The actual content will start at minute 1:01. Right now Marcos and Robson are inviting the viewers in Brazil for an event which will take place at Robson Miguel’s Castle. Marcos: enough talking!. Let’s move on to what matters, let’s fight! Robson: the duel?! Marcos: you’re done! Robson: not this time! Hi Folks!
Here we are once again with the Master! I’m glad. So today we’ll engage in “Blues Duel”, what do you say?! Robson: Blues? Marcos: do you play any Blues? Or do you just pretend? Robson: Oh boy, let me see… a pretender, Robson the pretender… I think there are quite a few of them here inside me! Marcos: so, let’s see who does it best then! Robson: well, you know that Jazz and Blues are two rhythms in which improvisation and creativity are a key component. Marcos: sure! Robson: they say it is the music of the future. Because in the future, music will be so full of plagiarism and imitation that you’ll listen to something and you’ll always have the feeling you’ve heard it before already. That’s because you’re listening to the imitation of the imitation. But with Blues and Jazz, you set up a “bed” and you can keep playing around on top of it.
It will never be the same thing. Marcos: this “duel” of ours is, of course, just a healthy joke… Robson: Errrrr…. Marcos: but today I’m gonna kick your ass. Bring it on, your Blues! Robson: yes, please do kick my ass! And you better kick it hard. Marcos: no one plays the Blues like I do! Robson: well… honestly, I think no one plays the Blues like “I” do! No one plays it WELL like you do Marcos: no!! no one plays it well like you do! Robson: Maybe no one plays it as POORLY as I do. you’re the best. Marcos: I am. Robson: oh, really?! Marcos: yep. Robson: So show us. Marcos: no, you start!
Elders first. Robson: Oh boy… And they say black people do not show their age… Marcos: so off you go! Is it one of you compositions? Robson: Yes it is. Marcos: wow! That’s beautiful! Geez! What am I gonna do now?? Robson: It’s all just a joke. Marcos: what am I gonna do… after this… Robson: a BAD joke! Now your turn. This time you make a GOOD joke! Marcos: you’ve played a very “classy” Blues, right? Robson: yes. Marcos: I’m going to play something a bit more “country”. more like a “bumpkin Blues” Robson: a “farm boy Blues”? Marcos: check this out. Pay attention to the thumb. Robson: Mississipi! Marcos: Nice! Robson: You’re such a Blues player yourself! Marcos: I’ve learned it from you Robson: No no no, you’re a Blues man!
