Publicado em: Saturday, September 15, 2007 by zecalouro
Let’s start this Samba Saturday at Loronix with a classy album, awaited by several Loronixers since it was presented months ago. I was very reluctant to make this album, since it is a gift given by a very special friend on a very special day, my first flight to Sao Paulo as zecalouro. It was also my first chance to meet Caetano Rodrigues.
I want to say thank you, thank you, and thank you to Mr. W. He was the first Loronixer I could meet in Sao Paulo and I will never forget the support and this beautiful gift he gave and I kindly present here to Loronixers.
This is Aracy de Almeida – Noel Rosa | 78rpm (1950), for Continental, which is a “box set” featuring three different Aracy de Almeida 78rpm recordings with Noel Rosa compositions. The three discs were recorded for the occasion; they are numbered in a sequence as 16317-A-B, 16318-A-B and 16319-A-B. Maestro Radames Gnattali is in charge of arrangements and three different groups back Aracy de Almeida on each disc, the first one features Quarteto Continental, the second has Francisco Sergi e Sua Orquestra and the third brings Vero e Sua Orquestra. My apologies to the friends who were waiting several months for this release, this collection is truly amazing and now I understand their worry. Tracks include:
01 – Palpite Infeliz (Noel Rosa) – Quarteto Continental
02 – Conversa de Botequim (Noel Rosa / Vadico) – Quarteto Continental
03 – Feitico da Vila (Noel Rosa / Vadico) – Francisco Sergi e Sua Orquestra
04 – Ultimo Desejo (Noel Rosa) – Francisco Sergi e Sua Orquestra
05 – Nao Tem Traducao (Noel Rosa) – Vero e Sua Orquestra
06 – O x do Problema (Noel Rosa) – Vero e Sua Orquestra
Essa coleção de 78 Rpm pode ser buscada no 300 Discos. O segundo volume também está disponível lá.
