It is amazing that Caetano has this LP and I’m very happy to share and introduce Pat Thomas and the music of Lalo Schifrin by this rare and obscure record. This is the first release of an international singer at this new journey of international Bossa Nova music. I’m not sure, but I think that many friends all around the world never had the chance to hear Pat Thomas. Let’s see what happens here.

This is Pat Thomas – Desafinado (60’s), for MGM, featuring the obscure Chicago singer Pat Thomas, the arrangements of Lalo Schifrin and the production of Creed Taylor. Personnel listing is also of note, which includes the guitar of Laurindo Almeida and the flute of Bud Shank, among others. This is self-explanatory, a true jewel kindly sent by Caetano to Loronixers. Tracks include:


Bud Shank (flute), Al Hendrickson and Laurindo Almeida (guitar), Buddy Clark (bass), Mel Lewis (drums), Frank Flynn, Mel Lewis, Frank Guerrero and Jack Del Rio (drums and percussion), Gerald Vinci, Amerigo Marino, Victor Arno, Paul Shure, Erno Neufeld and Robert Barene (violin), Joseph DiFiore and Alvin Dinkin (viola), Armand Kaproff and Edgar Lustgarden (cello) and Lalo Schifrin (arranger and conductor).

Track List

01 – Carnival
02 – Desafinado
03 – Baia

Nunca ouvi falar nesse cantor, mas com essa combinação de arranjadores e músicos, ele está imperdível…

É cantora, veja a capa.

Ela é a moça, a Pat Thomas.

Abraços, zeca

Hi … would love to hear this but every time I try to download it I get “decompression failed.” Could you re-up? Thanks.
zecalouro on Friday, 02 March, 2007

How are you?

You are right. Yesterday, I had to upload it on several tries. Track 01 is the issue and a replacement is on the way.

Cheers, zeca

O mais interessante e curioso de Desafinado é que, salvo a participação discreta de L. Almeida, não tem brasileiro na parada. É uma interpretação de nossa música 100% gringa, incluindo o toque argentino de Lalo Schifrin nos arranjos. Tenho esse em vinil há uns 200 anos.

Alguém aí reparou como Pat Thomas se parece com Ruth de Souza?
zecalouro on Friday, 02 March, 2007


É a Ruth de Souza esculpida em carrara, especialmente o olhar.

Abraços, zeca

Ola Caetaaaanoo!
Very nice album- again I am happy and smiling all around my face – another one of my top favourite sax and flute palyers: This time Bud Shank on a nice bossa jazz vocal album.
This cover is great- I like apples-if Caetano eats every day one apple he will be 100 years old-I wish this

Best wishes

Existem discos do Lalo Schifrin com muitas músicas brasileiras, até discos inteiros “temáticos” sobre a música brasileira. Se um dia você postar, muitos vão gostar, garanto. Valeu!

this is so good zeca, you make life much more bearable! Before you could not get any of this music and if you did, it was very expensive! Now its so easy, my Brazilian music education is now underway! Much love, abracos, Macaco

My name is Patrica Phillips. I want to thank your site for playing my Aunt’s album. She was a great singer and a great woman. I appreciate all the comments made on her vioce and the arrangemenof the whole project. She is a voice that will be missed.

I had no idea Pat Thomas had a whole album out. My father-in-law will be thrilled.

Anyway, I think there was a slight skip right at the beginning of track 2 (Desafinado). This track happens to be on a CD called Hey Look What I Found #11. I could try to get a rip to you, but I am not really sure how to do that.

I’ve tried to upload my rip of track 2 here:

Hopefully this can be accessed.

This was one of my parents favourite albums in the 60’s. But what happened to track 5?? When you go to the download site – track 5 isn’t there. C’est si bon. Ce ne pas si bon!!

thank you so much – it is a masterpiece!! But Track 2 (“Desafinado”), which skips, needs to be re-uped … this track was kindly re-uped by the user eric, but the version he provided is in mono. Thank you so much for this album, it is divine.
