Sketches-of-Spain

This superhero!AU has been totally killin’ my feeelllsss~ So I made up a little summary of Spain and Romano’s characters

- Antonio is a gardener and a florist who sells his stuff at a flower cart in the marketplace

- Lovino is a messenger for the king (who is totally head over heels for the cute florist in the marketplace *wink wink*)

- Lovino experience the evils of greed within the walls of the castles when around the rich 24/7 and becomes a type of Robin Hood hero character

- Antonio is hired to work for the king to take down this “Robin Hood” character and is disguised as an everyday thief to trick Lovino.

- Hero!Antonio becomes this suave, Zorro type love interest and woo’s his way through Hero!Lovino’s heart, but actually begins to take an interest in Lovino (because he’s the cutest little thing ever, of course)

The Real Roots of Sketches of Spain

The Spanish origins of the Miles Davis/Gil Evans masterwork are, of course, well-known, but John Murname’s 2009 analysis of Sketches of Spain digs deeper: it identifies strains of traditional Arab music, some predating Islam, from music of the Moors reaching Spain during its golden age. Just more of the wealth residing below the surface of this multifaceted piece: including within Joaquin Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez, brought to you here in the Gazette.

Sketches of Spain is an album by Miles Davis, recorded between November 1959 and March 1960 at the Columbia 30th Street Studio in New York City. An extended version of the second movement of Joaquin Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez is included, as well as a song called “Will o’ the Wisp”, from the ballet El amor brujo by Manuel de Falla. Sketches of Spain is an exemplary recording of Third Stream, a musical fusion of jazz, European classical, and world musics. Sketches of Spain is considered by fans and critics alike to be one of the most accessible albums of Davis’s career. Less improvisational than much of his other work, some of Davis’ contemporariessuggested that Sketches of Spain was something other than jazz. Davis replied, “It’s music, and I like it”.The Rolling Stone Album Guide calls it “a work of unparalleled grace and lyricism.” Evans and Davis won the 1961 Grammy Award for Best Original Jazz Composition for Sketches of Spain.
