Toninho Horta - Terra dos Passaros (1979)



Jazz meets Clube da Esquina, this is the best definition I can give to you on another Toninho Horta LP at Loronix. I remember the first one and how people get excited with Toninho Horta – Diamond Land (1979) featuring only instrumental tracks. Terra dos Passaros was released exactly 10 years before Diamond Land and has a blend of instrumental and tracks with lyrics sung by Toninho Horta exactly as his Clube da Esquina peers. This is a major step on my Toninho Horta education, a very important musician on the development of the Brazilian guitar. Let’s see.

This is Toninho Horta – Terra dos Passaros (1979), for Odeon, presented here by a vinyl reissue sponsored by MinasCaixa, a financial institution in Minas Gerais. I think I spoke everything at the first paragraph, instead of the jazzy approach of Diamond Land, Terra dos Passaros is MPB with Toninho Horta receiving in the set a constellation of musicians, with highlights to Milton Nascimento, Hugo Fattoruso, Airto Moreira, Nivaldo Ornellas, Wagner Tiso, Raul de Souza, Novelli, Boca Livre and many others. I will try to setup a sample track at Loronix Preview Center, but I think is not necessary, this is a flawless release. Tracks include:


Toninho Horta

Milton Nascimento
Lena Horta
Hugo Fattoruso

Great record; one of the best records that came from Minas Gerais, along with… well, perhaps the whole of Milton Nascimento’s output from the beginning since late 70’s 🙂

Thanks… This is amazing!!!!!

I always skeptical of Clube de Esquina members solo albums…. but this is really great, almost as great as a Biituca record! Actually, it sounds like what Pink Floyd would have sound like if they had musical talent…

I already fell in love with “Ceu de Brasilia” from Simone’s fantastic “Face a Face”, which I also discovered on this site (although I already had many tracks of that album from a compilation), and it’s awesome to hear such a different version!
