This is a nice record that is only here because I got amazed with this cover on Caetano’s Bossa Nova book and I could track it down for Loronixers. In my opinion one of the greatest cover I have ever seen, very representative, with someone throwing away some records in favor of our lovely Bossa Nova, very funny.

Meet, The Singers Inc. – Bossa Nova! (1963), for Valiant, as people use to say, very groovy and nice vocals by George Tipton, Ian Feebairn-Smith, Perry Botkin Jr., James Bryant (The Singers Inc.), backed by Howard Roberts (guitar), Don Shelton (sax), Lyle Ritz (bass) and Larry Bunker, Milt Holland, Jerry Williams, Emil Richards, Chico Guerrero (percussion). Let’s wait for Loronixers’ feedback on this release. Tracks include:

01 – Liebestraum
02 – You Stepped out of a Dream
03 – Volare
04 – Where or When
05 – In a Little Spanish Town
06 – What you Come Home, Bill Baily
07 – Ja-Da
08 – Could Have Danced all Night
09 – Bye Bye Blues
10 – Man’selle
11 – So Rare
12 – Baubles, Bangles and Beads

Hello, Good Night! It is hard to remember after some months, since the first Waldir Calmon LP out of his two “Arpege” series was made available at Loronix. I remember that time that someone came to me saying that his father, as a long time fan of Waldir Calmon, was really amazed to hear that record after several years and that he would me really thrilled if he could get the second one.

I did not forget this thing, Loronix was at the beginning and I got really impressed to make someone available on such way. That’s the reason for Waldir Calmon e Seu Conjunto – Uma Noite no Arpege Nr.2 (1957), for Radio. It’s a nice record, perhaps such like it was the music performed by Waldir Calmon on his Arpege nightclub. I was reluctant to share this LP; it was taken from a vinyl full of scratches that are still audible. However, the scratches do not spoil the experience. Tracks include:

01 – Samba no Arpège (Waldir Calmon / Luis Bandeira)
02 – Fantasia Carioca (Alcyr Pires Vermelho / Osvaldo Santiago)
03 – Apito no Samba (Luis Bandeira)
04 – Inspiração (Bruno Marnet)
05 – Foi Despacho (Sereno)
06 – Evocação (Nelson Ferreira)
07 – Dorinha Meu Amor (José Francisco de Freitas)
08 – Arrasta a Sandália (Osvaldo Marques / Benedito Lacerda)
09 – Jalousie (J. Gade)
10 – Adios Pampa Mia (Francisco Canaro / Mariano Mores / Pelay)
11 – Bicharada (Djalma Ferreira)
12 – Mambo En España (R. Marques)

Thelma Soares, Thelma, back to Loronix with her first US release, kindly provided by Caetano Rodrigues. The first Thelma LP is already here and the feedback was great. Let’s see what happens with this one. Meet, Thelma – The Haunting New Voice From Brazil (N/A), for Columbia, a record that I could not identify the exactly release date and probably is uncertain for many.

By the time of Thelma first release at Loronix, her debut LP with the participation of Vinicius de Moraes, some friends thought that this LP was an international release with the same tracks, actually this is different and I invite you to check how it is. Tracks include:

01 – Samba do Carioca
02 – Samba de Uma Nota Só
03 – Corcovado
04 – Camará
05 – Chega de Mentira
06 – Garota de Ipanema
07 – Desafinado
08 – Deus Brasileiro
09 – Samba de Roda da Bahia
10 – Deixa
11 – Insensatez

Publicado em: Monday, January 01, 2007 by zecalouro

I made some research about this LP almost a year ago and for an unknown reason I forgot its existence to consider as a post. Came back to memory last year, actually, last Friday, and it is so cool that I decided to show to Loronixer with no other additional research.

