Link original: Waldir Calmon – Mambos! Nr. 2 (1957) 10-inch
Publicado em: Tuesday, July 31, 2007 by zecalouro
Copacabana was really the greatest record label in the 50’s and early 60’s. No question. Take today as an example, we had the great Moacyr Silva 10-inch and now another 10-inch with a compilation of 78rpms recorded by Waldir Calmon. The covers are always nice and sometimes ahead of time in terms of design and innovation. I cannot point the best one between both Copacabana albums released today.
This is Waldir Calmon – Mambos! Nr. 2 (1957), for Copacabana, a compilation of early songs released at the 78rpm format. This is also the continuation of one of the most successful posts at Loronix, Mambos! by the same Brazilian pianist Waldir Calmon. The eight songs available at Mambos! Nr. 2 range from 1953 to 1957 with Waldir Calmon and orchestra delivering a dancing party full of, let’s say, Mambos! Tracks include:
01 – Mambo Charleston (Salvador Rangel) Mambo 78rpm: 5.249 / 1954
02 – Cumaná (Allen / Hillman / Spina) Guaracha 78rpm: 5.161 / 1953
03 – Jumbo Jumbo (Perez Prado) Mambo 78rpm: 5.402 / 1955
04 – Pianolo (Perez Prado) Mambo 78rpm: 5.118 / 1953
05 – Chivirico En Broadway (Leoncio Diez) Mambo 78rpm: 5.560 / 1957
06 – Índia (José Asunción Flores / Manuel Ortiz Guerrero) Bolero-mambo 78rpm: 5.084 / 1953
07 – Skokiaan (A. Msarurgwa) Mambo 78rpm: 5.402 / 1955
08 – Rachmaninoff (L. Milena) Mambo 78rpm: 5.118 / 1953
