Musica Popular Brasileira em Expansao (1965)

I’m sure you will be amazed, once again Caetano pleases us with another album with lots of fascinating details. I have searched for this one on every discography, auction site, search engines and I could not gather a single mention. If you Google “musica popular brasileira em expansao”, the result is null. Anyway, this is not what makes this album a treat. Let’s see.

This is Aecio Flavio e Sexteto, Berimbau Trio e Quinteto Sambatida – Musica Popular Brasileira em Expansao (1965), for Festival. Maestro Aecio Flavio is a well-known Brasilian artist that takes part on this session with a sextet on eight songs, Berimbau is the legendary Bossa Nova instrumental trio that brings the bassist Bituca, Wagner Tiso and Paulinho Braga and Quinteto Sambatida is so far an enygma. Bituca sings track 01 – Cancao do Sal with Aecio Flavio Sexteto and I will ask for Caetano Rodrigues help to review this album and explain who exactly is Bituca. Tracks include:

“In 1965, the producer Ismael Correa was given a task by the Festival Label. He was to bring together on one LP, three of the most significant groups from the Minas Gerais instrumental Bossa Nova scene (unknown at the time on the Rio – Sao Paulo axis). It would be just a good compilation album, if it was not for the curious participation of the Berimbau Trio bass player, nicknamed Bituca who sang “Cancao do Sal” with the sextet of the pianist Aecio Flavio. Later he changed back to his real name: Milton Nascimento.” – Caetano Rodrigues

Final and important message: you will see bellow a new Loronix feature, made available only for testing purposes. There you can have a “test drive” on four tracks of this album, including Cancao do Sal with Milton Nascimento vocals. I need feedback on this new feature to decide for a purchase and implementation on a regular basis. Please use comments section to provide feedback. Thanks in advance. Tracks include:

Fantastico -this album is really very rare- never saw it on vinil- Caetano is back to Loronix and this means the best music of the world- Bossa Nova – let us feel better again especially on these grey and cold days and moment here in Germany.

Thanks Caetano for sending the sun from Brazil.

Best wishes

Hi Zeca,

a great album, I looked for it since I saw it in Caetanos book.

Thank you very much Caetano!!!

I like the sample idea very much,
so you can test it before you make the download. I would be nice to have this on regular basis.

Congratulations on deserved success of hitting 2M mark!

Thanks to you Zeca and to Caetano for sharing this treasure, not least for Milton nascimento fans.

Do you have composer or other information for track 12 Altema? Not familiar with this rare piece.

More thanx to Caetano from over here, Madrid is sunny today (but cold) and puts me in the mood to listen to this excellent album.

I liked the sample option very much, nice idea!

Nice touch, it’s ideal. I’m rarely disappointed with a download from Loronix but it’s great to find out what kind of album your getting before you download. Especially if you don’t have a fast connection / don’t have a rapidshare account and can’t be bothered to refresh your IP.

So, yes, sounds like my kind of thing, think i’ll download this one 🙂
Many thanks, Happy New Year everyone, and congrats on reaching the 2 Million mark

I agree with the other comments — the preview option is really useful.

Thanks very much for this excellent post; yet more history is revealed here, this time the hidden history of a scene that was off the Rio-São Paulo radar, as Zeca explains. By the way, I would highly recommend Márcio Borges’s book “Os sonhos não envelhecem: histórias do Clube da Esquina” to anyone who reads Portuguese and wants to know more about Bituca and the BH scene.

Zeca: Bituca is the nickname by which nobody less than Milton Nascimento is called since childhood. By the way, “Canção do Sal” is one of his compositions.

Abraços e, mais uma vez, parabéns!

One more vote for Preview option, nice feature.

BTW, correcting typo in earlier comment, the song I was asking for composer info on is
12 – Waltema with Aecio Flavio Sexteto

Thanks in advance for any information you can give on that composition.

Wishing you and Caetano a great New Year

My congratulations to you for your wonderful site. Please do add the sample tracks as a regular tool. This will surely help to get even more people interested in ‘Brazilliance’ (as I like to call it).

I have been testing the technology today in another environment very similar to Loronix and my problem is how to avoid a significant decrease on page load performance when more than 10 of these preview tracks boxes are available. If a single one as we have today, it is easy and nothing changes, but with a load of 10 or more, the performance is not acceptable.

Anyway, I will keep thinking on alternatives. I have some, just a matter of putting effort to implement and test.

This thing is amazing and I will not give up easily.

Cheers, zeca

What a joy to have something that you have wished for (a preview function) suddenly appear. You are a mind reader as well as the great music blogger of the ages. Thank you so much (and yes,superb album).

The possible loss of performance due to the sample feature might easily be limited if you decrease the number of albums being presented in a single post. The current post shows 13 album plus season’s extras, that’s quite a lot.

By the way – I am desperately looking for Dóris Monteiro’s 1964 album, the one with the black and white cover.

January 18 is my birthday and this record would be the nicest gift 🙂

On Quinteto Sambatida personnel enigma, here is what Aécio Flávio has to say (on his Museu da Pessoa site under entry for Milton Nascimento):
Quinteto Sambatida […] era o Eduardo Prates, no piano; um menino chamado Sérgio Werneck, depois mudou-se pra São Paulo, tocava contrabaixo; tinha mais o Maurílio, que era baterista; Celinho do Piston, esse já morreu e o Nivaldo Ornellas

Aécio Flávio’s PESSOAS page with above information is at
