Hello, good evening! I spent a terrific time in Rio de Janeiro today. The sun was up all the time, but the temperature was not hot as summer. The beach was full of people, not the same dudes that lives here, but several friends from other Brazilian cities and countries. Every time I spent a day like this, I come home with nice ideas of posting something very “Carioca”, such like this beautiful homage album released by RGE to celebrate Rio de Janeiro 4th centenarian in 1964. Let’s see.
This is Maestro Carioca & Orquestra Guanabara – Rio Quatrocentao (1964), for RGE. Very nice and really above the average RGE production. The cover artwork is amazing with the word RIO opened, revealing the top of Sugarloaf and Morro da Urca peaks through the internal photo. The back cover features liner notes written by Sergio Porto, also known as Stanislaw Ponte Preta. Additionally, a welcome message written in English, French and Spanish can be find enclosed with three fantastic photographs of well-known Rio de Janeiro spots. Everything is included with the download package. The music features songs celebrating Rio de Janeiro, such as Cidade Maravilhosa, Rio, Valsa de Uma Cidade, among others.
I’m taking the internal English presentation, which explains a lot the whole RGE idea on his beautiful tribute to Rio de Janeiro 4h centenarian. Tracks include:
Welcome to Rio!
This album is a living picture of Rio de Janeiro of nowadays. A happy and welcome city, opening its arms for the tourists from the whole world, specially in this commemorative year of its 4th centenarian. The musics recorded in the long play, are the merry melodies sung by the “Cariocas”* in the streets, during the whole year and in the sensational days of Carnival. When you take this musical souvenir, you are taking a piece of Brazil’s heart!
