¿Qué es la síncopa?

La síncopa es la acentuación de los tiempos débiles del compás en lugar de los fuertes. Por tanto, en los tiempos (débiles) que corren, reivindicar la síncopa puede ser todo un acto de osadía, pero también de esperanza…

SATELLITE presenta ‘MY SYNCOPATED MELODY MAN’ un EP de 4 canciones que recorren lo mejor del swing, del sonido Big Band, del hot jazz, y por supuesto del estilo que popularizó la síncopa: el ragtime.

2 temas propios (Shine y Billie’s farewell) y 2 revisiones de viejos clásicos del primer jazz (On the sunny side of the street y My syncopated melody man), con todo el sabor añejo de la época pero con un sonido embriagador y actualizado. Colaboraciones de lujo y una apuesta decidida por el encanto de las ‘melodias sincopadas’.

Track Name: On the sunny side of the street
Grab your coat and get your hat
Leave your worries on the doorstep
Just get back your feet
To the sunny side of the street

Can’t you hear the pitter-pat
And that happy tune is your step
Life can be so sweet
On the sunny side of the street

I used to walk in the shade
Get my blues on parade
But now I’m not afraid
‘Cos my rover crossed over

If I’d never have a cent
I’d be rich like Rockefeller, babe
I’ve got gold dust down my feet
On the sunny side of the street
Track Name: Shine
Let’s swing it now!

Shine won’t you let it shine
My heart is glittering so bright
Fly won’t you come to fly
I’ve got wings to fly so far away

It’s time to forget the time and you’ll get fully satisfied
And you, you… free your chains and rise, but…
Don’t leave my lonely days without…
Don’t leave my gloomy days without…
Don’t leave my sunny days without your shine

Shine, won’t you come to shine
My heart is glittering tonight
Fly, come on join and fly
Got wings to fly all by your side

It’s time to forget the time and you’ll get fully satisfied
And you, you… free your chains and rise, but…
Don’t leave my lonely days without…
Don’t leave my gloomy days without…
Don’t leave my sunny days without your shine
Track Name: My syncopated melody man
My syncopated man
Plays the blues like no one can
When he sits down at that piano
When he starts in a place
New song right in the sway
You’ll be listening, you’ll be listening
And you’re going to start to whistle it

He’s got a way that’s all his own
Probably the best musician ever known
You never heard that syncopation

Had a roots key he don’t shine
Besides the devil loving man of mine
His music, much as they hate him
They just can’t appreciate him
That’s why I called him my syncopated man
Track Name: Billie's Farewell
I made my decision
I found my way
Though I had no place to go

I said: “I’m gonna miss you, but I’m gonna leave you”
It was the best thing for both

I did my best and I had no rest
It wasn’t easy to accept

Now I must be strong
I need to go on and live a life on my own

On my own, I need myself, I need you and I need it all
I’m so alone, I don’t have eyes, don’t have arms I need yours

I said: “I’m gonna miss you, but I’m gonna leave you”
It was the best thing for both

Now I must be strong
I need to go on and live a life on my own

On my own, I don’t have eyes, don’t have arms I need yours

Time has gone, I don’t know why If I tried what was wrong
On my own, I don’t have eyes, don’t have arms I need yours
