPA (Remix) (Carlos Santana/Tom Coster)
Special Guest: Marcelo Berestovoy - Guitar

Originally on “The Sound of Freedom”

3) L’ÉTÉ EN HIVER (Remix) (Summer in Winter)
Music - M. Gainen/Michael Bialys
French Translation - Karoline Blandin/Bruno Blum

Special Guest Vocalist: Karoline Blandin (Paris, France)
Karoline is a very unique Parisian vocalist. I had fun speeding up the version originally on “7 CONTINENTS - Global Jams” and flipping it a bit.

4) FOR ALL WE KNOW (Remix) (Sam M. Lewis and J. Fred Coots)
Special Guest Vocalist - Hiroko Williams (Tokyo, Japan)

Heavily mashed up with samples from: Brahana (Dawn) by Aloke Dasgupta from “7 CONTINENTS - Global Jams”

I had the honor of recording the vocals, mixing and mastering Hiroko’s CD “A Time For Ballads”. I could not get this song out of my head so I asked the Producer, Grammy Award winner Bill Cunliffe and Hiroko if I could use it. I am happy that they agreed.

Music & chorus lyrics M. Gainen.
Lyrics Rap Verse 1: Immaculee Awino & M. Gainen.
Lyrics Rap Verse 2: Blue Nyle

Special Guest Vocalists: The Hues Corporation (“Rock The Boat”)
St. Claire Lee, Wendell Anderson and Elaine Woodard
Guest Rap Verse 1 - Immaculee Awino (Kenya)
Guest Rap Verse 2 - Blu Nyle
Special Guest Drums and Percussionist - Burleigh Drummond

6) KOKORO (Remix) (Dave Iwataki)

Produced by Dave Iwataki and M. Gainen

M. Gainen – Flute and Soprano Sax

Special Guests:
June Kuramoto - Koto
Dave Iwataki - Keyboards

I have always loved this song from the first “Hiroshima” record. I am thrilled that Dave pitched in to create the version that we did for “The Sound Of Freedom” and again for this remix. Ms. Kuramoto, is a founding member of Hiroshima. The band was nominated for a Grammy in 2010

6) NGIYEKHAYA (Remix) (I’m Going Home) - (Mxolisi Sithole/Sthembizo Zuma)

Special Guests on Percussion: Christopher Opwapo, Naomi Njeri, Billy Mwaura, Muhammed Masila
(Nakuru and Nairobi, Kenya)

Please view the video for this song filmed completely in Kenya and featuring the Simba Cultural Dancers. It tells a story of despair and then rejuvenation for a teenaged Kenyan girl, while showing old and new Kenya juxtaposed. It is more a mini-movie than music video.

8) TO THE SEA (Remix) (M.Gainen)

I dug this out of my analog 2-inch archives. It was a real challenge to do the modern “things that we do” to it, but it was fun and worth the effort.

9) FATHER (Remix) (M. Gainen)

I wrote this song for my father when I knew his health was in serious decline, basically as a “requiem” that I wanted him to hear. He did in fact hear it many times and I am happy to say he liked it. This CD is dedicated to Leon Gainen.

(Craig Owens, M. Gainen)

M. Gainen - Tenor Sax solo, Soprano Sax, flute and Production
Craig Owens - Keyboards and Production

Craig and I have collaborated on many projects and songs for a long time. This is our latest, done especially for this CD.

BONUS TRACKS (Remixes previously released)

11) The Sound of Freedom (Remix/Mash-up) (M.Gainen)

With the exception of the verse sax melody, kick drum and bass part, this song is made up entirely of samples from other songs on “The Sound of Freedom” CD transposed, time-stretched, mashed and mangled.

12) Feel Like Makin' Love (Hip-Hop Remix) - (Eugene McDaniels)

Featuring rap by DRange
From “Jazz Flute Jams”

13) MANGO (Kez Remix) (M. Gainen)

Coco Trivisonno - Bandoneón
Marcelo Berestovoy - Guitar and Production
Voiceover - Julia Estacolchic

This song benefits greatly from the production by Marcelo and Coco’s Bandoneón. Originally on “Jazz World Colors”.

14) Meditation (Acid Jazz Remix) - (A.C. Jobim/N. Gimbal/N. Mendonca)
Special Guest Vocalist: June Angela

Originally from “Jazz Flute Jams”, this is the Jobim classic sped up, chopped, reversed, delayed, morphed, mangled and otherwise altered.

15) JUST DO SOMETHING (Global Jam Remix) - (M. Gainen)

Instructions to musicians for this song: “Just do something...2 takes, not too much thought…I’ll mix it up later.
Originally on “7CONTINENTS - Global Jams”

A great fusion of classical instruments and electronic vibes. I thought it was the perfect amount of both styles brought together to create a great new sound. A great CD to drive to!