Maybe I’m wrong but, Som Ambiente – Som Ambiente (1972), for CID, is in fact some sort of Azymuth embryo/early stage. I’m not sure about the whole personnel listing, but I have the assumption that Jose Roberto Bertrami organ can be heard in all tracks. The back cover says that Durval Ferreira is in charge of Artistic Direction. Another curiosity about this LP is a supposed photo of the legendary Marcos Valle at the front cover, that guy on a restaurant with a girl. If any Loronix friend has additional info about this release, please let us know. Tracks include:

01 – O Bofe (Erasmo Carlos / Roberto Carlos)
02 – Here’s That Rainy Day (J. Burke / J. V. Heusen)
03 – Bossa Nova In Broadway (Dave Brubeck)
04 – They Long To Be (Close To You) (H. Davis / Burt Bacharach) — People (Funny Girl) (B. Merrill / J. Styne) — Mr Lucky (Henry Mancini)
05 – Love Theme From “The Godfather” (Speak Softly Love) (Nino Rota / L. Kusik)
06 – Where Is The Love (J. Dorn / A. Mardin)
07 – Águas de Março (Tom Jobim) — Bala Com Bala (Aldir Blanc / João Bosco)
08 – Theme From “Summer Of 42” (Michel Legrand / A. Bergman / M. Bergman)
09 – By The Time I Get To Phoenix (J. Webb) — The Shadow Of Your Smile (J. Madel / Paul Francis Webster)
10 – Days Of Wine And Roses (Henry Mancini / Mercer) — Satin Doll (Duke Ellington) — April In Paris (H. Duke) — Lill’darling (N. Hefty)

This is another one sent by a friend that I could not give the attention needed. This friend is not a Loronixer, so I have been postponing this LP for months. In fact, the new try I gave to it last week was born by the several wonderful orchestra LPs sent by Caetano Rodrigues in the last two months. Thanks to Caetano Rodrigues, zecalouro hears is now well trained to Orchestras.

This is Jean Kelson e Sua Orquestra – Berimbau & Bigorrilho (1964), for Copacabana, really nice piece of instrumental orchestra album with a proposition to blend orchestra arrangements with two peculiar percussion instruments, berimbau and bigorrilho. Nice idea, but the outcome is something close to bossa jazz with brass with foreground, mainly trombones.

Several doubts I have about this record should be solved with personnel listing, which I have been trying to track down with no success. Tracks include:

01 – Berimbau (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Samba de Negro (Roberto Corrêa / Sylvio Son)
03 – Catolé (Murillo Latini / Bob Nelson)
04 – Munganga (Jean Kelson / Almeida Rego)
05 – Agô Agô (Milton Castro / Glória Felipe)
06 – Vou Pra Senzala (Milton Castro / Aloísio Santana)
07 – Bigorrilho (Sebastião Gomes / Paquito / Romeu Gentil)
08 – Saci Pererê (Rildo Hora / Marcos André)
09 – Vamos Bigorrilhar (Roberto Corrêa / Sylvio Son)
10 – Dança do Bigorrilho (Astor Silva / Othon Russo)
11 – Jogado Fora (João Mello)
12 – Na Base do Bigorrilho (Alcyr Pires Vermelho / Nazareno de Brito)

Os mais atentos devem ter notado que acabamos de publicar a última postagem de 2006. Até o momento foram 658 postagens, incluindo discos vindos do site atual do Loronix e aqueles que não estão mais no ar, mas foram encontrados na Internet Wayback Machine.  Vamos entrar no ano em que há o maior número de postagens: sem contar as que somente se encontram na Internet Wayback Machine, o site atual indica 1156 postagens em 2007.

Durante as próximas semanas devo reduzir o ritmo de publicação, pois as minhas atividades de final de ano estão absorvendo quase todo o meu tempo. Mas, assim que der, volto ao número habitual de postagens.

Feliz 2007 para todos  🙂 !


PS: para quem está curioso sobre o destino do Zecalouro, ontem foi publicado um tributo ao Zeca e ao Loronix no Global Groove.  Entre outras coisas, o Moos (proprietário do blog) diz que conseguiu falar com ele na semana passada, que o Zeca está bem e que voltou a trabalhar como músico.

If I resist tomorrow, this is the last post of the year. A last post of a year should be representative. I’ve been thinking about what artist should be “representative” to a last post of a year. The answer came easy, no question, Luiz Bonfa.
This is not a zecalouro choice, but Loronixers choice, based on feedback, statements and everything I could heard from you, specially the many friends who had contact with Luiz Bonfa for the first time at Loronix.

