An episode from Miles Davis’ not so jazzy jazz album. During this period w. Gil Evans, he explored the best from what Gil Evans can support, that helped to explore more beyond the traditional jazz sound.
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 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.
