Dorival Caymmi - Caymmi e Seu Violao (1959)

I received a call from a friend that loves Brazilian music, but does not have much patience or computer skills to use Loronix Find It and search for the music he is looking for. It is better this way, he has a great sense of humor and I have a lot of fun when he calls to ask for help with Loronix matters. He called this afternoon looking for “the pink Caymmi album with Caymmi and violao only”, according with his own words.

When I reached this album, made available in June 2006 with ZERO comments, I told him to wait 24 hours and check Loronix front page. The first thing I did was searching for my vinyl to make a new copy and produce better cover scans. This album is an essential and really needs a better approach and a whole day at the front page. Let’s see.

This is Dorival Caymmi – Caymmi e Seu Violao (1959), for Odeon, with production and direction of Aloysio de Oliveira. According with Luiz Americo and his 100 Discos Fundamentais da Musica Popular Brasileira collection, Odeon executives did not believe that an album with only Caymmi’s voice and violao would be commercially viable, since other artists previously recorded all songs with orchestra and conjunto accompaniment, being the single exception 08 – O Bem do Mar. But the tireless Aloysio de Oliveira could make it and this album still sounds fresh almost 50 years before recorded. Dorival Caymmi was on his peak, delivering definitive renditions of his own repertoire. Now I can rest assured this masterpiece has the place deserved at Loronix. Tracks include:

01 – Canoeiro (Dorival Caymmi)
02 – A Jangada Voltou Só (Dorival Caymmi)
03 – 2 de Fevereiro (Dorival Caymmi)
04 – É Doce Morrer no Mar (Dorival Caymmi / Jorge Amado)
05 – Coqueiro de Itapoã (Dorival Caymmi)
06 – O Mar (Dorival Caymmi)
07 – O Vento (Dorival Caymmi)
08 – O “Bem” do Mar (Dorival Caymmi)
09 – Quem Vem Pra Beira do Mar (Dorival Caymmi)
10 – A Lenda do Abaeté (Dorival Caymmi)
11 – Promessa de Pescador (Dorival Caymmi)
12 – Noite de Temporal (Dorival Caymmi)


Esse disco pode ser buscado no 300 Discos.

Olá Zeca,

Você tem razão, esse disco é imperdível. Eu já baixei tudo que tem do grande Caymmi no Loronix (infelizmente parece que o link para Canções Praieiras fosse tirado), mas vou ser feliz de pegar Caymmi e seu Violão na nova versão re-Lorinixada. Mais uma vez,

You are too nice for your own good. Maybe this guy wants you to fly to his house and spoon feed him too!
