As Announced on Thursday's WWShow: Hermeto Pascoal

On Thursday, Gilles Peterson mentioned Hermeto Pascoal, a freaky but ingenious Brazilian composer who "uses nature as a basis for his compositions" and who played with Miles Davis.
Since man's (lost) closeness to nature is a recent recurring theme, I thought, I'd post on Hermeto.
Check out his gorgeous 10 minute gig on the Montreux Jazz Festival 1979 (upper video), which might be hard to follow if you're not into this kind of music.
The funnier 'close to nature' clip, that was also announced by Gilles, is the lower one with him and six other half naked men playing water-filled bottles in a lagoon.
