Conjunto BemBossa - Birimbau Sambas (1964)

It’s 1 a.m. and I’m still busy working. It seems 2007 will never end. Anyway, I decided to come to Loronix and make something easy and straightforward, the repost of this album recorded in 1964 by this really obscure group, a nice and very curious Bossa Jazz instrumental album that deserves another chance, now featuring better cover scans and lossless FLAC option. Let’s see.

This is Conjunto BemBossa – Birimbau Sambas (1964), for Destaque, featuring instrumental renditions of Brazilian songs in the Bossa Jazz style. Conjunto BemBossa has sax, piano, organ, bass, drums, accordion, guitar and percussion and it pretty obscure. If someone has a hint on musicians in this session, please use comment section to share this information if us, the album is very well played and it seems we have renowned musicians here. Tracks include:

01 – Consolação (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – A Canção Que Virou Você (Luis Antônio)
03 – Berimbau (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
04 – Meu Nome É Ninguém (Haroldo Barbosa / Luis Reis)
05 – Não Sabemos (Rubens Caruso)
06 – Foi a Noite (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
07 – Garota de Ipanema (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
08 – Água de Beber (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
09 – Vou Andar Por Aí (Newton Chaves)
10 – Dona Baratinha (N. Ramalho / A. Rêgo)
11 – Nossos Momentos (Haroldo Barbosa / Luis Reis)
12 – Lamento da Lavadeira (Monsueto / Nilo Chagas / João Violão)


Esse disco pode ser buscado no Abracadabra.

Hi Zeca,

this sounds like an unknown Moacyr
Silva album.
This is exactly his tenor-sound.

Como comentado pelo AD na postagem do Abracadabra, algumas das músicas são as mesmas do disco Samba 40 graus do Moacyr Marques. E – opinião minha – nas demais faixas, o sax também parece o dele …

Assumingly, this fine album was compiled by the record label from existing recordings:

Seven songs are identical with the recordings by Moacyr Marquez on his album ‘Samba 40 Graus’ from 1961 (A Canção Que Virou Você, Meu Nome É Ninguém, Não Sabemos, Foi a Noite, Água de Beber, Lamento da Lavadeira and Nossos Momentos). One song is identical with the recording by Moacyr Marquez from his album ‘Samba Geléia’ from 1962 (Dona Baratinha).

Four songs (Consolação, Berimbau, Garota de Ipanema and Vou Andar Por Aí), all composed in 1963 and 1964, have a smaller line-up with sax, piano, bass and drums – missing the guitar, organ and accordion. Besides, they have a different production sound without reverb effects. But above all, the sax player has a different tone and plays differently.

Apparently, these four songs were recorded by Zito Righi as the cover of ‘Birimbau Sambas’ is included in the picture you posted in “Bob Fleming – Jovens Enamorados (1965)”, showing Zito Righi surrounded by his various albums:

In late August this year, I wrote to Ney Righi, asking if he might know further details to agree or disagree, but unfortunately he did not reply.

However, it was common practice in the recording industry to compile albums from released or unreleased material of various artists using a new artist’s name, just like ‘Poema do Adeus’ by Conjunto Balambossa was compiled by recordings by Celso Murilo and Fats Elpídio.

Thank you very much for the information, AD. There is only one small correction to be done: “Meu nome é ninguém” and “Foi a noite” are also on “Samba Geléia”.

Of course, my fault.