Happy New Year Loronixers, I hope we have a great 2007 with our families, friends, people that we love, our work, careers and our music. I’m sure that we have been learn a lot about Brazilian Music at Loronix, together, as a community, a awesome community created around the music from Brazil with more than a hundred countries on this planet. Thanks a million, Loronixers!

A friend of us shouted yesterday for this artist and I decided to give a try, being amazed since then with this LP, personnel and production. I think it is reasonable to say that Arnoldo Medeiros is more a poetry than an singer or musician, he started his career in the 60’s, taking part on several different Festivais da Cancao throughout this decade and since then, being recorded by many renowned artists, such as: Doris Monteiro, Leny Andrade, Erlon Chaves, Taiguara and Many others.

Arnoldo Medeiros released only one LP and that is what zecalouro wants to show you, Arnoldo Medeiros – O Homem, O Poeta (1975), for RCA Camdem, featuring a top-notch personnel listing, highlighted bellow with tracks.

Lovely, we have here a tiny little piece of record provided by Mr. W. with several nice surprises and curiosities that you would like very much. Actually, Arara Azul sent also a Carmen Miranda LP as zecalouro Christmas gift, but it is a complex post that I’m saving for later. Thanks Mr. W. Thanks Arara Azul.

This is Ann Sothern, Jane Powell, Carmen Miranda and Danny Scholl – Nancy Goes to Rio (1950) – 10″, for MGM, released in Brazil as Romance Carioca. Can you believe that? It is true, this LP has also the participation of O Bando da Lua and landmarks the first international performance of the Brazilian genre Baiao with the song Caroom Pa Pa.

Mr. W. gave all details, saying also that a special attention should be given to the song IPSE-AI-O, a Samba, composed by Ray Gilbert, featuring O Bando da Lua. Another track to be highlighted is Love Is Like This, performed by Jane Powell, which is in fact Carinhoso (Pixinguinha) with English lyrics by Ray Gilbert. Breathtaking, short and amazing, don’t miss it. Tracks include:

01 – Love Is Like This – Jane Powell – (Gilbert-Vianna)
02 – Time and Time Again – Ann Sothern and Danny Scholl – (Brent-Spielman)

Hello, Good night! What a wonderful night, everybody is happy with the celebrations of the New Years Eve. The streets are full; the supermarket is insane with everybody buying industrial amounts of alcoholic beverages. Fireworks pop once in a while, what a wonderful time. If you live in the 12th floor you must be experienced, it’s exactly the distance that fireworks explode when launched from the ground. It is time to take care while eating, using knifes, shaving; the World War III can enter your home in a flash. Take care, man!

Nothing better than noise to combat noise, if you are planning to make a party to enter 2007 kicking around the floor, do not miss Carnaval RCA (1963) a few posts ago and do not stay away from Mr. Samba – Mr. Samba e Seus “Skindos” Ritmicos (1962), for RGE. Mr. Samba is an obscure group that released two LPs for RGE in the early 60’s with great swinging, arrangements and an unknown personnel listing. The first release is their second LP, already available at Loronix. In spite it is a perfect LP for dancing on New Years Eve we have a nice album here. Tracks include:

01 – Não Ponha a Mão (Bucy Moreira / Arnô Canegal / Mutt)
02 – Enlouqueci (Luis Soberano / Waldomiro Pereira / João Sales)
03 – Tema Para Dedé (Nelsinho)

Geraldo Vespar, Maestro, arranger, composer, and guitarist is truly a genius. A musician that influenced several generations through years. As guitarrist, an innovator, positioned at the same level as Baden Powell and others. I’m making something different with this post making available a link to the song Diz que Fui por Ai (Ze Ketti / Hortencio Rocha) with Nara Leao and Geraldo Vespar on guitar from the LP Nara (1964), for Elenco.

Geraldo Vespar plays with a single percussion accompaniment, starting a new style of playing. Make a try; even if you are not a musician, you will be pleased with Vespar guitar backing Nara.

