Link original: Paul Desmond – From The Hot Afternoon (1969)

It is amazing the bridge established between Brazil and United States in both directions at the golden age of Bossa Nova in the 60’s. Yesterday, we had an album recorded in Brazil by Herbie Mann, today we close the roundtrip showing an LP recorded in the United States featuring Brazilian musicians and repertoire.

This is Paul Desmond – From the Hot Afternoon (1969), for A&M, featuring a repertoire with Milton Nascimento, Edu Lobo (guitar) and Airto Moreira (drums). Edu Lobo presents four songs in this album and is accompanied by his wife at that time, Wanda de Sa. Orchestral arrangements are by Don Sebesky. The early Milton Nascimento compositions makes the difference in this album considered by Caetano Rodrigues, as “Muuuuuuito Bom” in that unique way Caetano uses to say when an album is above the average. Thanks for this nice one, Caetano. Tracks include:

For those of you not familiar with Paul Desmond he had a long association with Dave Brubeck and their albums together are for the most part classics in jazz. Perhaps you will be familiar with the overplayed “Take Five” which of course is Desmond with Brubeck. If you relaly want to hear him at his best check out a track called “Le Souk” from one of the earlier Brubeck-Desmond collaborations.

Since i became an Edu Lobo maniac fan i´ve searched for this record. I´ve bougth it a few years ago and got really happy of having this album. Now it´s at Loronix for the pleasure of Loronixers. Another great job of Caetano Rodrigues and zecalouro. There are another bossa albums from Desmond that I really Love, wich is the one named “Take ten”.

Hi Zeca,

There is an interesting fact about this record. Wanda Sa said in the new liner notes for the CD reissue that the tone was very low for her voice, and she almost couldn`t sing the music “To say goodbye”. But Paul Desmond loved her singing and decided to keep it in the disc. In fact, it is very nice…

Gave this album a second chance today and I was very pleasantly surprised. Great album! Very relaxing without boring me.

O site 300 discos dá outro link para baixar, que por sinal encontra-se desabilitado já. Caramba, tem muito disco bom aqui, mas só pra olhar a capa e outras mínimas informações. Já ouvir, daí fica difícil. Uma grande quantidade já não tem mais para baixar.
