Publicado em: Wednesday, January 17, 2007 by zecalouro
Here we have another LP that zecalouro is keeping locked inside his cage for months. I would never imagine that today would be the best day to show it to Loronixers, I’m feeling a little dizzy today. Several new friends are visiting our community for the first time today. Loronix was recommended by the Oliver Wang from the awesome Soul-Sides.com and I would like to please our new visitors with this legendary record.
This is Antonio Carlos Jobim and Billy Blanco – Sinfonia do Rio de Janeiro (1954), for Continental, a very early 10-inch recording capturing the early Tom Jobim and Billy Blanco compositions on symphonic format with orchestra directed and arrangement by Maestro Radames Gnattali. Actually, Sinfonia do Rio de Janeiro is not one of the most inspired Tom Jobim works, Jobim was still defining his style and did not meet already his long-term partner Vinicius de Moraes.
The historical aspect, the participation of several renowned artists, such as: Nora Ney, Lucio Alves, Os Cariocas, Dick Farney and Elizeth Cardoso and Radames Gnattali Orquestra worth the admission price alone. You should not miss it. Tracks include:
01 – A Montanha – o Sol – o Mar (Sinfonia Popular Em Tempo de Samba) (Billy Blanco / Tom Jobim) – performed by: Nora Ney / Lúcio Alves / Os Cariocas / Gilberto Milfont / Emilinha Borba / Dick Farney /Doris Monteiro / Jorge Goulart / Elizeth Cardoso
02 – Arpoador (Tom Jobim / Billy Blanco)
03 – Noites do Rio (Tom Jobim / Billy Blanco)
04 – O Samba de Amanhã (Tom Jobim / Billy Blanco)
05 – Hino ao Sol (Tom Jobim / Billy Blanco)