This is Diz que Fui por Ai: 

This is Geraldo Vespar – Eu e o Violao (1968), for Parlophone, another release provided by Caetano Rodrigues that I was saving for the right time, but several Loronix friends were requesting this LP, which is not easy to find, and I could not wait longer. Such beautiful that is self-explanatory, nothing can go wrong with Eu e o Violao. Tracks include:

01 – Sá Marina (Antônio Adolfo / Tibério Gaspar)
02 – Eu e a Brisa (Johnny Alf)
03 – Desencontro (Chico Buarque)

One of the several things I learned with Loronix is to appreciate Tania Maria. This woman plays wild, never cheats you and seems like is having fun and doing the best she can on every record she makes. A friend of mine said that she plays like a man, not a correct statement that I disagree, anyway, a nice definition of her style.

I pretty new to her and I’m still navigating on her discography to make the best picks. Just find this one last week and it is probably one of her best releases. This is Tania Maria – The Lady From Brazil (1987), for EMI-Odeon and produced by George Duke for George Duke Enterprises Inc. Breathless recording set with a long personnel listing, different on each track. I will pick the well known ones, as follows: Tania Maria (piano, keyboard, percussion, vocal), George Duke (sinclavier), Paulinho da Costa (percussion), Steve Gadd (drums), Anthony Jackson and Eddie Gomez (bass), George Howard (sax), among others. This LP is out of print, the last Tania Maria release, Via Brasil, was reported in print and removed. Tracks include:

01 – The Lady From Brazil (Tânia Maria / Trish Sisson)
02 – I Should Nlot Call You (Tânia Maria / Rob Crocker)

Conjunto Castelinho – Os Donos da Bossa (1964)

Link original: Conjunto Castelinho – Os Donos da Bossa (1964)
Publicado em: Friday, December 29, 2006 by zecalouro

Let’s make it as straightforward as possible. This is Conjunto Castelinho – Os Donos da Bossa (1964), for Spot, I have been wondering if Spot executives in 1964 were really decided to release this wonderful instrumental LP with no additional information about it just to make zecalouro nuts in 2006. This is my assumption.

I have heard for some friends that Eumir Deodato is behind this LP. They might be sure. Who has this info? What are the musicians behind this group? This is the first Spot LP released at Loronix. All Spot cover artwork follows this style, simple, but really effective and nice to see. Tracks include:

01 – Menina Certinha (Durval Ferreira / Luis Fernando Freire)
02 – Samba de Verão (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
03 – Cesteiro Que Faz Um Cesto Faz Um Cento (Toni Vestane)
04 – Baiãozinho (Eumir Deodato)
05 – Muito à Vontade (João Donato)
06 – Samba Novo (Durval Ferreira / Newton Chaves)
07 – Esperança (Durval Ferreira / Luis Fernando Freire / Maurício Einhorn)
08 – Cheers (Henry Mancini)
09 – Ainda Mais Lindo (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
10 – Diz Que Fui Por Aí (Zé Keti / H. Rocha)
11 – Só Por Amor (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
12 – Ela É Carioca (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
13 – Pouca Duração (Pacífico Mascarenhas)


Como discutido nos comentários originais desta postagem e também nessa postagem do Brazilliance, este, na realidade, é o disco ImpulsO!, do Eumir Deodato & Os Catedráticos, que já publicamos aqui e cuja capa original segue abaixo.

I have been punishing myself since I got recommendations of nice Loronix friends to focus on Sebastiao Tapajos, the Brazilian violonista (acoustic guitar) player with more than 50 recorded albums. I don’t know who blame for this fault (the fact zecalouro never took Sebastiao Tapajos for a try), but hearing Sebastiao Tapajos LPs for the first time is such like receiving a new bike from daddy.

Let’s start with Sebastiao Tapajos with style, this is Zimbo Trio & Sebastiao Tapajos – Zimbo Convida Sebastiao Tapajos (1981), for Clam, really nice release, I have been hearing this LP every day and on each new try there are new treasures to discover. Another self-explanatory release. Tracks include:

01 – Danca (Luiz Chaves)
02 – Voce Nao Pode Ouricar (Alexandre Dantas do Amaral)
03 – Marajo (Sebastiao Tapajos / Rubens Barsotti)
04 – Preludio para Karen (Sebastiao Tapajos / Mauricio Einhorn)
05 – Um Pro Zimbo (Sebastiao Tapajos / Mauricio Einhorn)
06 – Recado pro Tiao Tapajos (Luiz Chaves)
07 – Lua Joa (Sebastiao Tapajos)
08 – No Balanco do Vovo (Luiz Chaves)
09 – Igarapes (Sebastiao Tapajos / Mauricio Einhorn)
10 – Viajeiro (Luiz Chaves)
11 – Sincopando (Sebastiao Tapajos / Luiz Chaves / Amilton Godoy)

That’s a unique post of a unique musician. Rubens Bassini, the first time at Loronix as a solo artist and found on several LPs from the 60’s as a sideman. This is Rubens Bassini – Ritmo Fantastico, Rubens Bassini e os 11 Magnificos (1961), for Pawal. In spite his intense activity as a sideman on several others LPs, Rubens Bassini released only two solo albums throughout his entire career, this is the fist.

The blending of “Latin” instruments, such as: Bongos and Maracas with Bossa Nova and Samba rhythms, is the strength of Rubens Bassini and what makes him an unique musician. Bongos and Maracas never had a place on Brazilian music, Rubens Bassini pioneer the introduction of these elements and never had a follower. Thanks Caetano for this amazing LP, with Rubens delivering what is used to call as “Latin Groove” on top of Bossa Nova and some US standards. Born in 1933, Rubens has died very early with the age of 52 in 1985. Stay with tracks and the complete listing of Os 11 Magnificos. Tracks include:

Norma Bengell – Ooooooh! Norma (1959)

Publicado em: Thursday, December 28, 2006 by zecalouro

I remember on that old vinyl fair in SP that Caetano Rodrigues found this LP on a perfect shape and with a very reasonable price, a fraction of the price we are used to see on e-Bay. I left Sao Paulo thinking about sharing this LP with Loronixers and I don’t know why simply forgot to make it.

Anyway, it is not that late for Norma Bengell – OoooooH! Norma (1959), for Odeon. Mr. D&C is a big fan of Norma Bengell and this LP particularly. Unfortunately, after this wonderful debut LP, Norma Bengell decided to embrace another career as an actress and film director with great success. Only few Brazilians know that Norma was a singer before deciding to be an actress. I hope you enjoy this LP that is nice from star to end with arrangements by Maestro Lindolfo Gaya and an amazing cover that made a lot of noise in 1959, a scandal at that time. Tracks include:

01 – Sucedeu Assim (Tom Jobim / Marino Pinto)
02 – This Can’t Be Love (R. Rodgers / L. Hart)
03 – Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
04 – On The Sunny Side Of The Street (D. Fields / J. McHugh)
05 – Eu Preciso de Você (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
06 – C’est Si Bon (H. Betti / A. Hornez)

Ribamar e Seu Conjunto – Duas Faces de Amor (196?)

Link original: Ribamar e Seu Conjunto – Duas Faces de Amor (196?)
Publicado em: Thursday, December 28, 2006 by zecalouro

Hello, Good Night! I have to admit that sometimes I use to accept assumptions as facts. Not a good behavior that once in a while takes you by surprise. Ribamar is a nice example. On my green head, Ribamar was always associated as a composer and eventually a singer, taking as example his LP with Tito Madi.

Ribamar is not only a composer, he is also an excellent pianist, working at nightclubs and starting his professional career accompanying Dolores Duran. Let’s see what happens with Ribamar e Seu Conjunto – Duas Faces de Amor (196?), for Equipe. There something obscure with this LP, the discographies I could search, it is listed as Duas Faces de Amor, but as you can see by the front cover, the title is different, Nosso Encontro de Amor. Since this LP was given to zecalouro several months ago, I cannot remember the friend who gave it to check this issue. Anyway, if this friend is still around, please comment or send an email, it will be greatly appreciated. Tracks include:

01 – A Noite do Meu Bem (Dolores Duran)
02 – Segredo (Herivelto Martins / Marino Pinto) — Nunca (Lupicínio Rodrigues)
03 – Duas Contas (Garoto) — Dó-ré-mi (Fernando César)
04 – Alguém Como Tu (José Maria de Abreu / Jair Amorim) — Não Tem Solução (Dorival Caymmi / Carlos Guinle)
05 – Cansei de Ilusões (Tito Madi) — Molambo (Jaime Florence “Meira” / Augusto Mesquita)
06 – Canção de Amor (Elano de Paula / Chocolate) — Canção da Volta (Ismael Netto / Antônio Maria)
07 – Não Tenho Você (Paulo Marques / Ari Monteiro) — Se Você Se Importasse (Peterpan)
08 – Folhas Mortas (Ary Barroso) — Prece (Vadico / Marino Pinto)
09 – Ninguém Me Ama (Fernando Lobo / Antônio Maria) — Se Eu Morrese Amanhã (Antônio Maria)
10 – Foi a Noite (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça) — Neste Mesmo Lugar (Klécius Caldas / Armando Cavalcanti)


Este disco pode ser buscado no Parallel Realities Studio. A capa original do disco vai abaixo. A que foi postada no Loronix é a que está acima, mas ela é do relançamento do disco, que foi feito com outro nome (Nosso Encontro de Amor).


Mais interessante ainda, como destacado pelo AD nos comentários, há uma outra versão do mesmo disco com o nome “Bastante íntimo”, com as duas capas que vão na sequência e – pasmem mais uma vez – com o nome do grupo igual a “Quinteto Romântico”. O que essas gravadoras  faziam no passado, não?  Esta e outras histórias semelhantes estão lá no site do AD (Brazilliance), nesta postagem.

Pery Ribeiro. That’s right. If I search my mailbox for the sentence “do not forget Pery Muito Mais Bossa”, the results are many. I lost an HD a couple of days ago. When I spoke with a friend about the lost, the first thing he said, lips shaking, was: “Is Pery Muito Mais Bossa lost?”. So, let’s make it.

This is Pery Ribeiro – Pery Muito Mais Bossa (1964), for Odeon, one of the most celebrated albums from Pery Ribeiro earlier years. Unfortunately and somehow interesting, the information available about this album personnel and set details are spare and I need the help of Loronixers on additional info about it. Tracks include:

01 – Berimbau (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Morena Arpoador (Luis Bonfá / Maria Helena Toledo)
03 – Baiãozinho (Eumir Deodato)
04 – Vai de Vez (Luis Fernando Freire / Roberto Menescal)

This is the second contribution of a great friend that, from now on, we will call as the already legendary Mr. E. What a great contribution, a release that puts an end on several doubts and assumptions taken from spare sources.

Meet, Conjuntos de Jose Marinho, Netinho, Waltel Branco e Joao Donato – Dance Conosco (1960), for Copacabana. Yes! That’s great Mr. E. this is a sought-after LP, featuring four top-notch musicians and their respective accompaniment bands or Seus Conjuntos.

Joao Donato plays trombone on his tracks with the help of Altamiro Carrilho on flute. Jose Marinho plays piano, Netinho, clarinet and Waltel Branco plays guitar. Another curiosity, everybody says that the cover is awful, quite disconnected from the great instrumental music we have inside. I don’t think so, it is a appealing cover and according with Copacabana – the back cover and the linear notes are included with the music -, this is a LP for dancing and the cover is perfect on this idea. Thanks once again, Mr. E. Attention for both Donato instrumental tracks, composed with Joao Gilberto. Tracks include:

01 – La Leyenda Del Beso (Paso Dias / R. Soutullo / J. Vert / E. Reoyo) — José Marinho e Seu Conjunto
02 – Ginga do Caramujo (Orlando Costa ”Maestro Cipó”) — Netinho e Seu Conjunto
03 – Devaneio (Djalma Ferreira / Luis Antônio) — Waltel Branco e Seu Conjunto
04 – Caravan (Mills / Duke Ellington / Tizol) — José Marinho e Seu Conjunto
05 – Mambinho (João Donato) — João Donato e Seu Conjunto with Altamiro Carrilho (flute)
06 – Minha Saudade (João Donato / João Gilberto) — João Donato e Seu Conjunto with Altamiro Carrilho (flute)
07 – Mambo Tropical (José Marinho) — José Marinho e Seu Conjunto
08 – Sob o Luar (Waltel Branco / Ivo Branco) — Waltel Branco e Seu Conjunto

This is the first time this Samba group is released at Loronix, actually the second, since they participated on a Baden Powell and Marcia live concert, Show Recital (1965), as side band. Everybody in Brazil knows who they are, mainly by one of its members that became nationwide famous in the 70’s and 80’s, Mussum, one of the percussionists.

Meet, Os Originais do Samba – O Samba e a Corda… Os Originais a Cacamba (1972), for RCA Victor. I’m amazed by the number of albums Os Originais do Samba released throughout their career, which started in 1969 with their first LP for RCA Victor until their last release, pretty recent, Os Originais de Todos os Sambas (1997), for RGE. Actually, they started in 1960 with the name Os Sete Modernos do Samba, changing to Os Originais do Samba a year later. If you are looking for an original blend of Samba with humor, this is the LP you should take. Tracks include:

01 – Do Lado Direito da Rua Direita (Luis Carlos / Chiquinho)
02 – Catimba Criolo (Wando)
03 – Ciranda Cirandeia (Recife Em Dia de Festa) (Zapata / Carvalho)
04 – Esperanças Perdidas (Adeílton Alves / Delcio Carvalho)

Hello, Good Night! Eliana Pittman seems to be a legend outside Brazil; every friend I speak about her always gives nice feedback of her singing and beauty. This release is from a very early Eliana Pittman, not that early as the previous one with her stepfather Booker, this is her second or third solo release.

Meet Eliana Pittman & Conjunto 3-D – Eliana ao Vivo (1968), for Copacabana, a live set recorded at Teatro de Bolso, Rio de Janeiro when Eliana Pittman was touring to promote her first Copacabana LP, E Preciso Cantar (1967).

Conjunto 3-D, as Antonio Adolfo (piano), Vitor Manga (drums) and Novelli (bass), complemented by Geraldo Azevedo (acoustic guitar), makes the difference, backing Eliana Pittman throughout the set. Tracks include:

If you understand this cover artwork you will understand this LP. Look how Elizeth Cardoso is relaxed and dressing simple clothes on that picture. It seems like she just wake up, took the first thing she saw at her closet and quickly left to this photo session.

That’s exactly the spirit of this record, a relaxed Elizeth Cardoso, not using all of her voice and that vibratos that we are use to listen, she sings Samba on an authentic way, such like on a meeting with friends on a bar to drink some beers. I don’t know what Elizeth had in mind with this LP, probably a transition from the new decade or perhaps just an album that we wanted to make with Sambas together with her friends.

This is Elizeth Cardoso – Falou e Disse (1970), for Copacabana, directed by Moacyr Silva and featuring a top-notch team that should go better with highlights bellow, before tracks.

This is one of the most inquisitive contributions from Caetano Rodrigues so far. A band born in Chicago that makes a fusion of funky, jazz and samba as I never heard before. I know that Breno Sauer is part of this band, but he could not be responsible alone for the strengths of this band and specially this LP.

Meet Made in Brasil – Tudo Joia (1984), for Pausa (Italy), as said, an above the average jazz and samba fusion with nice vocal arrangements featuring Breno Sauer – Piano, Paulo Garcia – Bass & Vocals, Akio Sasajima – Guitar, Neusa Sauer – Lead Vocals, Ron Dewar – Tenor, Roberto Sanchez – Percussion and Phil Gratteau – Drums. If you look for samba jazz with vocals, this is the release for you. It is hard to believe that this group is from Chicago. Tracks include:

02 – Samba Do Avião
03 – Sai Dessa
04 – Arlequin Desconhecido

06 – Fato Consumado

Hello, Good night! I’m making an interval between the Sabadabada update announcement post and this one just to give you time to a full journey on Peter’s site.

This is Sacha – Drinks After Midnight (1965), for London, another release from the owner of the legendary Sacha’s Nightclub in Leme, Rio de Janeiro.

Sacha’s nightclub lasts longer; it was opened until the late 90’s very close to the place that zecalouro lives. Sacha is from Austria and came to Brazil in 1948, founding Sacha’s only a couple of years before his arriving. Different from the last Sacha release, Drinks after midnight has an orchestra to support Sacha’s piano, conducted and arranged by Maestro Cipo. I know that after these seasons parties you are not in the mood to see drinks, but this is nice record sponsored by Mr. X that you should not miss. Tracks include:

02 – Who’s Sorry Now (T. Snyder / B. Kalmar / H. Ruby)
