Hello, Good Evening! I want to start the day with something new and really unique, which is the legendary and pioneer instrumental / vocal band A Cor do Som. How many friends who live outside Brazil had the chance to hear or even know the existence of this group? Probably less than a half by this parrot estimates, actually, these guys made wonderful things and I think they deserve much more recognition.
Some friends in Brazil would say they do not belong to Loronix, but I think they are even a missing piece. A Cor do Som blends several different styles with the strength of never loosing focus on Brazilian music. They mix jazz, rock, progressive, frevo, samba, baiao, MPB and are great performers as instrumental or vocal group. I’m showing A Cor do Som album that has only instrumental tracks and I’m sure that later we will be amazed when hearing them singing as a vocal group.
This is A Cor do Som – Ao Vivo, no Montreux Internacional Jazz Festival (1979), for Warner, featuring the original formation with Mu (keyboards), Dadi (bass), Armandinho (guitarra baiana), Aroldo (guitarra baiana), Gustavo (drums) and Ary (percussion). Armandinho is the same renowned guitarist, inventor of the guitarra baiana, an electrified version of cavaquinho. Someone said this week that every Montreux Festival cut is worth checking. This one really rocks. Tracks include:
01 – Danca Saci (Mu)
02 – Chegando da Terra (Armandinho)
03 – Arpoador (Armandinho / Dadi / Gustavo / Mu)
04 – Cochabamba (Moraes Moreira / Aroldo)
05 – Brejeiro (Ernesto Nazareth)
06 – Espirito Infantil (Mu)
07 – Festa na Rua (Mu / Dadi / Armandinho / Aroldo)
08 – Eleanor Rigby (Lennon / McCartney)
