Link original: Zaccarias e Sua Secao de Palhetas – Palhetas Espetaculares (1962)
Publicado em: Sunday, June 24, 2007 by zecalouro
I’m only bringing this album to the spotlight due relevant information sent by an anonymous contributir today. Maestro Zacarrias = Zaccarias e Sua Secao de Pahetas | Palhetas Espetaculares (1962), was release in December 14, with no information on personnel listing. I’m bringing it to the spotlight due a relevant information sent by an anonymous friend that could gather personnel listing from “Parada de LPs”, written by Silvio Tulio.
Silvio Tulio in May 03, 1962, wrote complete personnel listing on his article, which I’m making available bellow, updating the original post. Friends of Brazil-on-Guitar will be really excited discovering an unknown Baden Powell album as sideman. Thanks anonymous, I hope you come back to tell us how can you dig such old newspapers like this one.
This is the original post with personnel update. Do not miss original anonymous writing in comments section and download package with better cover artwork scans.
This record makes a nice explanation of the classification of musical instruments at back cover linear notes as families of musical instruments as they are organized in an orchestra. I will try to summarize to our friends.
Musical instruments are grouped into families based on how they make sounds. In an orchestra, musicians sit together in these family groupings. But this is not that simple, some instruments seem to be of a family and by the way sound is produced, they are categorized in another. For instance, I heard somewhere that sax and clarinets are from the same group of the acoustic guitar, since the concept is a wood that vibrates on both cases. In Brazil, this family is known as Familia das Palhetas.
Confusing… Anyway, this record is all about the Palhetas with sax and clarinets. This is Zaccarias e Sua Secao de Palhetas – Palhetas Espetaculares (1962), for RCA Victor, wonderful orchestra album, all about the Palhetas family. Zaccarias – by the way, a new Brazilian Maestro at Loronix – organizes his Secao de Palhetas as 5 saxophones and 4 clarinets, backed up by a rhythmic section as of bass, piano, drums, guitar and percussion. Another nice release that was kindly sent to zecalouro by our great friend Caetano Rodrigues. I invite you to check this wonderful album and share your comments with us. Tracks include:
