Link original: Nara Leao – Meus Sonhos Dourados (1987)
Publicado em: Monday, August 13, 2007 by zecalouro
This is one of the albums I could bring to Loronix from daddy’s place on Dia dos Pais visit. We took it for a hearing in the afternoon and we had a wonderful time together remembering these standards adapted by Nara Leao and other Brazilian artists, such like, Aloysio de Oliveira, Carlos Colla, Paulo Sergio Valle, Pacifico Mascarenhas and others. Meus Sonhos Dourados has some sadness in the background, perhaps for being one of the last Nara Leao albums, but it is beautiful and solid from the start until the end.
This is Nara Leao – Meus Sonhos Dourados (1987), for Philips, featuring Nara Leao and Roberto Menescal performing the repertoire of their childhood in Copacabana with Portuguese lyrics and Bossa Nova rhythm. I forgot to mention at the introduction, there is a lot of Roberto Menescal here, producing the album, arranging, playing and probably selecting the repertoire with Nara Leao. Check the back cover scan for a picture of Nara Leao and Roberto Menescal at Copacabana beach in the 50’s, they were friends since the age of eleven and this picture was probably taken when they were bellow eighteen. Nara Leao is the best way to start the week in a very nice mood. Tracks include:
